This holiday season, we want to encourage you to give. To give purpose, kindness, joy and much more to your families, friends and local communities.
Gearhead Outfitters is committed to providing you with great brands that take giving back seriously. Whether through environmental sustainability, corporate responsibility, giving back through jobs, or creating their own non-profits, we are proud to carry brands who practice philanthropy everyday.
This week, our brand highlight is Patagonia. There are so many great things we could say about this amazing company, as they are on the front lines of keeping our environment safe, but one of our favorite things is their commitment to excellent, consumer-safe products.
Patagonia utilizes reclaimed and recycled materials everyday that are safer for their consumers and better for the environment. Organic cotton, hemp, recycled wool and even polyester made from recycled plastic bottles, are just a few of the materials Patagonia uses for their apparel.
They have also worked with bluesign® technologies for more than 15 years. Bluesign® technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials and products that are safe for the environment, workers and consumers. Any fabric that is bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in its manufacturing that conserve resources and minimizes impact on people and the environment.*
Patagonia has always been at the forefront of environmental and social awareness and responsibility and we are proud to be the only authorized Patagonia dealer in Northeast Arkansas at our three Jonesboro locations. You can also find Patagonia at any of our other nine locations in Arkansas and Louisiana.
