Visit Your Patagonia Store & Help Us Spend Money for Good

Posted Oct 27 2012 2:08am

With so

many environmental groups out there doing great work, it’s impossible to make a

donation to every one. We recognize there’s only so much each of us

can donate toward environmental causes, and we also know our customers are the

experts when it comes to what’s going on in their backyard. That’s why we

created the Voice Your Choice? campaign.

Voice Your Choice? enables customers of Patagonia-owned

stores to become more involved in local environmental issues by providing

education, volunteer opportunities, and grant money

that our customers tell us how to spend.

Here’s how it works: After a great deal of research and local input, each

Patagonia-owned store selects three local groups they’ve determined are doing

something extraordinary to help restore and protect the environment. Representatives

from each of these groups will visit the store during the Voice Your Choice? campaign to share their work and offer you opportunities to get involved.

Additionally, each of our stores has $5000 in grant money

available for distribution. It’s up to you to decide how that money is spent.

Votes are cast in the store, and the top vote-getter will be awarded $2,500,

with the second- and third-place organizations receiving $1,500 and $1,000

respectively.

Simply stop by your nearest Patagonia

store September 24-October 24, 2009 to learn about your local groups and vote.

No purchase whatsoever is necessary, but ballots must be cast in the store.(Make the jump for additional details and a complete list of last years Voice Your Choice? winners.)
