Plastic bottles recycled: Learn More
As the outdoor industry leader in fabric development, Patagonia has always invested significantly in the research and engineering of new fabrics.
Patagonia continuously develops new ways to reduce its environmental impact as a company while still making the best possible product. These efforts include making products with REPREVE.
REPREVE is the recycled ingredient in a wide range of Patagonia products, including those made with Polartec® performance fabrics. REPREVE polyester has the same quality and integrity as non-recycled polyester.
By using REPREVE, Patagonia can offer recycled polyester in many products, including Capilene® 3 and 4 baselayers, Tropic Comfort shirts, and a wide range of fleece items. One of our favorites is the R1®. It's made from Polartec® performance fabric that contains REPREVE 100. REPREVE 100 is made entirely from plastic bottles.
