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.
Fair Trade Certified™: Patagonia pays a bonus for each Fair Trade Certified product that is bought. The money is put into an account managed by the factory employees and is aimed at supporting social, economic and environmental projects. For example, employees can choose to use this money to build a new school or clinic, pay student grants or invest in community projects.
