This winter, Snowroller is taking action by going through a green shift.
We may be small, but hey – one step in the right direction is a good start!
The fashion industry is one of the world’s most polluting industries, with relatively little sustainable innovation being implemented by companies. It is time for industry players to practice more sustainable initiatives throughout their value chains.

Snowroller aims to be one of the leading actors of sustainable fashion ski wear by adopting a circular business model and overall challenging the norm of how clothes should be made. Having just started our own journey towards a greener fashion industry, we are excited to keep innovating our methods in order to help sustain a healthy ecosystem.
The fabric of this year’s ski suits is made from 100% recycled PET bottles (Global Recycled Standard – GRS certified). The zipper is also made of recycled plastic. This means – the same quality as before, just better for the environment!
We have further managed to keep our waste to a minimum by using any leftover materials for our packaging. You will therefore receive your product in a bag of the same fabric as our ski suits!
This year we are launching a test project for our Norwegian customers where they can deposit their old ski suit and get a voucher to buy a new product. The used products are either sold to new customers directly or redesigned.
Unfortunately, this service will not be available for customers outside Norway this year, but hopefully, we will be able to launch it in other countries next season.
Certificates and Organizations
For us, the environment is not just a trend. Taking responsibility for our environment is not an option, but an obligation. To show that these are not just empty words, we work with these organizations.
GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD
The fabric of this year’s ski suits is made from 100% recycled PET bottles (Global Recycled Standard – GRS-certified). The standard applies to the entire supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labelling.
Our wool suits are made of 100% Oeko-tex 100-certified fabric. Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an international test and certification system for textiles that require that the substances do not contain allergenic dyes or carcinogenic dyes.
The products are sewn by our long-term partner in China who follows the BSCI standard. This means that they follow a program that aims to continuously improve working conditions in their factories.
Mulesing-free woolSnowroller does not tolerate unethical and inhuman treatment of animals and uses only mulesing-free wool. Our wool is examined and approved by Nanjing Wool Market.
