AT UNDERGROUND SURF WE ALIGN OURSELVES WITH PROGRESSIVE AND ECOLOGICAL ORGANISATIONS, READ ON TO SEE HOW PATAGONIA IS LEADING THE WAY IN CREATING SOCIALLY & ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE CLOTHING
In 1994, Patagonia made the decision to take a stand against chemically intensive cotton and switch to organically grown cotton throughout their line.
SYNTHETIC MICROFIBER POLLUTION
Patagonia is taking the problem of microfibers shedding from synthetic materials seriously. They are committing significant resources to learn more about the scope of the problem and develop an understanding of what steps they can take to help create impactful solutions.
CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITYCorporate Responsibility (CR) is a broad-based movement in business that encourages companies to take responsibility for the impact of their activities on customers, employees, communities and the environment. Companies committed to corporate responsibility also agree to abide by international labor and human rights standards.
FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED™Every Fair Trade purchase sends more money back to factory workers who earn premiums that can be allocated as cash, used for a collective social investment or both.
TRACEABLE DOWN INSULATION
Since 2014 all of Patagonia down products, contain Traceable Down, all of which can be traced back to birds that were never force-fed and never live-plucked.
OUR BUSINESS AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Patagonia focuses on specific things they can do to reduce, neutralize, or even reverse the root causes of climate change. They believe in extending their mission to cause no unnecessary harm to every area where Patagonia has influence. That way, as Patagonia grows in size, their efforts to meet the challenge of their mission can be amplified exponentially.
Patagonia has been working diligently to develop a new wool supply chain that reflects high, and verifiable, standards for both animal welfare and land management.
