Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Committed Commuters: A Two-State Bike to Work with Patagonia Employees

 /  May 18, 2007 2 Min Read  /  Activism

Boca_road_2 An impressive-enough commute by car, 2 states and 3 counties are exactly what some of the folks who work in our Reno Distribution Center pedaled through to get to work Thursday morning. 

Undaunted by distance and mountain passes, Nate Hanson (Pro Sales), Tim Kipp (Customer Service), Anne Cahill (Account Manager), Rob Flesher (Call Center Mgr.) and Mark Blume (Paddling Line Director) have stepped up to offer sound motivation to all those convinced they live too far from work to make biking possible. Their 30-mile one-way ride took them from California to Nevada over paved backroads, gravel by-ways, through dense pine forests, and over one mountain pass. Imagine the surprise when they ran into another crew with the same travel plan . . .

Everybody’s Doing It!Group_shot

Right about the time their route entered the quiet folds of the Tahoe National Forest, our friends happened into another motivated crew: Jan and Caroline of Ropeworks. Telling proof that the Bike to Work vibe is spreading.

Truckee_crew_2 Much of the resistance encountered toward inclusion of bicycles in Alternative Transportation  stems from the  belief that people simply aren’t motivated to ride their bikes. Please take a moment to submit your comments in favor of the Bicycle Commuter Act.  Let Washington know how motivated you really are!
