At Level Six, we understand the importance of conserving our watersheds and giving back to our communities. Our actions today affect future generations, and we take this responsibility seriously. Level Six has introduced several sustainability initiatives that we are incredibly proud of. We also know that we are far from perfect, so this is just the beginning and we have big aspirations for our future. We know that actions speak louder than words and we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the environment.
100% Recycled Nylon and PFC/PFAS/PFOS Free Dry Wear
All our waterproof, breathable fabrics are made of 100% recycled nylon and are PFAS-free. This includes our fabric, membrane, and DWR on all of our exhaust fabrics.
PFAS or long chain forever chemicals have been the standard for durable water repellency for outdoor garments. They are also our industry's dirty secret.
These toxic chemicals never breakdown and growing research shows the overwhelming health and environmental problems that they cause. We have been working incredibly hard and have finally eliminated PFAS. We are incredibly proud of this achievement and of continuing to hold ourselves to the highest environmental standard. We are also not alone in striving for this goal and are excited to be joined by the other industry partners in this sustainability milestone.
This is another step on our sustainability journey
with much more work to come
Making It Last
It's impossible to undo the years of overconsumption and waste that have brought us to this critical point. As a company, we're doing our best to change, but the most effective thing we can do is to invite you to join us. Whether it's at home, at a local repair shop, or with us, repair and maintain your gear. Limiting consumption and making your gear last is the first step in making a difference. Our products are made to last, and we're here to ensure that.
Recycled & Recyclable Packaging
The amount of single-use plastic and waste in the retail industry is staggering. At Level Six, we continually strive to find ways to minimize our use of single-use plastic packaging. We use 100% recycled cardboard for individually wrapped items, single bag liners for bulk shipments, and rolled clothing items tied with twine or casual apparel. It is our perpetual goal to mitigate our impact on our natural environment and lead the water sports industry toward a brighter and more environmentally sustainable future.
Petroleum Free Neoprene
We currently use limestone-based neoprene in our Jericho and Sombrio line of products and are committed to moving petroleum-based new products in our line up to more eco-friendly options.
Direct-to-consumer carbon-neutral shipping
For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments have created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
1% for Watershed Conservation
As a company and as industry leaders, we recognize that we have a responsibility to conserve our watersheds for all to enjoy. We take 1% of our direct retail sales and donate it to watershed conservation organizations across North America. We know that freshwater is our most precious resource, and it is our duty to preserve and cherish the environment for the health and well-being of this planet. Our livelihood depends on having clean and navigable waterways to explore and experience
