Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Call It a Climate Crisis

Half the carbon emitted by burning fossil fuels was released in the past three decades. Releasing carbon dioxide into the air traps heat in the atmosphere, contributing to climate change.

The Industry Is a Waste, And It’s Getting Worse.

Buy. Use. Throw away. Buy more. Fast, disposable fashion is wasteful by design. Consumers buy 60% more items of clothing and keep them for about half as long as they did 15 years ago.*

*According to a 2016 report by McKinsey & Company that looked at consumer spending and clothing production from 2000 to 2014.

16.2 Million

The number of tons of textile waste the US generated in 2014, compared to 9.4 million in 2000.

The clothing industry contributes up to 10% of the pollution driving the climate crisis.

Apparel workers are among the lowest-paid laborers in the world.

The Greenwashing Problem

The world’s largest clothing brands hide dirty, irresponsible practices and misuse words like “sustainable,” “green” and “conscious.”

Cut-rate prices, overconsumption and a culture of convenience

Lead to…

pollution, labor abuses and waste.

Together, We Can Change How Clothes Are Made

  • We’re Recycling Our Way to Lower Emissions

    This season, 68% of our fabrics are made with recycled materials. By using recycled content, in one year Patagonia has cut emissions by 20,000 tons of CO₂e, enough to power 2,300 homes for a full year.

  • We Grow Our Cotton Organically

    Since 1996, all of the virgin cotton in our line has been grown organically, without the use of harmful chemicals (and we make clothes with recycled cotton, too). By using organic cotton, we save water and reduce CO₂ emissions by 45% compared to conventional cotton.

  • We’re Changing How We Grow Food and Fiber

    We are investing in and testing ways to improve soil health and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere through Regenerative Organic practices.
