Paramo Recycling Scheme at ProAdventure

If you no longer need your Páramo, we'll take it back.

Páramo is always looking for the path of least environmental impact. The Páramo Recycling Scheme is our way of providing a safe route for disposal of unwanted garments. We'll take back any Páramo product (except underwear), and either find it a new home, or recycle it into new fabric. As a reward for your effort in getting old gear back to us, you can expect a generous discount on new Páramo products.

What we do with your gear

Repair and re-use...

It is always preferable to re-use before recycling, so if an old garment can be refurbished at reasonable cost, Páramo's expert workshop will do so. Repaired and refurbished items then make their way to appreciative new owners via Páramo's second-hand outlet.


If an item is beyond repair, it is stripped of any useful components and baled up ready for shipping to a specialist recycling facility. Páramo aims to use a chemical recycling process which, unlike traditional textile recycling, preserves the value and quality of the material. This ensures the material doesn't enter a spiral of"downcycling"which eventually ends up in landfill. Your old garment will become high quality fabric rather than cheap and disposable cushion filling.

Why recycle Polyester?

Up to £50 off your next purchase!

For maximum environmental benefit we need as many Páramo garments to be diverted from landfill as possible. That's why we're offering a reward for every old Páramo garment that we receive. If you return a garment labelled Nikwax Analogy, we'll give you a £50 discount on a new item worth more than £140 RRP. For any other Páramo garment you'll get a £10 discount on a new item worth more than £25 RRP.
