When the words ‘environmentally responsible’ come up in the topic of clothing no other major brand fits the definition better than Patagonia. From their supply chains to the customer they have a strict standard of ethics that supports such acts as the conservation of water and animal rights. Patagonia is even taking responsibility for their product after the consumer is finished with it, through the Common Threads Initiative, which accepts any Patagonia product back and promises to find a responsible way to recycle it so that it doesn’t end up in the land fill.
So what to do with items that can’t be or seem too valuable to recycled conventionally? Upcycle it!
And the results…
Used Rain Shells and Fleece or Down Jackets become cozy, cute, and functional coats for man’s best friend.
