At Patagonia, we appreciate that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. We’re using the resources we have - our company, our investments, our voice and our imagination - to do something about it.
Patagonia grew out of a small company that made equipment for climbers. Today Alpinism remains at the core of a global company that still manufactures clothing for climbing, but also for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. All these sports are silent, none need an engine, none gives you a rapturous round of applause. Everyone rewards you in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between people and nature.
With the climate crisis worsening, we fear that at some point we will no longer be able to experience these natural moments. That is why we fight for them. We donate our time, our work and at least 1% of our sales to help hundreds of environmental organisations around the world stay vigilant and protect the irreplaceable.
