Surfdome and Patagonia ride the wave of plastic-free packaging

The new partnership will see the removal of plastic polybags from clothes orders in a bid to decrease lifecycle carbon dioxide emissions and pollution

Online sports retailer Surfdome has announced a partnership with outdoor clothing firm Patagonia to trial the removal of plastic polybags from clothes orders.

The companies aim to tackle plastic pollution and decrease lifecycle carbon emissions associated with their business models.

During the three-month trial, called Plastic Cutback, all Patagonia products sold on the Surfdome retail site will have the polybags removed 'at the very final moment' before the products are shipped to customers.
