VENTURA, Calif. (Oct. 15, 2014) – Patagonia today announced a $13 million tax equity investment in solar power for Hawai‘i – joining with local solar finance company Kina‘ole Capital Partners, LLC to create a new fund that will purchase more than 1,000 rooftop solar energy systems in Hawai‘i, where homeowners currently pay three times the U.S. average price for electricity.
Patagonia today announced the addition of Corey Simpson to its Ventura-based public relations team as PR & Communications Coordinator. In this role, Corey will work closely with Adam Fetcher and Jess Clayton to engage with a wide range of media about Patagonia's key product, environmental and brand stories. Corey brings to the role a deep knowledge of Patagonia, its products and its culture – having worked in the company’s Learning & Development Department for several years. His face will likely be familiar to much of the outdoor industry media, as Corey has also been supporting the PR team with line showings at the Outdoor Retailer trade show for the past two seasons. Corey has a BA in Communications from UC Santa Barbara and is an avid outrigger paddler, skier and runner. He can be reached at: email@example.com.
Today Patagonia is launching a new collection called Truth to Materials - a capsule collection containing seven styles which explore radical new methods of manufacturing, born from a desire to reimagine the first stage of a product’s life: the source of raw materials. Each piece is made from reclaimed or alternatively sourced fabrics -- Men's Undyed Cashmere Snap-T Pullover, Women's Undyed Cashmere Cardigan, Men's Reclaimed Cotton Hoody, Women's Reclaimed Cotton Crew, Men's Reclaimed Wool Jacket, Women's Reclaimed Wool Parka, and the Reclaimed Down Scarf.
Nano-Air™ Hoody and Jacket offer unprecedented stretch plus breathability and are insulated with FullRange™ insulation - a Patagonia exclusive that will change the way we dress for the mountains.
PATAGONIA PARTNERS WITH ARTISTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BRING ENVIRONMENTAL FOCUS TO MIDTERM ELECTIONS
“Vote the Environment” campaign uses art to inspire youth awareness about environmental issues at stake on Election Day
Today we released our “Environmental & Social Initiatives 2014” book that details the steps we took over the last year toward becoming more environmentally and socially responsible. We are excited to highlight our growing support for grassroots environmental organizations around the world.
Patagonia was mentioned in The Wall Street Journal article titled "Companies Boost Startup Spending" focusing on the growing trend of Venture Capital funds.
We'd like to call your attention to a new ad we're running for the next iteration of Patagonia’s plant-based Yulex wetsuit for Fall/Winter 2014 in select publications this fall.
The ad states: WE HAVE THE BEST WEED IN TOWN (and we’re giving it away)
Patagonia’s promotion of Yulex is the latest example of its unusual commitment to advancing sustainability, sometimes at the expense of its bottom line. It introduced organically grown cotton into its products in the 1990s, pushing ahead even though it lost customers and money on the transition. It has rejiggered its corporate structure so it can count success in factors that benefit the public, like helping the environment, rather than simply maximizing profit, without the fear of being sued by potential investors.

We launched a brand new Patagonia.com in the past week. In a few words, the new site provides our customers with a really beautiful, streamlined experience on any device – getting people closer to the sports they love and giving a more transparent look at the factories where their gear is made. Below, I’ve described a few more key features – definitely let me know if you’re interested in more information. Best thing to do is just give it a rip!

Ventura, Calif. (July 8, 2014) – Patagonia today launched the award-winning documentary film DamNation on iTunes and through several On Demand services. DamNation is a film odyssey that explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers.
In case you haven’t heard the news, I want to call your attention to a major, hard-won environmental victory yesterday, with the Chilean government's cancellation of environmental permits for the HidroAysén five-dam power project that threatened Patagonia's free-flowing Baker and Pascua Rivers. We congratulate the Chilean people for their victory.
“DamNation” Premiere Screening in Washington, D.C., Brings Together Media and Political Leaders, Filmmakers and Chef David Chang of Momofuku
On June 5, Patagonia will host a special Washington, D.C., screening of DamNation, an award-winning documentary film odyssey that explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers.
Don't miss it! The New York Times published an op-ed by Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia founder and DamNation executive producer, calling for the removal of low value, high cost, "deadbeat dams." Read the piece here.
