PrAna has been working over the last three years through the Poly Program to cut back on the number of plastic bags it uses in packaging and has now announced that it has cut 31,000 pounds of plastic so far. The core of prAna's Poly Program is to deliver products without the waste. For this purpose, prAna put together a task force to conduct tests to see if more colors and styles could do without a protective bag. From its beginning in California in 1993, prAna has been committed to weaving sustainable practices into its operations and supply chain. The lifestyle brand draws its name from the ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of the spirit.
