How sustainable is Coalatree?
This screening has been done by Fairify on November 6th 2020

Coalatree is an American outerwear brand that was founded in 2010. The brand states that sustainability is of paramount importance, but there’s currently not enough information available to actually demonstrate this. The brand itself is not affiliated with quality marks, but a number of the factories it works with are certified by Fair Wear and BlueSign. On the other hand, it’s not clear which factories Coalatree works with and whether they pay living wages.

The brand states that the majority of its products are made from recycled or repurposed materials, but there’s no clear overview of the materials used. You can, however, see which material each product is made up of, but these materials are not sustainable and their origin is unknown. Coalatree uses uncertified wool and down, is not transparent about its carbon footprint and doesn’t have a policy in place to minimize emissions. All in all, there’s a lot of room for improvement.
