We are a lot more planet-friendly now than previous seasons. As outdoor enthusiasts, it made sense to take nature into consideration when making design & production decisions. We've made a lot of changes to our products that aren't just kinder on the environment, but better for you too!
To differentiate between our older products and our new, friendly ones we have introduced our own internal certification called 'Green Board Approved'. This will apply to all products that meet our earth-friendly goals from Winter 2019 onwards. If you buy any of these products they will be stamped with our Green Board Approved seal of approval.
To reduce carbon, water and fabric waste we have increased our product lifespans. The longer you can enjoy a product, the less frequently you'll need to replace it, so from Winter 2019 we've put all our outerwear products through advanced testing to ensure a longer lifespan. To back this up our warranties have increased from 12 months to five years, meaning you can enjoy your Westbeach gear as long as possible.
Our favourite changes this season
