    Patagonia: Outdoor clothing company, Patagonia, is always on the top of eco-friendly company lists, and with good reason. The Ventura-based company has spent its forty-seven years in business being at the cutting edge of environmentally conscious business practices.
    Patagonia takes countless routes to being eco-friendly. They have been a huge champion for environmental activism since their inception. Patagonia proudly states they “[a]re in business to save our home planet.”  
    For the last 35 years, they have pledged 1% of sales to the conservation of the natural environment. This practice led to Patagonia’s Founder, Yvon Chouinard, co-founding 1% for the Planet so other companies could make the same contribution to environmental protection. Patagonia has awarded over $89 million to national and international grassroots, environmental groups. They even sued the president to preserve national monuments in 2017! 
    Much of their raw materials are recycled or grown organically in order to reduce their environmental footprint. They aim to be completely carbon neutral by 2025! They also acknowledge that they are not perfect and work to change their business practices to lower their environmental impact.
    On top of all of that, their initiative, Patagonia Action Works, helps connect consumers with local activist groups in their community. All of this makes complete sense if you get the chance to learn more about Yvon Chouinard.
     
    Pela: This company create phone cases, sunglasses, watch straps, and Airpod cases from 100% compostable materials. Their mission is to help keep 1 billion pounds of plastic from ever being made. 

    We believe that the technology exists to make our BHAG a reality, it just takes the right company with the right community to make these products the new normal. This is why we are developing products made of environmentally sensible materials. To educate and inspire the global community of people who are committed to making a positive impact on our planet. Put simply, we believe in better. Everyday Products Without Everyday Waste™

    Winfield Coffee: Winfield Street Coffee was created to be a community gathering coffee place where guests can find a warm smile, excellent coffee and creative food. This local business has three locations in Connecticut, and is opening up 3 additional locations in NYC this summer! Supporting local businesses is a great alternative to multinational corporations, and can help businesses succeed in our communities! Giving back is also a major principle for the Company, as Winfield is committed to donating 21,000 meals by the end of 2021!
