Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Trail & Ski, Tallahassee's leading outdoor gear and clothing shop, recently announced that the origins and production information for its line of Patagonia clothing and gear is now available from the company. The shop has released this information in an effort to show consumers that Trail & Ski is not only committed to providing quality outdoor gear, but also to supporting the values of manufacturers who make worker's rights and environment-friendly products a priority.
Recently, Trail & Ski owner, JC Gayhartt read about the origins of the line of Patagonia clothing in the The Footprint Chronicles, a report that examines Patagonia's life and habits as a company. The goal of the report was to use transparency about their supply chain to help them reduce any adverse social and environmental impact from the production of their products in the world-wide industrial workplace.
Consumers can view information about Patagonia's corporate practices, products and supply chain, in addition to up-to-date data on the latest social and environmental trends on The Footprint Chronicles at http://www.patagonia.com/us/footprint/. The publication has also brought awareness to key changes that needed to made in the mills of some of their suppliers and has inspired suppliers to make those changes.
"I enjoy carrying lines that are ethically and environmentally friendly in my store because I want my local business to contribute to a bigger cause," said JC Gayhartt. "I encourage consumers to be conscious of their purchasing decisions and how those decisions can impact lives on a global scale."
