Products from North
North is a manufacturer of kite and foil equipment from New Zealand. The focus is on kites and accessories for kitesurfing as well as for foiling, e.g. wingfoiling. North's products are of high quality workmanship and designed for durability.
At North, a lot is already being done on the topic of sustainability. As a water sports company, the ocean has a completely different importance. They are trying to avoid as much plastic waste as possible by soon completely eliminating plastic in packaging. Each North kite and Nova wing bag contains an average of 33 recycled PET bottles. To date, North has recycled over 1.2 million bottles.
Other steps include using 100% organic cotton in T-shirts and sweaters, for example, as well as adhering to high social standards. You can learn more here on the manufacturer's website.
