Worn Wear is Patagonia's hub for keeping gear in play.
Why extend the life of gear? Because the best thing we can do for the planet is get more use out of stuff we already own, cutting down on consumption.
Join us to repair, share and recycle your gear.
One of the most responsible things we can do as a company is make high-quality stuff that lasts for years, so you don't have to buy more of it.
Keeping clothing in use just nine extra months can reduce the related carbon, water and waste footprints by 20-30%. (WRAP, 2012)

I was working at the Patagonia SoHo store about ten years ago and a customer came in and dropped off this shirt — he said it had been in his closet for thirty years and he didn't need it anymore. I saw it as a blank canvas. The idea with painting on clothing is that it can be preserved & appreciated longer by turning it into a piece of artwork."Read MoreShare Your Story
