Patagonia cares about the environment. That is nothing new. Yulex® wetsuits are therefore mostly made of natural rubber. Where there was no other option, recycled material was used and the production is Fair Trade certified. A wetsuit, that causes the least possible damage to the environment.
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."
