The North Face’s Denali Recycled Hoodie: Green, Comfy, Durable
By Wendy Gabriel
With the bulk of its body made from recycled materials, the Denali Hoodie is both green and practical.
If you are an avid outdoors enthusiast, then you are probably already a devotee of The North Face. The California-based company not only makes great products that are stylish and perform at a high level, but also cares about how it uses the resources necessary to make its products.
The North Face’s commitment to protecting the planet is what really sets it apart. The company has a philosophy it calls the “virtuous cycle” that joins the passion for the outdoors with environmental responsibility.
It is a simple concept based on the idea that “if you get people outdoors, they will love that experience. The more they come back, the more they will grow to care about conservation and protecting the environment.”
This philosophy extends to the fabrics sourced for many pieces North Face apparel. A beautiful example is the Women’s Denali Hoodie ($199). This stunning jacket is made with 56% to 84% recycled content (pre- and/or post-consumer sources), so the material in this product helps divert waste from landfills and saves valuable resources.

A favorite fleece among outdoor enthusiasts, this hoodie is made from durable, soft, recycled Polartec 300 series fleece on the body, with abrasion-resistant panels at the shoulders, torso, elbows and hood for added durability at these high-stress areas. The hoodie comes in eight different color combinations and is a great layering piece for below-zero winter weather or a perfect jacket by itself for spring or fall.
