M's Long Sleeved See & Believe Responsibili-Tee - Gravel Heather
Coming Soon £40.00
A Patagonia long sleeve t-shirt made from 100% recycled material - turning 4.8 plastic bottles and 0.26 pounds of scrap fabric into a new garment you can wear for years, saving 63 gallons of water compared to the production of a regular cotton t-shirt.
The Long Sleeved See & Believe Responsibili-Tee is made from a comfortable and sturdy 50/50 blend of recycled cotton/postconsumer recycled polyester - reducing the need for petroleum to make raw materials, whilst also directing waste away from landfill and incinerators. Featuring original artwork by Neil Hubert, on the back is the super sized “Bear Witness - Defend Public Lands - PATAGONIA” mountain range design, and on the front the text is repeated smaller on the left chest. Taped shoulder seams lend comfort and fit retention.

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.
Fair Trade Certified - Patagonia pay a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries their label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management.
