Patagonia’s ‘Worn Wear Tour’ has finally arrived in the UK where they’re about to embark on the worthwile mission of  urging customers to make their clothing last a lifetime regardless of brand. Patagonia will be setting up temporary repair shops around the UK where you can get knackered zips, ripped knees, torn cuffs, missing buttons and all other clothing related damage repaired for FREE. Thereby reducing the need to buy more clothes and thus reducing CO2 emissions, water usage and lots of un-necessary waste. Though to be honest this could backfire in my case as mentally I’m already calculating if the amount of money I’ll save get my jeans patched for free will amount to a new Torrentshell jacket. I need help don’t I?


The Tour kicks off simultaneously in both the UK and Germany today and ends in France, Italy and the Netherlands stopping at a myriad of locations such as retail locations, sport events, farmers’ markets and universities listed below:
