Patagonia pledges 1% of sales annually to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. Since 1985 that has totalled over $78 million in cash and kind to small, grassroots environmental groups all over the world.
In November 2016, we asked you to donate alongside us to help fund six Australian key environmental projects. The Double Down has surpassed its fundraising goal: thanks to all the donations and our matching grants all the projects reached beyond their initial targets and raised the combined sum of $125,289. This will go a long way for these environmental groups to help raise awareness and address important environmental issues.
We give 1% of our sales to support environmental organisations around the world, funding at the grassroots level in countries and communities where we have people on the ground.
For our 50th year, we’re looking forward, not back, to life on Earth. Together, we can prioritise purpose over profit and protect this wondrous planet, our only home.
