A Hands-On Approach to Sustainability
Stewardship: The careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care - Merriam Webster. Here at Duluth Trading Company, we recognize this earth we’re so lucky to call home doesn’t belong to us - it’s merely been entrusted to our care until the next generation takes over. So we make decisions through that lens, striving to reduce our environmental impact and improve the earth’s future in every practical way.
SUPERIOR STANDARD: BUILT TO LAST, BUILT TO LESSEN OUR FOOTPRINT
ON THE PATH TO SUSTAINABILITY
We don’t make throw-away products. That means our customers get more life from their purchases and, in turn, less waste ends up in a landfill. We promote product circularity in our outlet stores. We seek consistent improvements by keeping an eye on eco-friendly technology and potential sustainability partners. Just like any true stewardship, our quest is ever continuing.
Giving Product a Second Life
We aim to find ways to increase product circulation by diverting gently used returns from landfills and into our outlet locations.
All our consumer-facing outbound corrugate is recyclable and contains at least 79% recycled material. In 2021, we recycled over 2k tons in our retail stores and fulfillment centers.
We strive to increase the use of recycled materials in our products without sacrificing quality and durability.
