Patagonia Releases Environmentally Friendly Wetsuits

Our favorite clothing company, Patagonia, has released their new line of wetsuits:
"Patagonia wetsuits use the highest quality Japanese neoprene – made from 80% non-petroleum based ingredients – which has a 98% higher closed cell ratio than other neoprene.

We line the entire wetsuit with a merino wool grid, bonded to recycled polyester, to trap more insulative dead-air space and quickly wick moisture away from the skin. (Pat. Pending)"

Yvon Chouinard and his band of eco-ninjas have been pioneers from the start, using organic cotton and hemp fabrics for years, recycled soda bottles for their fleeces, founded 1% for the Planet, have solar panels on their Ventura headquarters, and even have a used underwear recycling program!

This isn't really a comment, but since I could find no contact information for you, I figured that this was the next best way of contact:

Hello! My name is Carly Cloud and I am with Reware Sustainable Products. Reware is a company that makes and sells products with the environment in mind. We're renewable energy consultants who started making products for the public who want to get involved in the ever-growing "green" movement. We're an American company based in Washington, D.C. and have been in business since 2004. I was curious if you would be interested in featuring our line on your site. The bags are up-and-coming and definitely worth a look.

The Reware line itself includes products that use solar power to make electricity in order to charge everyday devices. That being said, we have a growing line of bags, called Juice Bags, that use flexible, state-of-the-art solar panels and that will charge cell phones, iPods, and similar devices as quickly as if they were plugged into a wall. We also have a growing apparel line that uses sustainable materials, such as our line of organic cotton t-shirts. Our t-shirts use a patented printing process that is easy on the environment--no plastic inks or harmful dyes and the cotton is organically grown.

We have a new addition to our line--the solar powered beach bags.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your time,
Carly Cloud
