Patagonia is on a mission to change the way we think about our clothes. The apparel industry alone is responsible for 10% of global emissions. One of the single biggest things we can do to combat this as individuals is to keep our clothing in use for longer. Keeping your existing gear in play for a further 9 months can reduce its carbon, water, and waste footprints by 20-30%.
To Patagonia quality is an environmental issue. By addressing its own responsibility to people and planet, whilst empowering its customer community, it seeks to lead as an example for other companies to follow. Whilst their product has been built to highest environmental and performance standards, Patagonia product is also covered by the Iron Clad Guarantee to ensure that whatever life throws at you and your gear, it’s covered for repair.
