Greenpeace Detox slams Patagonia and Mammut

Written by Brett Mathews

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN – Greenpeace has released the results of air emissions tests in the stores of outdoor brands, Mammut, The North Face, Norrona and Haglöfs which claim to show that concentrations of volatile PFCs "are up to 60 times higher in these stores than in an average enclosed room, and up to 1,000 times higher than in outside air." Greenpeace conducted air tests in stores in Taiwan and five European countries: Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. The highest PFC-concentrations were found in the German stores of the Swiss outdoor brand Mammut, followed by Haglöfs store in Oslo, Norway.
