Customers can mail-in used Patagonia clothing in exchange for purchase credit.
This is part of the brand’s program to cut down on the amount of clothing ending up in landfill. Eligible clothing must function perfectly and be in good condition - complete with garment tags and in working condition. Items can be mailed in using a prepaid label. In exchange for accepted apparel, customers will receive credit that can be used to purchase items at Patagonia retail stores and on the company’s website.
Patagonia launched the program in 2017, repairing, recycling and upcycling used clothing. Previously, customers were required to bring clothing to any Patagonia retail location to participate and receive a credit. The new mail-in trade option comes as part of Patagonia’s effort to make sustainable practices as accessible to its customers as possible.
Patagonia aims at reducing the environmental impact of its company and supply chain and supporting regenerative practices in ranching and agriculture and envisioning a new approach to business. The brand is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, defending clean water and air, and divesting from dirty technologies. Patagonia donates time, services and at least one per cent of its sales to grassroots environmental groups all over the world.
