When Yvon Chouinard found out that his company had become a billion-dollar business, he didn’t take it as good news and instead wondered how to make Patagonia act like a small company again. Yvon constantly fights against the system of modern capitalism with the following company mission statement : “Patagonia is in business to save our home planet.”
Patagonia has recently embraced regenerative and organic grown cotton.
We started with 150 farmers in India, small-scale farmers. We talked them into growing cotton with a minimum amount of tilling. Even with cotton now, we’re sequestering carbon. This is a big deal.Yvon Chouinard
