Patagonia uses Fair Trade Certified factories and sources a majority of its fabrics from sustainably produced raw materials. However, Patagonia has been selling to a range of larger markets lately (Urban Outfitters, U.S. Armed Forces, etc.), making us question its unrestrained growth and production scale impact.
“Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing—as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. These are silent sports. None require an engine; rarely do they deliver the cheers of a crowd. In each, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection with nature.”
