The ocean is what brings our community together. But studies show that plastic pollution is destroying nature's playground and harming marine life. At North, we believe it’s our responsibility to find innovative solutions to help achieve the elimination and prevention of plastic waste and marine litter. Our long term goal is to completely remove industry-standard materials like plastic from our packaging.

At North we support the fundamental movement towards sustainable production and consumption, reducing the plastic in our oceans and promoting a cleaner future. Our goal is to increase our use of recycled materials in all products. Every North Kite and Nova Wing Bag is made from an average of 33 recycled PET bottles. And we’ve teamed up with FlexFit to include ‘Rescued and Renewed’ hats in our Accessories range.
The Global Recycling Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that helps to ensure businesses like ours are moving towards a cleaner future. The GRS verifies recycled materials, ensures social and environmentally responsible production, and eliminates the use of chemicals with potential for harm. All our North Kite and Wing bag fabric is certified to the Global Recycling Standard.
Every North T-shirt and Sweat is made from 100% Organic cotton, grown on farms without the use of any toxic and persistent pesticides or fertilizers. Organic cotton farms start by looking after the world beneath our feet - taking care of the soil and the tiny critters that help keep the earth healthy.

Whales and many other marine species face more threats today than at any other time in history. Three-times World Kitesurfing Champion Jalou Langeree put her hand up to protect these animals and the place they call home. Teaming up with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), Jalou’s goal is to help make the ocean safer and healthier, and in doing so, save lives and livelihoods.
