Outdoor apparel specialist Patagonia is set to launch The Worn Wear Mobile Tour, a cross-country mission to extend the life of our everyday garments. The net result: reduce overall consumption and lower our impact on the planet. As part of the tour, staff members from Patagonia’s repair facility in Reno, Nev., will be on hand to fix rips, tears, missing buttons and busted zippers, all free of charge. The traveling tour will commence on the Worn Wear Wagon, a one-of-a-kind custom vehicle created by artist/surfer Jay Nelson. It has a solar-powered camper shell made from redwood that’s been salvaged from wine barrels, mounted on a ’91 Dodge Cummins fueled by biodiesel. The mobile repair shop will be open to anyone who brings in a garment, regardless of brand. The tour kicks off April 2nd in Ventura, Calif., and ends May 12 in Boston.
