Fracking may very well be happening near you, visit Earthjustice’s fracking map to learn more.

We at Patagonia are increasingly concerned about hydraulic fracturing, a water and chemical-intensive method used to extract trapped natural gas deposits. Fracking impacts water, air, soil, wildlife habitat, and human health. One fracking well uses an average of 2 million to 8 million gallons of water; one to two percent of that total are various chemicals. Many fracking fluids and chemicals are known toxins for humans and wildlife, and the water used is contaminated.

Because of fracking’s wide-ranging risks and impacts, we support each community’s right to educate itself and regulate and/or ban fracking to protect its water, air, soil, and local ecosystems. We also support local, state and federal government efforts to monitor and regulate fracking.
