What the hell does Black Lives Matter, crackhead George Floyd and two years of BLM/Antifa burning cities, killing people and rioting have to do with the environment? Nothing because idiots like you buy into this woke BS every time. It’s not an opinion, these are facts. We’re sick of it and you and your woke minions are the real minority.

The majority are sick of this virtue signaling nonsense and it is not welcome here.

guess who still owns the trust? and the "holdfast collective" sure aint "planet earth"

the patagonia purpose trust will own all the voting shares, while the holdfast collective will own the remaining. same family still, board of directors, etc still owns it all.

sounds like a giant tax evasion scheme to me, adding another layer of accounting for them to manipulate. but the left is brainwashed, so they will LOVE this and eat this crap up.

Whether you like Patagonia or not, this is one of the smartest business moves in the past 10 years. He essentially locked in his dream of supporting what he wants to support while taking 1.2 billion out of his estate by utilizing the most favorable tax environment we have ever seen. It is the most right leaning, capitalistic play you may ever see. The guy is a brand and marketing genius that built a US based 3 billion dollar company. He may be "woke", but credit is due.

Exactly this. The move was to reduce their gift tax liability from $1.2 billion to $17.5 million and it's being sold as combatting climate change.

This NYU law professor lays it all out there.

Anyone who thinks George Floyd deserves any sympathy is either full of shit, a liberal activist or both...
Perhaps you should read the 8th amendment. The punishment was not proportional to the crime. If forgery and resisting arrest is a capital offense what isnt? Agree or not his civil rights were in fact violated and he was put to death neither quickly nor humanely. Is that how the a country that is supposedly the beacon of humanitarianism is supposed to conduct business?

You must be on that BLM Juice. Thanks for the laugh.
What is that supposed to even mean? Perhaps you too should read the 8th amendment and while youre at it the rest of the Bill of Rights may enlighten you as well. If you disagree with anything Im saying then you dont know or disagree with our constitution. Your opinion is irrelevant on the matter.

No one’s buying it unless it’s one of the ten googans that hang out around here spewing liberal activist nonsense. The dude was trash. I wish more people put this much effort into things that matter.

George Floyd did it to himself. It was clear in every part of the trial. There was no way that those cops would ever get a fair trial in that city. They shouldn't have ever had a trial.

BTW, saying someone's opinion is irrelevant shows a lot about you. You must think Biden is doing a wonderful job as well.

1. Yvon Chouinard gives zero fucks what we think
2. Patagonia will not go broke. Hang around a suburban soccer park on a weekend, you'll see.
3. At least he's doing something, rather than whiling away time on an innerweb chatboard.
4. The dude is smart.
