Patagonia has partnered with eco-friendly biomaterial firm Yulex to create the first plant based wetsuit. The natural rubber is made from the guayule plant and uses water as a solvent where "traditional rubber plants and synthetic rubber production both use environmentally harmful solvents and create a vast amount of non-biodegradable byproducts". They're now sharing their findings with all other major wetsuit producers in the hopes of having a larger environmental impact for the better.
