Turtle Fur’s 2019 Collection Warms Heads and Hearts of Fans with Expanded Project Warmth
January 24, 2019
Turtle Fur introduces cold-weather technology to everyday essentials
Morrisville, VT (January 24, 2019) – For over 35 years, Turtle Fur has been the leader in outdoor, snow sports and lifestyle markets for headwear and accessories. Located in the shadows of Vermont’s highest peak, Turtle Fur knows tough weather and how to provide warmth and protection for those cruel New England winter days. Debuting at Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver, CO, the new 2019-20 fall/winter collection continues to prove the brand’s maniacal attention to the smallest, yet warmest, details. And to ensure that those in need are also kept warm during cold, winter months, Turtle Fur is announcing plans to put more resources into their Project Warmth initiative.
“As a company, we take pride in providing high-quality outdoor gear,” says Josh Pombar, Director of Marketing for Turtle Fur. “What we admire the most is the passion both our employees and fans show when it comes to giving back to our communities. The production of our product goes much further than the end-consumer, it provides comfort to someone who would otherwise go without.”
In 2008, Turtle Fur created the Project Warmth initiative to offer proper headwear for homeless shelters, hospitals, schools and family centers in and around Vermont. Over the past ten years the project has expanded to a national stage. It’s a relatively easy program: Using social media, consumers share a photo of themselves wearing Turtle Fur products, tagging the brand with the hashtag #projectwarmth in the caption. Turtle Fur sees it and sends one hat or cold weather accessory to someone in need. In 2018, Turtle Fur donated over 10,000 pieces of first-quality product. For 2019, Turtle Fur aims to donate 20,000 pieces of cold-weather headwear.
With the opportunity to do-good with every Turtle Fur purchase, the 2019-20 fall/winter collection additions are a no-brainer for a warmer and protected winter, both for the wearer, and someone in need.
