Patagonia has taken a long pile fleece fabric made from 100 % recycled polyester and turned it into the Lot Gatos 1/4 Sweater, which will keep you nice and warm on fresh days and cool nights. It has a fluffy outside and a soft fleece inside that can be worn directly on the skin or over underwear.
Because Patagonia always wants to minimise its ecological footprint, they dye the 100 % recycled fleece using an environmentally friendly process that significantly reduces water, energy and chemical consumption compared to conventional methods.
Since 1985, Patagonia has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. 1% for the Planet is an alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.
Patagonia's mission statement is to "build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis." Clear as day! They work hard to produce innovative, high-quality, simple and utile apparel that help explorers and outdoor enthusiasts achieve their dreams.
