Patagonia BLACK HOLE™ Luggage

No longer must you choose between a tough-as-nails gear- hauler and a bag that reduces the amount of waste being thrown into the landfills. Every Black Hole® duffel, bag and tote now uses 100% recycled materials for the body fabric, lining and webbing of the most durable travel companions—cutting CO2 emissions over the entire Black Hole collection by 50% and reducing our overall use of virgin fabric.

The classic Patagonia Better Sweater just got better. The only part of the Patagonia Better Sweater that isn’t made from recycled materials? The zipper teeth. (They’re on it.) The rest just keeps getting better for the environment while the sweater remains as soft, warm and durable as it has ever been.

Being first is an arduous endeavour, but someone has to do it. That’s why Patagonia decided to make all their waterproof jackets with recycled materials and obsessively test them to ensure they weren’t compromising their standards for durability or wet-weather performance. And now they partnered and launched Fair Trade programs in every factory that sews these shells, supporting the people behind the product.

Shell, Yeah!

Introducing Storm’s new easily recyclable aluminium ULTIMATE RANGE. Using plastic-free packaging, this aluminium bottle range offers outdoor enthusiasts premium look and feel products - that are not only great for their outdoor gear, but also better for the environment! A huge 91% of discarded plastic isn’t recycled and it has been predicted that by mid-century, the oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish, ton for ton. With aluminium packaging having a higher recycle rate than plastic, we hope that these new aluminium bottles offer an easily recyclable option that will help to reduce the amount of disposable plastic waste going into landfill or ending up in the ocean.
