Plastic baggies are a gear staple in any outdoor person’s kit — they are infinitely useful for holding snacks, protecting your phone, or storing dirty laundry. But they also pretty bad for the environment. To help us cut down on our use of plastics, Patagonia partnered with Bee’s Wraps to introduce a sustainable alternative to plastic wrap and baggies.

In their latest quest to transform the food chain into something more sustainable, Patagonia Provisions teamed up with Portland-based Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) to create an organic beer made from old school grains. Long Root Ale uses Kernza — a perennial grain ideally suited for organic regenerative agriculture, a practice that restores soil biodiversity, sequesters carbon and grows crops all without chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Last week, Patagonia Provisions added Organic Fruit + Almond Bars in three flavors to its line of food products. The fruit bars, a pure and simple food, contain just organic fruit, seeds, nuts, and juice, providing natural energy and the nutritional benefits of chia and baobab.
A few years ago, Patagonia started Patagonia Provisions with an aim beyond just selling good food, but also that of reforming various supply chains in the process. The initial product was Wild Salmon Jerky (now rebranded as Wild Sockeye Salmon) that comes only from abundant, sustainable runs in the North Pacific and harvested in specific migration routes to avoid harming less abundant species. The latest product out of the Provisions group is Tsampa Soup, a hearty, organic, dried soup mix you can eat at home or on the trail.
