At Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. Patagonia grew out of a small company in California that were looking to make good quality clothes for climbers, ones that were durable and high performance. Alpinism remains at the heart of the business and the research and development that goes into finding the most durable and environmentally friendly products is applied to all gear the brand makes, for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. These are the silent sports that don't require an engine, and rarely deliver the cheers of a crowd, but reward in the form or hard-won grace and moments of connection with nature. Patagonia's core values are to make the best products in terms of function, repairability and durability. Patagonia seeks not only to do less harm in their business, but do more good, and use their business to protect nature. In their action to dontate 1% to the planet, they have donated over $89 million in cash and in-kind donations to domestic and internatuonal grassroots envuronmental groups making a difference in their local communities, since 1985. They donate their time, services and at least 1% of our sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide. Staying true to our core values during thirty-plus years in business has helped us create a company we're proud to run and work for. For more information about Patagonia and their business see here.
