Go Green Resources
In 2012, according to the EPA, Americans generated over 251 million TONS of trash and only recycled/ composted 87 million tons. This is equivalent to only a 34.5% recycling rate. About 8.7% of trash was rubber, leather, and textiles. EverestGear hopes to eliminate this excess in waste one garment at a time. So take the pledge and recycle your old Patagonia garments.
You may also notice that when you receive your packages from EverestGear they might be in a recently enjoyed box. Instead of throwing out all of these perfectly good boxes we reuse what we can in a hope to help reduce the amount of waste in landfills. Therefore, as our customers, we challenge you to reduce, reuse, and recycle and feel free to reuse the box we send you to ship gifts to loved ones, create DIY crafts, or cut it up for a compost pile.
