A no brainer £50 off Paramo with their recycle offer. High Avalanche risk in Lochaber. Be careful.

I bought the very early Paramo many years ago and only heard of this offer recently that if you recycle an old paramo through Paramo or a retailer and buy another Paramo item you will get £50 off.

My old Paramo jacket on Beinn Eighe over 12 years of wear,

I have also used my Paramo trousers for many years and they were so hard wearing and great value over the years. I recycled them and got £50 off a new pair. I have just done the same with my jacket I bought in 2008 it served me well.

If you no longer need your Paramo, its worn out they will take it back! Páramo is always looking for the path of least environmental impact. The Páramo Recycling Scheme is a way of providing a safe route for disposal of unwanted garments. Páramo will take back any 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 Paramo, if you bring your unwanted garment and buy a new Paramo we will give you £50 off your new jacket (excludes all offers/sale items).

To me it’s a great way of saving money and recycling !

I am hoping to get back on the hill soon. It’s been a long winter but chest is improving.

At least my bottle of gin got drunk at the CIC hut on Ben Nevis on the winter International climbing meet. Thanks to the custodian Robin Clothier . He used it to make some mulled wine.
