INSPIRATION GUIDE

INNOVATIVE RECYCLING

Ventura company Bureo keeps discarded fishing nets out of the ocean
by using them to make products such as skateboards and Jenga sets.

You'll be provided with a list of local Patagonia-supported
environmental nonprofits - click through to find out what events
are on the horizon, and if there are any petitions and local action
items you can get involved in, even if you're only visiting for a
weekend. Although Patagonia Action Works is a nationwide
initiative (and expanding to Europe), the local Ventura offerings
are robust due to relationships built over 45 years in town, making it
an excellent way to meet like-minded people and get a glimpse into
the lives and passions of local Venturans.
Indeed, Patagonia is deeply involved in the local community.
During the Thomas Fire, Patagonia Ventura was a central point
of connection - offering 50 percent off to all firefighters.
Currently, the store plays host to a number of local events (often
free) that are open to Venturans and visitors. Surfrider Foundation,
a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the world's oceans through

activism, hosts its local chapter meetings there on the first Tuesday
of each month from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The event is open to the public,
and everyone is invited to come learn about what's happening
locally, from where the best waves are (calling all surfers) to the
most pressing environmental causes. Often, Surfrider brings in
guest speakers and bonus: They usually offer refreshments.
For yogis on the loose, the store also hosts a free all-level yoga
class every Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
And while you're there, sneak a peek out of the store's back
windows at the Tin Shed, a part of Patagonia's own rich history.
Before Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, launched the brand
as we know it, he worked as a blacksmith building rock climbing
hardgoods out of a little tin shed that happens to still be there.
An homage to vision, passion, and tenacity, it serves as a reminder
that small initiatives can become bigger than life.
