PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Patagonia was founded by Yvon Chouinard in 1973, the company's roots are in clothing for rock and alpine climbing, but they now produce a diverse mix of apparel targeted towards skiers, snowboarders, surfers and climbers. Patagonia are a world leader in creating ethical, sustainable clothing.
Recycled Polyester - In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles making them the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health. Using recycled polyester lessens dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
Responsible Wool Standard - Wool is a long-lasting, breathable, insulating, naturally absorbent and odour resistant material - and for these reasons has a long history as a preferred choice for outdoor clothing. All virgin wool used in Patagonia products is sourced under the strict guidelines of the RWS (Responsible Wool Standard), and the entire supply chain that processes the wool has strict chain-of-custody practices in place. Since the biggest impact of making wool fibre happens at the farm level during the raising of the sheep, Patagonia have also developed their own PWS (Patagonia Wool Standard), which uses RWS as a foundation but goes beyond it in several key areas of animal welfare practices.
