1&2. A BFD for your Friday: Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard has given the company away “to the world”

@TheGarbageQueen does a good overview about the happening in her TikTok below:

@thegarbagequeen A bold move by #patagonia and one that #climate folks like me are applauding! If you want to support them but can’t afford their clothing new check out their used gear website WornWear as well as REI Good & Used, and GearTeade! #climatechange #climateaction #climateactionnow #ecotok #climatecrisis #climateactivism #climateactivist #sustainability #sustainable #thrifting #wornwear #rei #reigoodandused #geartrade #optoutside #outdoorgear #outdoorclothing #sustainablefashion ♬ Walker - Official Sound Studio

3. To be fair, there are serious tax ramifications for such a move. The thread below is a good example of what this means and looks like. Still, hard to make climate action sound particularly nefarious…

4. Something not making headlines (unless you live in the Southwest US): water. A really interesting look at a new resource of concern, water, is looked at on this week’s Catalyst podcast.

5. Something fun for you to end your Friday with from the ACC.
