Trail & Ski's Support for Patagonia Strengthens

Share Article

Recent efforts show Patagonia's commitment to producing merchandise in an environmentally friendly way.

Trail & Ski has always been a large supporter of Patagonia, but recently their support has begun to strengthen. This is in large part due to Patagonia’s recent efforts to produce in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

The majority of Patagonia’s clothing is made using BlueSign fabrics. BlueSign fabrics offer the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials that conserve resources and minimize the impact on people and the environment.

Patagonia’s Common Threads Partnership works with customers to reduce consumption, repair what can be fixed and recycle what is worn out. Patagonia is also a member of 1% For The Planet. They pledge at least 1 percent (455 million to date) to the preservation and restoration of the natural world.

In addition, Patagonia belongs to Fair Trade USA. Fair Trade enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, works, consumers, industry and the earth.
