Patagonia's New Site Connects You To Local Causes That Need Your Help

By Aimee Lutkin

Patagonia is a company that makes every effort to source their materials sustainably and account for every step of their production process. Their values are reflected in what they do with their profit margin. For example, one former CEO donated one million acres of land to the Chilean government, the largest land donation in history.

Then in late 2017, the company announced they were suing the Trump administration for their decision to rescind protections for 85 percent of Bears Ears National Monument and almost half of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, putting it at risk for destruction.

Now, Patagonia is pushing even further into the realm of activism, revealing their new platform that connects activists to environmental causes. Patagonia Action Works promises to connect people to events, petitions, and organizations near to them so that they can easily get involved with groups vetted by the company.
