Patagonia Worn Wear campaign is a radical idea to encourage recycling.

The Patagonia Worn Wear is a trade-in campaign organised by Patagonia, which accepts Patagonia clothing that functions perfectly and is in good condition. When you take your good quality, used Patagonia gear, the store will give you credit to use in their stores.

The Worn Wear Clothing comes from our closets and garages, maybe they just have a small thing to be repaired, and are just collecting dust. Patagonia repairs the items and cleaned them using CO2, which saves water and energy compared to traditional methods.

Patagonia has always being a social responsible company and they think that we need to reduce our impact in the planet producing high quality garments that will last for years, and which could be repaired, so you do not need to buy anything new.

Patagonia’s biodiesel repair wagon pays tribute to the customers and repair techs who have kept Patagonia’s gear in use for over 40 years. There’s a solar-powered sewing machine in the back and all manner of zippers, buttons, threads and patches. It offers free clothing repairs, DIY repair tips and used Patagonia clothing at events across the European Resorts.

The Patagonia European Tour has been going on for a while this season, but these are the dates for the rest of the ski season:
