Yerdle is partnering with Patagonia to get your Patagonia items back in play. You know that Patagonia items are too good to sit unused in your closet when they could be out on the trail. That’s where they’re meant to be. So join with Patagonia in pioneering the movement for re-use.

While some companies want you to buy more and more of their single-use products, Patagonia has taken a decidedly different approach. Every Patagonia item is made to last. You can feel the quality. But sometimes your needs change, or your child grows to a new size, and you find yourself in possession of a piece of gear that you haven’t worn for awhile. Put that item directly into the hands of someone who will cherish it and you’ll get a discount on your next Patagonia purchase.

According to the EPA, Americans send over 14 million pounds of textiles to the landfill each year. Many of those items are perfectly usable. An even greater number of items sit unused in closets, garages and storage units. The mission of Yerdle is to help everyone reduce the number of new things we all have to buy by 25%.

The earth simply can’t support a consumer culture that encourages people to buy low-quality items, produced under deplorable labor conditions, shipped halfway around the world, and then thrown away or piled into a storage unit after a brief active use. Instead you can live by the mantra, fewer, better things. Yerdle allows you to quickly move underutilized items out of your home and into the hands of someone who wants them.
