Mont Bell sleeping bags recycled

Instead of sending their sleeping bags to landfill, Mont Bell’s Japanese customers can recycle them. If the bag was filled with synthetic insulation, their retail stores will accept washed bags back. You may recall in the past, we’ve said such programs are called Extended Producer Responsibility or EPR. Mont Bell are investigating how best to recycle and reuse the fibres they’ll get. Early ideas include cushions and mats. They are already using cutting room residuals to make stuffed toys. ::Mont bell [by WM]
