Since 2010, prAna has taken a grassroots approach to reduce plastic and excess waste in its packaging. Now, the brand is taking the next step, pledging to eliminate plastic from its consumer packaging by 2021, the use of Ancient and Endangered Forest by 2022, and to eliminate virgin forest fibers by 2025. With the Responsible Packaging Movement, prAna invites brands and consumers to join in this journey. prAna is pleased to announce that Mara Hoffman, Outerknown, and Toad and Co. have joined the movement at launch along with supporting non-profit partners 5 Gyres and Canopy.

“As a sustainability leader in the apparel industry, we have always looked beyond our products to use our business as a platform for good,” said Rachel Lincoln, director of sustainability, prAna. “We are so excited to launch this movement to bring people together with a platform to share knowledge. The RPM represents the continuation of our journey and our commitment to Clothing for Positive Change.”
