Our Commitment to Conservation

DRYFT strives to lower our impact through sustainable manufacturing and packaging practices, and also by contributing to habitat restoration and conservation efforts. In addition to working towards lowering our footprint by phasing our plastic packaging, we have partnered with One Tree Planted and bluesign® to help us achieve our conservation goals.

With every wader sold we plant a tree along salmon and steelhead bearing streams in the Pacific Northwest. Salmonids require cold clean water to survive and trees help provide that.

One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. Together we plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. A core mission of One Tree Planted is also to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well being, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model. 


As anglers around the globe increasingly face loss of fisheries due to many factors including habitat destruction, changing ocean and climate conditions and unsustainable fishing practices we need to look forward to the future.

bluesign®

We are focused on sustainable and responsible manufacturing. Our waders and jackets meet the criteria to be bluesign® approved. This means our textiles are manufactured with the lowest possible impact on people and the environment through responsible use of resources. Additionally this certifies the highest degree of safety for the consumer. 

Single use plastic and packaging

We are phasing out single use plastic packaging in our shipping and product packaging. Moving forward we will only use 100% recycled, reusable and/or recyclable materials for our packaging and shipping materials. Some items from the outlet or past seasons may still be packaged in plastic, but moving forward we are eliminating plastic packaging from our supply chain.

Our commitment

Every year we donate to multiple non profit organizations to help them with the important work they do to improve access to fishing through fish and habitat conservation. If you represent a non profit organization and would like to request a donation please contact us.
