The Worn Wear initiative encourages customers to extend the lifetime of their garments.

Educating people on how to keep their outdoor gear in good condition for multiple seasons and teaching skills such as patching, re-waterproofing shells and fixing zippers.

Extending the life of our garments, through proper care and repair, is the single most important thing we can do to lower our impact on the planet and reduces the need to buy more over time — thereby avoiding the CO2 emissions, waste output, and water usage required to build it. By keeping our clothing in use just nine extra months, we can reduce related carbon, waste and water footprints by 20-30 percent each, according to the UK-based group WRAP – simply because we’re making and throwing away less. 

Patagonia’s Worn Wear programme was created in 2013 to encourage people to take good care of their gear, washing and repairing as needed. Worn Wear aims to keep clothing, regardless of brand, in circulation for as long as possible. When it’s time for a replacement, Patagonia wants people to invest in something that lasts.
