At American clothing company Patagonia, environmental protection has been a tradition since the company was founded in 1973. "Our first and greatest interest is in the wellbeing of our planet. We are all humans, who wish to experience unspoiled nature. Protecting these areas is much more important than any business. How does the saying go? Nobody can do business on a dead planet," said Ryan Gellert, general manager of Patagonia.
Patagonia calls for a rethink, not only in the sense of nature, but also in the value chain in the industry, in accordance with the motto 'reduce, recycle, repair, resell'. Through the sustainability project 'Worn Wear' the Californian company also encourages the repair of damaged functional clothing, instead of a new purchase.
