Organic Cotton: Since 1996, PATAGONIA uses organically grown cotton exclusively in all of their cotton products.
Conventionally grown cotton is doused with chemical products. Research has shown that extensive and intensive use of synthetic fertilisers, soil additives, defoliants and other substances wreak terrible havoc on soil, water, air and many, many living things.
So PATAGONIA chose an alternative: organically grown cotton without harmful chemicals. Their yield is high, and the quality of the cotton they grow is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton. Their methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Organic farming is more time consuming, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
RECYCLED NYLON: Nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, Patagonia are finally finding some recycled nylon fibres that are suitable for clothing and are an pass rigorous manufacturing and product quality tests.
Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fibre, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fibre.For Patagonia, incorporating as much recycled nylon as possible reduces dependence on petroleum as a raw material source. It helps reduce waste, which prevents landfill and helps reduce toxic emissions generated by incinerators. It helps promote new recycling streams for nylon products that are no longer usable. Using recycled nylon also causes less air, water, and soil contamination compared to using non-recycled nylon.
