Patagonia Lightweight Travel Tote Pack 22L

Summer is quickly approaching, which means a fresh rollout of new apparel and accessory items meant to help people take full advantage of outdoor activities and exciting new travel destinations. But seasonal fashion also results in an excessive amount of waste, with more than 15 million tons of used textile waste generated each year in the United States alone. That means approximately 80 pounds of used fashion being thrown away per person per year, with only 15 percent of consumer-used clothing being recycled…even though nearly 100% of textiles are recyclable. Trailblazers for the greater good and outspoken champions of the planet, Patagonia makes high-quality, highly functional outdoor apparel and gear that’s meant to last. Their versatile Lightweight Travel Tote Pack is exceedingly useful for any outing or season. Able to be carried by hand, over the shoulder or as a backpack, the main compartment offers a large zipper opening for easy access with built-in water-bottle pockets. Made from strong, featherweight fabric that stuffs away into its own pocket for easy storage, this pack is perfect for world travel or just traveling to the market. And on the occasion that something tears, rips or gets worn down, Patagonia will repair it for you via their Worn Wear program—that means less stuff being produced and ending up in landfills. Patagonia promote fair labor practices, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout their entire supply chain.
