When it comes to staying warm during outdoor winter activities, protecting those digits is of the upmost importance. So we did some digging and found a whole slew of cozy, warm, sustainable gloves and mittens that are perfect for winter (and also happen to be vegan). So cover those fragile extremities and get out there and enjoy the season!

Picture Organic Clothing Madson Glove and Anna Mitten

The gloves are technically labeled as “men’s” and the mittens as “women’s,” but if you don’t have exceptionally large or small hands, we say they’re interchangeable! Both the gloves and mittens are fully synthetic, insulated, and made of partially recycled materials. They’re waterproof but breathable, use PFC-free DWR, the gloves have zipper pockets on the back to stash hand warmers or valuables, and even come with wrist leashes. Bonus: there’s soft material on the thumb for snot wiping (they also happen to be fairly budget-friendly as far as quality gloves go). Find the Madson Gloves here and the Anna Mittens here.

Marmot PreCip Eco Undercuff Glove

Much like the Marmot PreCip Eco Rain Jacket (which we featured in this post about eco-friendly rain jackets), this glove’s outer fabric is made of 100% recycled materials. It’s one of the least expensive gloves on this list, but it’s still cozy and waterproof and features a nice snug cuff to fit under your jacket sleeve instead of ballooning over it. It’s only available for men, but check it out here.

Ready, set, slide your hands into one of these sustainable gloves and mittens and stay warm this winter. And check out this post if you’re looking for sustainable snow pants or this post featuring sustainable coats and jackets. Whatever you do, don’t let a little snow keep you from playing outside. Wander on.
