The first eco-friendly fleece that can be washed with a good green conscience! <br><br>We at namuk consider sustainability not only a duty, but an obligation; not a trend, but a new tradition. With the Step fleece pants, we’re taking a determined leap toward the future. <br><br>These warming pants, which can be worn comfortably under ski pants or an overall, are made of BIO Primaloft fleece - an absolute first. <br><br>The material is made of 100% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) synthetic fibers and ultimately biodegrades back to its natural elements – not, of course, before keeping a couple generations of kids warm while playing hide-and-seek, building huts and flying kites, not to mention withstanding dozens of wash cycles, without contributing to microplastic pollution like most fleece gear!
PrimaLoft® Bio™ is the first-ever synthetic insulation and fabric made from 100% recycled, biodegradable* fibers.
These fibers break down when exposed to the right environments, such as oceans or landfills. They are optimized to be more attractive to the naturally-occurring microbes found in these environments – returning the insulation and fabric to natural elements – such as gases.
What’s Left? The biodegradation* process leaves behind water, methane, CO2 and biomass.
*93.8% biodegradation in 646 days under ASTM D5511 conditions (accelerated landfill environment); 76.6% biodegradation in 973 days under ASTM D6691 conditions (accelerated marine/ocean environment). The stated rate and extent of degradation do not mean that the product will continue to degrade.
