Patagonia is a designer of outdoor clothing and gear for a variety of pursuits, including climbing, surfing, skiing and snowboarding, fly fishing and trail running. Their core values are simple: their criteria for the creating the best product rests on function, repairability, and especially durability. Patagonia products are built to last for generations or can be recycled so the materials in them remain in use. Making the best product matters for saving the planet.
In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, was instrumental in creating 1% for the Planet: a commitment to give 1% of total sales to trusted and effective environmental, not-for-profit organisations, which is now a global movement that we're very proud to support.
