Greenpeace activists wear cardboard boxes reading "Better This Than PFC Gear" inside and outside The North Face shop in Sydney in an action aiming to highlight the company's continuous failure to eliminate hazardous chemicals like PFCs (poly- and per-fluorinated compounds) from their weatherproof products.

The activity is one of the more than 130 organised by Greenpeace volunteers and the outdoor community taking place in 10 days in 19 countries around the globe.

A Greenpeace report reveals that hazardous and persistent chemicals, dangerous to human health and the environment, have been found in the products of leading outdoor brands, including The North Face. The companies continue to use PFCs to make their gear waterproof, despite their claims of sustainability and love for nature.
