We know we rabbit on about Patagonia here at countryside.co.uk but there are few other outdoor brands with such heritage and who use their business so robustly to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis we face. Furthermore, this season Patagonia are continuing their efforts to build the best product and cause no unnecessary harm. To that end, all of their Better Sweater and men’s and women’s Synchilla Snap-T styles are Fair Trade Certified sewn.  What that means is every purchase sends more money back to factory workers who earn premiums that can be allocated as cash, used for collective social investment or both.  So, this Easter, if you’re on the hunt for something a bit more lasting than chocolate, crack on and get a new Patagonia fleece - you’ll feel a whole lot better inside!
