WE LOVE THE OUTDOORS, AND WE KNOW THE DECISIONS WE MAKE TODAY WILL IMPACT OUR WORLD TOMORROW.
WE PRIORITIZE SUSTAINABILITY.
Sustainability is a key part of the Ridge Merino promise to you. We strive to use all-natural, renewable and biodegradable fabric and materials whenever possible.
Most of our products are made mostly - or entirely - of Merino wool, a natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber produced from the Merino breed of sheep. The sheep eat grass, drink water and take in the sunshine -- all essential ingredients to creating soft, comfortable Merino wool fibers. We only use wool from non-mulesed sheep and 100% of our wool is sustainably sourced from certified humane sheep farmers in Australia and New Zealand.
The eco-friendly TENCEL™ used in our Merino/TENCEL Collection is made from a renewable wood pulp harvested from sustainable forest plantations in an award-winning closed loop process -- products are developed with minimal environmental impact and waste generation and with the most efficient use of water, energy and other resources. TENCEL fibers are composed of natural material and are biodegradable and compostable, meaning they fully revert back to nature.
WE’RE A CALIFORNIA CERTIFIED GREEN BUSINESS.
We were one of the first companies in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. to achieve Green Business Certification from the California Green Business Network. To receive this certification, businesses must prove that they use sustainable and environmentally-friendly business practices. We’re proud to officially have Ridge Merino held to this higher standard, and it was a natural next step for our company.
WE GIVE BACK TO HELP THE ENVIRONMENT.
Every Ridge Merino purchase gives back. We’re a proud member of 1% For the Planet, a global movement of more than 1,200 member companies in 48 countries, all donating at least 1% of annual sales to environmental nonprofits. Since the company's inception, Ridge has donated to some great organizations including Protect Our Winters, Waterkeeper Alliance, Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, The Access Fund and Eastern Sierra Avalanche Center.
At our small headquarters in Mammoth Lakes, we go out of our way to be as environmentally-friendly as we can. We contract with Sierra Conservation Project for all of our office recycling.
