I apologize for not posting yesterday, as I was sick in bed (I couldn’t even greet trick-or-treaters…). I offer today a post that was featured on Ecopressed about Patagonia’s efforts to be (w)holistically sustainable and transparent in its business. Please Don’t Buy our Products if You Don’t Need Them is from Kosmos 9. An excerpt:

Outdoor clothing brand Patagonia‘s mission is to “build the best and cause no unnecessary harm”.

With the footprint chronicles they have introduced an outstanding level of transparency of their products. It allows you to “track the impact of a specific product from design through delivery”. Try it out here. It takes into account energy consumption, distance traveled and CO2 emissions, as well as waste generated and water consumed. You also get information on the factory were the product was produced. That is when you can start shopping with a conscience.
