Recycled down

737x662_m-shirt-2-ccThis is an interesting development from Patagonia – recycled down being used in garments. This is part of their re-collection, which also includes products made from recycled wool and polyester.

Patagonia says:

“The cornerstone of the collection, Patagonia Recycled Down is a mix of 600-fill-power goose and duck down reclaimed from used items that can’t be resold, and offers identical performance benefits to virgin down. By plucking some of our down (and associated fabrics) from the trash, we reduce discards and help to grow and add value to the recycling stream”.
