From the Patagonia website (

Way too much of what is made these days ends up in the trash at the end of its useful life. At Patagonia, we're working to change that.

In 2005 we launched our Common Threads Garment Recycling Program, through which customers could return their worn out Capilene® Performance Baselayers to us for recycling. We've now added Patagonia fleece, Polartec® fleece from other manufacturers and Patagonia organic cotton T-shirts to our list of recyclables.

Our long-term goal is to take environmental responsibility for everything we make. Please help us by changing your clothes for good.

Does the petroleum used to transport it to Japan and back take away the benefit? Why can't we do it here it the states?
