This webseries, called “Waste?” was sponsored by Patagonia. The series features people redefining waste; from canners scouring the streets for redeemables, to engineers powering their breweries with wastewater, to architects construction homes out of tires.

Patagonia is furthering their mission to redefine waste through their Common Thread Garment Recycling Program. Customers can bring back their old and worn Patagonia clothes by dropping them off in the “Drop Your Drawers” box at any Patagonia store. These garments are broken down and transformed into new clothes. The company’s goal is to make all of their garments recyclable.
