Sierra Designs Verde 40 Sleeping Bag, $150
Though its full line isn't made from sustainable material, within the last five years Boulder-based Sierra Designs has put a larger emphasis on protecting the areas its employees and customers enjoy.
One of its green- both literally and figuratively- products is its Verde 40 sleeping bag that's made of nearly all recycled material.
The shell and liner and insulation are made from 100-percent recycled polyester. Scott Kaier, a company spokesman said the zippers and draw cord aren't made from fully recycled material because they are not srrong or durable enough.
