That’s right. Patagonia wants ’em. The company has launched the Common Threads Recycling Program to expand recycling from aluminum cans and newspapers to your underwear. And by underwear they mean any Capilene base layers, any Patagonia cotton tee shirts, and any Polartec-branded garments. It doesn’t matter which company made it, as long as it’s Polartec. Patagonia’s goal is to become the first global company in the world to recycle competitors’ garments in order to lower the environmental impact of making fleeces and polyester clothes from virgin materials. Help them get there. Drop off your stuff at their San Francisco store at 770 North Pt. or their Santa Cruz outlet store at 415 River St., Suite C.
