Patagonia's Sustainable Partnership with Merchology
On Wednesday September 14th Patagonia’s founder, Yvon Chouinard, announced that his family was transferring ownership of the company into a new trust and nonprofit organization. This is an extremely bold move for the company and its leader but is perfectly in accordance with their core values. The new company ownership structure will allow the Patagonia brand to continue its mission of giving away its profits in a socially responsible and eco-friendly manner even after its founder is gone.
One of the core values we live by at Merchology is to Protect the Planet. We have proudly Partnered with Patagonia for years, in no small part because their core values align with ours. At Merchology we seek to manage our business in a way that protects the environment and preserves the earth’s natural resources. There is always a cleaner and greener way to do things, and we choose that route whenever possible across sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, and delivery.
Patagonia is a key brand partner in our drive for more sustainability in the promotional products industry. Our Patagonia collection has a wide range of products that we know help contribute to environmental efforts around the globe. It’s one part of our larger sustainability collection which features other brands pushing sustainability initiatives forward.
