How Does Patagonia Make Their Recycled Clothing?

If you’ve paid any attention to Patagonia as of late, you’ll know the company has a firm stance on fighting to protect our planet. That takes many forms – everything from lobbying Congress, pushing to protect sacred lands all over the world, and even developing technologies to manufacture new product from waste like recycled fishing nets. Speaking of those recycled nets, they are some of the most harmful forms of plastic pollution in the ocean, which is why Patagonia partnered with recycled skateboard brand Bureo to create new products, like hats.

The new material, called NetPlus, is a fully traceable, 100 percent recycled plastic that’s made from discarded nets found in Chile and Argentina. The project benefits local fisherman by providing financial incentives and benefits our planet by repurposing 71,000 pounds of waste per year. Learn more about the initiative in Patagonia’s latest short film.

The main reason why I open this page is the title itself. It was really interesting to know about the way that Patagonia makes their recycled clothing. The interview video provided here was really interesting and the way they explain everything is really good Hemp CBD

the concept of recycled clothing is awesome. I wish there was a way to make my exterminator job environmentally friendly but i feel like thats impossible.

WNDR Alpine Drops New Algae-Based Vital 100 Backcountry Ski

Last winter, a new ski brand joined the fray with a special trick up their sleeve. WNDR Alpine was making high-performing, really fun backcountry skis using a totally new technology: algae-based composite cores. We got a chance to sit down with founder Matt Sterbenz (who you might remember being behind 4FRNT) last fall to learn about the technology in their original ski the Intention 110, and you can read more about that here. WNDR Alpine just released their second ski, the Vital 100, and
