As a kid, my first pair of non hand-me-down gloves was a pair of Swanys. They were warm, comfortable and lasted through years of teenage angst and abuse. As such, I was psyched to get another pair on my hands this year. Swany's Eco-Pipe Gloves provide the warmth and comfort I've come to expect from the brand while taking gloves into a totally new dimension with their unique, environmentally friendly design.
The gloves are made from a recyclable fabric called Eco-Storm and they're sold with an addressed shipping envelope for customers to return their gloves in once they wear out. Upon receiving a pair of worn out gloves, Swany breaks down the old fibers and reuses them in the construction of new gloves. They claim this process comparatively uses 75 percent less energy and 80 percent less carbon dioxide. As an extra incentive, the envelope includes instructions on how customers can obtain a 10 percent discount on their next pair of gloves. With Swany's Eco-Pipe's both your hands and the environment win.
For an even warmer fit, try the Eco-2N1 that includes liners or one of the two mitten models within Swany's Eco-Circle line.
