POW and SCARPA form a new European Partnership
Protect Our Winters is proud to announce a new European level partnership with Scarpa. The Italian boot manufacturer based in Asolo “The City of a Hundred Horizons” has long been known for its cutting-edge mountain footwear but is now gaining prominence for its strides in reducing the environmental impact of its operations.
From photovoltaic installation on its company buildings that save 320 tonnes of CO2 a year to building products with repairability in mind, Scarpa is acting to protect the places we all love.
Scarpa’s latest innovation is the Maestrale Re-made a ski boot produced from waste production plastic that Scarpa has collected and catalogued over the last 30 years, this new boot creates 27% less co2 than the original.
The selling of this limited edition of 2022 pairs of Maestrale Re-mades will support our work here at Protect Our Winters, funding our advocacy and campaign work both within the outdoor community and in the wider world.
