Free repair campaign The Worn Wear Repair Tour was in Andermatt

March 12, 2024

With the Worn Wear Repair Tour, Patagonia is extending the life of outdoor clothing of every brand. The Tiny House travels across Europe to repair broken zips, tears and holes free of charge. Because the longer something is worn, the more sustainable it is. The Tiny House made another stop in Andermatt at the weekend.

On 9 and 10 March, Patagonia's Tiny House was set up in the car park of the Gemsstock cable car in Andermatt as part of the Worn Wear Repair Tour. The company contributes to climate and environmental protection by mending garments of all brands free of charge. Because the less that is thrown away, the less that needs to be produced. This saves resources.

Great interest

In the cosy interior of the little house with its wood-burning stove, a tailor carried out over 60 repairs. At the stand outside, material was also handed out that could be used to repair clothes yourself. This extended the life of numerous favourite items. Interested people simply stopped by for a chat, warm drinks were offered at the stand and donations were collected for the NGO Protect Our Winters Switzerland , which campaigns for climate protection.

Andermatt Responsible

Andermatt Responsible supported the visit of the Worn Wear Repair Tour. With the Andermatt Responsible initiative, the Andermatt Swiss Alps Group and Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG are promoting climate-friendly and sustainable tourism in the region. The aim of the initiative is to enable resource-conserving tourism operations.
