An On-Trend and Degradable Light Rain Jacket Is All We Need for Summer

Tretorn has been around since 1891 and from the start, the aim has been to be an innovative company with functionality, quality and contemporaneity in mind.
Eco Essentials is Tretorn’s long-term process for sustainable innovation. It’s an ambitious process, ”an initiative for revolutionizing the way we do business”, affecting the company’s entire eco system – and the ambition is to create a sustainable business that resembles an organic system, where all resources (human, natural and economic) are renewed and in balance.
Through Eco Essentials products, Tretorn challenges existing norms and pushes the boundaries for how they – and potentially, others – can interact with nature and create more circular processes.
The first Eco Essentials project was the Leftover Project, exclusive raincoats made of leftover fabrics (read about it on Make it last here). This was followed by the Ghost Net Collection and the Rainjacket By the Sea (read about it on Make it last here).
Both these projects were launched in collaboration with Naturkompaniet. The third sustainability project resulting from this partnership launched last Thursday on June 21. The Bio Plant Jacket is a degradable light rain jacket. It has the resemblance of nature’s own circular eco system.
The Bio Plant Jacket is created from plants like sugarcane and corn with the help of cutting-edge technology. The zipper is made from the only biodegradable polyamide yarn in the world – and makes the jacket 100% degradable.
The jacket’s features:
Biodegradable front zip
Light Rain Jacket
Adjustable Sleeve Helm
Hidden Side Pockets
Large but fitted hoodie
