[image-1]Not only does Patagonia sell the quintessential collegiate patterned pullovers we all know and love, the company is also uber eco savvy. Their Worn Wear program promotes a “If it’s broken, fix it!” mantra, encouraging Patagonia buyers to repair their apparel before throwing it out.
The Worn Wear College Tour brings a mobile repair shop to campuses across the country. Students can have their gear repaired in the funky custom van or they can learn how to fix the rips and tears themselves. Nonprofits like Lowcountry Street Grocery will make an appearance, as well as the CofC composting program and reps from urban gardens and bike share programs.
The Worn Wear Wagon will be parked at Randolph Hall from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16. Check out the Facebook page for more details about the day’s event.
