I must admit I’m a big fan of Patagonia’s Worn Wear commitment to repairing my snow gear. It’s certainly saved me buying new gear, when a repair job will keep my gear in perfect condition for years to come. If your gear is Patagonia, the repair is free. GORE-TEX® is repaired by specialists at no extra cost. Brilliant!
In an era of fast fashion, the idea of repairing your gear is now seen as a radical act. Clothing production creates more CO2 emissions, waste output and water usage to produce more gear, so lowering our consumption helps the planet. Patagonia’s Worn Wear program will even repair other brands for a small fee. Good one Patagonia!
