Patagonia proudly states they are 'in business to save our home planet, and have donated 1 percent of revenue to the conservation of the natural world for over 35 years.
Founder, Yvon Chouinard, has gone even futher co-founding the movement "1 percent for the planet" so that other businesses could join Patagonia's commitment - which has amounted to $89 million, donated to national and international activist conservation organisations.
To show our gratitude and respect towards Patagonia’s mission, we bring you Yvon Chouinard’s top 5 quotes about making a change!
“The more you know, the less you need.”
“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.”
“Real adventure is defined best as a journey from which you may not come back alive, and certainly not as the same person”
“At Patagonia, making a profit is not the goal because the Zen master would say profits happen when you do everything else right”
“Because the world is changing, we can never assume that the way we have done things in the past is adequate for the future.”
