How is the Great Auk Parka sustainable?

It is integral to our mission to make sure every step of our manufacturing is done with the planet in mind. We offset all carbon emissions by investing in sustainability initiatives around the world, ensuring that Great Auk products are shipped to your door 100% Carbon Neutral.

We believe that luxury brands must shift from using nature’s most sought-after resources to protecting them. While other companies continue to spin their tires, the Down-Less Parka utilizes innovations such as NASA-invented Aerogel insulation, buttons carved from Corozo Seeds, and a 100% recycled waterproof shell. The result is a garment crafted from our planet, for our planet. 

We proudly wear the Great Auk logo as a reminder of our birthplace and our vision. We’re committed to honoring the legacy of the Great Auk by creating high quality products that are built to last, so you can Pass on Down for generations to come.
