Pre-Loved Podcast: Patagonia Worn Wear
Alright, let’s talk about today’s guest. Today we’re speaking with Alex Kremer, head of Patagonia’s secondhand arm, Worn Wear. Worn Wear products are better than new! Their goal is to keep Patagonia gear in use longer with mending and repairs, and reduce your need to buy more over time. You can also buy used and vintage Patagonia through Worn Wear. Alex launched Patagonia’s secondhand business, opened Patagonia’s first store dedicated to selling exclusively secondhand items, and created Patagonia’s first upcycled product line called ReCrafted, made from post-consumer waste.
We talked Worn Wear’s mission, mending -- the hundreds of thousands of repairs they’ve done in stores and on tour! -- cool stories behind well loved Patagonia, as well as practical tips extending the life of your pieces. All that and more! Let’s dive right in!
