We're all for companies adding eco-friendly gear to their lines, but what makes us really happy is when a company commits itself to the environment by adopting a sustainable business model. Because, let's face it, caring about the planet involves much more than offering one organic shirt in your line. From where they source their materials to the kind of energy their buildings run on, here are five companies that we already love for their athletic gear, but who impress us even more for the eco-friendly ways they run their business.
Winter is coming, and it's not just you that needs to be kept warm — your gadgets are vulnerable to freezing temps, too. If you're an iPad user, you can do your tablet a solid by keeping it nice and toasty this Winter in the wool felt NAU Pad Stash case ($75) that insulates your iPad from the chilly temps and keeps your travel essentials — like your passport, credit cards, and ID — close by in your carry-on. This comes in handy when heading through airport security and customs for your holiday travels. No one wants to be the person that holds up the security line.
The Nau Fluent Stash is unlike any gadget case I've seen; its origami-style design allows for three distinct pockets and one zippered mesh pouch for storing your tech (or anything else you're toting).
The case is constructed of classy die-cut felt with an aluminum buckle. When it's open, the case hangs on the back of a door, in a closet, or anywhere else for fast access. And, it's eco-friendly too; both the wool and aluminum are made from 100 percent recycled materials. Another bonus: Portland-based Nau will donate 2 percent of the purchase price to a charity of your choice.

When it's freezing outside, a puffer might be the only coat to get you through the cold. While slick puffers are always an option, so is this Nau Cocoon Coat ($325). It's not easy on the pocketbook, but your conscience will feel good knowing it's made out of recycled fabric and renewable goose down. It's not the most stylish thing on the Earth, but it's super warm and surprisingly lightweight. If bad weather calls, would you don this cozy cocoon?
