Patagonia Continues Rolling Out PCR Apparel


Over the years we’ve praised Patagonia for their hemp and recycled polyester pants, their organic cotton T-shirts, (both plain and stylish womens), their foray into eco-footwear. For their recycled polyester winter climbing jackets and closed loop recycled underwear program. And even more recently for their solarised car park. So it’s hardly suprising to find that they’ve quietly expanded the array of woven recycled polyester clothing on offer. For example, you get Minimalist Board Shorts ($55 USD), or the Womens All-Around Down Jacket ($178), Kid's 3-in-1 Infurno Jacket ($168). Not forgetting the Breezeway Jacket ($110) or the Eco Torrentshell ($185). They call the fabric PCR for Post Consumer Recycled. Patagonia pioneered the idea with their fleece jackets well over a decade ago, and it's great to see them still persisting with the concept, when most of their competitors have moved onto the next fad.
