I posted this photo on Twitter via my Instagram account last week. I took it at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. The poster adorned one entrance to Patagonia's exhibition booth. I later learned that Patagonia supports Tim DeChristopher from much more than an ethical standpoint. They are backing him financially, too. Check out this blog post for the scoop on who Tim DeChristopher is, what he did, how he’s being punished, and how Patagonia has stepped up in his defense.
Patagonia makes my heart soar, you know. It’s a major company that’s not afraid to support edgy environmentalism. Thank you, Patagonia (Meghan M. Hicks photo credit).
