SNO: Committed to Style and Sustainability

SNO: Committed to Style and Sustainability - SNO

The Canadian landscape is a playground for the adventurous soul. From the majestic peaks of the Rockies to the rugged beauty of the Atlantic coastline, there's no shortage of opportunities to explore, push your limits, and experience the thrill of being active in nature. Here at SNO, we understand that passion. We get the adrenaline rush of that first powder run, the camaraderie of a group hike, and the deep sense of accomplishment that comes with reaching a new fitness goal. But we also understand the growing concern for the environment, and the responsibility we all share to protect the incredible world we explore. That's why sustainability is a core value woven into the very fabric of SNO.

We believe in creating high-performance sportswear that keeps you comfortable, confident, and stylish, without compromising on environmental responsibility. We don't believe you have to choose between looking good and doing good. Here at SNO, you can have it all.

Taking Action: Sustainable Practices at SNO

Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond just a tagline. It's a philosophy that guides every step of our design and production process. Here are a few key ways we're making a difference:

  • Recycled Materials: A significant portion of our sportswear is crafted from recycled materials. We source plastic bottles, polyester scraps, and other post-consumer waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. By transforming this waste into high-quality fabrics, we reduce our reliance on virgin materials and minimize our environmental footprint.

  • Sustainable Manufacturing: We understand that the impact of a garment doesn't stop at the materials used. That's why we partner with manufacturers who share our commitment to sustainability. This means working with factories that utilize eco-friendly dyes and processes that minimize water consumption and pollution. We prioritize responsible sourcing and fair labor practices throughout our supply chain.

  • Durable Design: Fast fashion may be trendy, but it's a recipe for environmental disaster. Here at SNO, we believe in quality over quantity. We design and construct our garments using high-quality materials and expert techniques. This ensures your SNO gear can withstand even the most demanding adventures, from conquering mountain trails to logging hours at the gym. Not only does this save you money in the long run, but it also reduces the environmental impact associated with constantly replacing worn-out clothing.

Beyond the Label: A Sustainable Lifestyle

Sustainability is a journey, not a destination. While we're constantly innovating and improving our own practices, we believe everyone can play a role in creating a more sustainable future for sportswear. Here are some additional steps you can take to extend the life cycle of your SNO gear and further your sustainable sportswear journey:

  • Wash Smart: Washing your clothes in cold water reduces energy consumption and helps preserve the quality of the fabric. Not only will your SNO gear look great for longer, but it will also maintain its performance benefits.

  • Air It Out: Whenever possible, opt for air drying over using a clothes dryer. This saves energy and extends the life of your garments. The fresh air can even leave your SNO gear smelling great!

  • Give it a Second Life: Pre-loved SNO gear still has plenty of adventure left in it! Donate your gently used clothing to a local charity or sell it online. This allows others to experience the quality and style of SNO while minimizing textile waste.
