Give a little back to the earth and the creatures who dwell on it with the purchase of this shirt
Usher in the return of the anadromous survivor to its rightful rivers and streams with the World Trout® Steelhead T-Shirt. Bold artwork from Glenn Ness is screen-printed onto a long-staple, organic cotton T-shirt using PVC- and phthalate-free inks. Fabric is ringspun for softness and durability. Taped shoulder seams provide excellent fit retention and comfort under a vest. Five dollars from the full-price sale of this tee goes to benefit The World Trout Initiative (patagonia.com/worldtrout).
In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.
The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.
