This 100% recycled tank is made from 4.8 plastic bottles and .26 pounds of fabric scrap, it saves 63 gallons of water compared to a conventional cotton tank.
Those who say fish can’t fly probably say they can’t hunt, either. Patagonia know better. The Flying Fish Responsibili-Tee® Tank is made from a comfortable 50/50 blend of recycled cotton/postconsumer recycled polyester fabric that reduces their need for petroleum to make raw materials and cuts landfill and incinerator waste. The tank-top silhouette and low-profile seams at the arms and neck allow for chafe-free comfort and freedom of movement whether outdoors or at the climbing gym on a rainy day. Artwork by Geoff McFetridge is screen-printed using PVC- and phthalate-free inks.
