EPHEMERA SARL (field & fish brand) is a member of the 1% for the planet organization and therefore donates 1% of its turnover to associations dealing with the environment and which are themselves approved to receive these donations.

EPHEMERA has helped in particular the association SOS Loire vivante and the foundation for the Wild Rivers

The 1% is a significant effort because on the one hand it is unavoidable: the turnover is an amount that cannot be ‘tampered with’ contrary to the result and the commitment is repetitive: we pay back this amount whether our results are good or less good …. For us, it is a kind of voluntary environmental tax that we impose on ourselves to participate in the maintenance or restoration of the quality of our waterways which are our main reason to exist economically: without them, no fishing ….

If you search on the website of 1% for the planet the French companies of the sport fishing sector, you will notice that we are the only French company to practice the 1% (the other member of the sector being a fishing guide, Miquel Maxime). It is therefore necessary that the fishermen as customers push the other companies of the sector to act in the same way and to help financially to the safeguard of our rivers.

PAS D'EMBALLAGE PLASTIQUE

As you may have noticed if you have purchased our products, we do not deliver our clothes in disposable plastic packaging but in mesh bags that can be used to carry your field & fish clothes or other items. We now also deliver shoes and waders in mesh bags. The products are packaged as soon as they leave the production line.

02
BLUE DESIGN

The fabrics we use for our technical products have the BlueSign label. BlueSign is an independent Swiss organization that certifies that the production of fabrics respects the environment, the health of those who produce and the health of those who will use these products. This certificate concerns all the stages of production and the various possible treatments. This label is the most restrictive in terms of respect for these environmental rules and in particular, it covers all the points required by the European eco label.

03
MATIERES RECYCLÉES

Whenever possible, we use repreve-labeled fabrics: this label certifies that the fabrics come from the recycling of used materials. These materials are basically plastic bottles, but recycling also includes plastic residues from the various production processes and, increasingly, the recycling of used clothing.
