Patagonia has teamed up with Apolis to sell the Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket. It makes a lot of sense as both companies conduct business with a conscience, an eye toward making a positive difference. Here's Apolis' philosophy from their website:
"Apolis is a platform for a network of global citizens empowering people through opportunity. Apolis co-creates products with manufacturers and directly allows the market to determine the future of each item we produce. Donating proceeds can be effective, but we believe that giving people access to opportunity is even better. As the line between development and business is becoming blurred in the marketplace, consumers are beginning to see their integral role in the process as they demand to know how, where and by whom their products are made. With select products, Apolis connects developing economies to the global marketplace through seasonal stories and ensures tangible social results."
You can pick up the Patagonia Torrentshell from the Apolis website for $148.
