As a company, we have donated more than $80 million to these groups.

Putting their mouthpieces where their money has already gone, seems to me.

Charity has a twin called Vengeance.

Everyone who throws a couple of hundred dollars into a good cause should be recognized for their charity.

Everyone who has a few billion behind them and feels accordingly charitable should be recognized for their vengeance.

Trump is probably sighing, "I'm not remotely interested in what this guy thinks and cares about".

If the courts force him, great.

Chouinard is a guy who could just coast his way through the rest of his long life, head held high.

Instead he remains actively engaged in running his company and they remain actively involved in conservation efforts. Now this big push to fight for Bears Ears.

Tip of the hat to Master Chouinard.

More and bigger National Parks mean more $300 puffy jacket sales... follow the $$$. Yvon knows what he is doing.

Good point. Heís going to sell sooooo many more down jackets if bears ears and Grand Staircase escalante remain National monuments.

I like patagonias new ad campaign. It reminds potential consumers of the environmental costs attributed to his company's products. Yvon has led the way in producing synthetic oil based clothing that has made him a billionaire. And also led to some serious environmental damage.

It's good to see him chiding the president for his unethical assault against nature. Certainly HE would never do such things in persuit of his riches...

Oh come on, calling Chouinard a hypocrite for consistently going above and beyond to produce a product line delivering the best possible performance with a reduced ecological footprint is nonsense and you know.
Shame on you.

Letís see....Trump is a lot bigger but YC is in better shape and has excellent coordination. So my take is that YC circles the ring avoiding Trumpís desperate roundhouse lunges until Yvon finishes off the exhausted narcissist with some deft straight punches.

Chouinard has done more than almost anyone in the outdoor industry to protect and preserve public lands both at home and abroad. I have the utmost respect for both his climbing and his ethics towards the environment.

Thanks Yvon!

If everyone that hates on Chouinard for at least stepping up to protect the lands the haters use, they should harbor a cause and try to lead the way, put as much money into it and try to save the lands as Chouinard tries to do. I guess none of the dissers own one piece of Patagonia? I commend him for at least standing up for what he believes in. Isn't it a bit hypocritical to say you love our public lands and national parks and then critcize one for trying to protect them?

Ron, I think dour envy of Chouinard is a smoke screen for the real issue with the critics: contempt for Patagonia customers.

Have bought Patagonia since the 70's, mostly good stuff(the products I've bought) and they back it up if yer not satisfied. I have no problem with a person or company making tons of money through hard work and solid products...isn't that you get in business ownership for? Hope Yvon, other companies and orgs continue to stand up for their beliefs. I'd buy Patagonia before I'd buy Trump products.
