Patagonia x eBay: Common Threads
As regular readers of this blog know, I believe one of the easiest ways to make a difference by going green is through used clothing. I have advocated shopping at thrift stores and second hand shops before and eBay is a virtual extension of this, except that it allows you to get the exact items you want!
Patagonia, which is a great outdoors company, striving to do good in the world, through use of sustainable farming of organic cotton in its products has teamed up with eBay to create a new program called Common Threads. The idea is to encourage people to buy used clothes and recycle their old ones, rather than wasting by buying new when used will do.
Here is the link to the webshop on eBay. If you are in need of Patagonia clothing, make this your first destination.
