Patagonia’s Black Hole Bags Are Made From 10-Million Plastic Bottles

When it comes to sustainable practices, Patagonia is one of the industry’s pioneering acts. They’ve made a conscious effort to reduce waste throughout the entirety of the manufacturing process, while also fighting for a reevaluation of the apparel world’s wastefulness, as a whole. Now, the company is taking yet another drastic step toward the future with the Recycled Black Hole Bag Collection — a series of packs that boast 100% upcycled materials.

It’s not the first time that the company has made headlines with its innovative principles. From the dismissal of dominant Wall Street companies due to abject ecological practices to being named as one of the most transparent manufacturers in the world, Patagonia’s insatiable thirst for change has been a driving force behind its ethos, resulting in the industry’s widespread adoration. To further their influence, the American clothing proprietor has created a bespoke lineup of 25 weather-resistant, TPU-lined bags, produced from over ten million recycled bottles. A handful of the company’s renowned bag styles — including duffle, waist, tote, and back — are outfitted with durable recycled ripstop, 100-percent-recycled body fabric and webbing, and a DWR finish that’ll keep your goods safe from inclement weather. The collection is available via Patagonia’s website for $29+.
