Better Than New : The Worn Wear tour By Patagonia

Let’s all become radical environmentalists .

We all have our favourite pieces of well worn gear. They accumulate character and meaning and, over time, become far greater than the sum of their threads. Keeping these things in use for longer brings us happiness and our planet good health. To help you keep your clothing in use for longer Patagonia are taking their Patagonia Worn Wear repair team on the road. The tour will take in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands and Spain from April to May 2016 on a 50-stop, five-week adventure. The Worn Wear team will be doing free clothing repairs and teaching you how to fix your gear. All you need to do is bring us your clothing that’s in need of a fix. You can also make use of our tools, supplies and expertise to fix broken gear yourself.

"A little harm you will always give to nature, but if you keep your garments longer the impact gets smaller."

From Munich, Germany, Worn Wear seamstress Barbara Heinze explains why extending the life of our garments is the single most important thing we can do to lower our impact on the Planet
