Leave It Better

Our Commitment to People, Places & Planet

Here at Norte, we’re constantly looking for ways to minimise our impact on the environment through the implementation of thoughtful and sustainable practices. Our Leave It Better philosophy is underpinned by the actions we take for People, Places & Planet.


TREE planting

Norte plants 5 trees for every product sold through our official partnership with Trees for the Future (TREES) and the Forest Garden Program.

You can keep track of our tree planting progress here.


Recycled Materials

The seriously warm insulation in your Norte Jacket is made from post-consumer recycled plastic. This means plastic that would be in our oceans or in landfill have been diverted and repurposed to make your jacket, minimising the impact of your jacket.

Elements Collection: 100% recycled P.E.T insulation, 100% recycled outer shell.


Cruelty-Free Products

We never use animal down in any of our products. Feathers are for keeping our furry friends warm, Norte Jackets are for keeping you warm!


Plastic-Free Shipping

At Norte, we’ve eliminated all single-use plastics in our delivery process. Your Norte gear will arrive in an incredible dirt bag from the legends at the @betterpackagingco. Made from corn starch, these rad dirt bags can be reused or composted with your food scraps and garden waste, a nice little snack for your worms!


Carbon neutral operation

Our operation is completely carbon neutral! We ensure this by undertaking environmental audits through TREES and establishing carbon emission offsets.

We continuously work to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible, then we offset remaining emissions by giving annual donations to plant trees, with TREES (additional to donations to the Forest Garden Program with TREES).
