News from Patagonia: An Earth-Conscious Decision

You may have heard that Patagonia has decided to move away from customization within the corporate goods space.

The decision from Patagonia comes from a place of love for the Earth, and a company-wide effort to reduce the amount of waste from textiles in landfills. 

In their official statement, Patagonia says their mission is to create products that last a really, really long time, if not forever. With the average job seeker staying in one role for just two years, or a bit over, that vest with a logo on it gets tossed in the landfill more quickly than other products which can be donated, passed down, or regifted.

“In 2018 alone, 11.3 million tons of textiles ended up in landfills, and we’re not okay being a part of that. Knowing how deeply you care about your colleagues, family and fellow humans, we don’t think you are either.”

As an eco-conscious brand, doing our best to work with companies who are doing their part to take care of the environment, we have the utmost respect for Patagonia’s decision. It’s now our job to make sure our clients have access to substitute products that are just as good, if not better, and recommend responsible branding.

For approved on-going programs, we’ll be able to help you source and gift Patagonia gear through the end of 2021. In the meantime, here are the brands we are excited to be adding to our offering.

Helly Hansen

Helly Hansen is a leader in both technical sailing and performance ski apparel. Its ski uniforms are worn and trusted by more than 50,000 professionals and can be found on Olympians, National Teams, and at more than 200 ski resorts and mountain guiding operations around the world. The first of their jackets and trousers were made from a coarse linen soaked in linseed oil. They’ve come a long way since those first linen garments, and now the brand is synonymous with pure luxury.

Marmot

Founded in Colorado in 1974, Marmot began when two UC Santa Cruz students living in Colorado wanted to make their own mountaineering equipment.

Fun Fact: The gear caught on after being worn in Clint Eastwood’s 1973 National Geographic documentary “Journey to the Outer Limits.”
