Ispo just communicated the winners of its Brandnew Awards contest for start-ups and/or young companies in the industry. One outdoor brand made it into the club of the award winners – surprise, surprise – in the category “eco and fair trade”. The young Nuremberg-based brand of climbing apparel Monkee walked away with the award thanks to innovative cuts and fittings, but also through an eco-friendly supply and manufacturing chain. In addition, Monkee is very active in environmental projects, notably for the protection of mountain gorillas.
