The first step to creating a better, more sustainable product is to gain knowledge. Through a partnership with an industry leading lifecycle assessment firm, we evaluated our current product and developed custom software to help guide our designs. This software helps us pinpoint where we can make the most difference and reduce the overall impact. This lifecycle assessment tool calculates all materials and energy used to create, sew and ship the finished product. The design of the Resin packs was driven by this tool resulting in lower impact material choices and more refined construction techniques. The result is a streamlined, functional pack with a 59%* reduction in carbon footprint compared to conventional nylon pack.
