DENVER, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Patagonia, Inc., a leading designer of core outdoor, surf and sport-related apparel, equipment, footwear and accessories, announced today the expansion of its Worn Wear™ used clothing program in eight stores.

Patagonia's retail locations in Portland, Seattle, Palo Alto, Reno, Austin, Chicago (Lincoln Park), Salt Lake City and Denver are now accepting used Patagonia shells, fleece, down and synthetic insulation, and ski and alpine pants for trade-in. Items must be clean and in good condition, and customers can earn trade-in credit valued at 50 percent of the price of the item when it is sold through the store's Common Threads Worn Wear section. Credit can be redeemed for purchases in store or online at patagonia.com. The company expects to accumulate enough pre-owned merchandise to open a Worn Wear used clothing section in the eight store locations during late September.

"We've had a tremendous response to our pilot program launched in Portland last fall, so we're thrilled to be expanding the Worn Wear program into more stores," notes Vickie Achee, Patagonia's head of retail marketing. "Our customers love knowing they can find their gear a second home while earning credit toward new or used products for themselves, all while doing their part to reuse, recycle and keep Patagonia gear out of the landfill."

Worn Wear is part of Patagonia's Common Threads Partnership with its customers to take mutual responsibility for the full life of Patagonia products to Reduce, Repair, Reuse and Recycle. Over 60,000 customers have taken the Common Threads Pledge by which customers agree to buy only what they need, repair what breaks, reuse and share what they no longer need and recycle the rest. Patagonia pledges to build useful things that last, repair what breaks and recycle items that customers return.

"By taking the Common Threads Pledge, our customers and our company together achieve the fifth 'R' in which we Reimagine a world where we take from it only what nature can replenish," says Rick Ridgeway, Patagonia's VP of Environmental Affairs.

Each participating Worn Wear retail location will host special in-store kick off events later this fall. Contact Patagonia Denver for more details or follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PatagoniaDenver.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
