Patagonia helped found the Advanced Global Traceable Down Standard (Global TDS), which is certified by NSF International. It follows the same ethos as RDS in the Five Freedoms of animal welfare (freedom from hunger and thirst; from discomfort; from pain, injury or disease; to express normal behaviour; and from fear and distress) but is even stricter as it requires mandatory parent farm certification even if the down is not harvested there. Global TDS down is traceable back to source via Track My Down.

By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
