Patagonia

The mission statement of Patagonia reads: ‘Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.’ With a mission like that, you have to be interested, no? Patagonia makes tools and apparel for silent sports, they say. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In the words of Patagonia: reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature. The founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard, is also the author of “Let My People Go Surfing” a book about the life of Yvon but most of all about an entrepreneur who brought doing good to the heart of his business. We’re at HAVEN surf are big fans of Patagonia. We dig a great story, believe in and support their mission and are always on the lookout for durable, beautiful products. You gotta love them!
