Bremsen Posted December 11, 2018 Report Share Posted December 11, 2018 The company I work for tried ordering a bunch of embroidered winter gear for our outside/trackside staff from a large online merchandiser. We got this email in response: "Patagonia has very strict brand standards regarding who they sell to. When they vet customers, it’s largely based on how the company impacts the environment. They were concerned about your partnerships with the auto-racing industry so unfortunately Patagonia did decline your order." So, never mind all of the safety advances, engine/vehicle efficiency advances, material advances, etc, etc the auto racing industry has developed over the last 100 years. Personally, I'm a free market capitalist so it doesn't really matter if they don't want our money, we'll find someone that does. However, I'm willing to be they had no problem with the christian baker and florists being media mobbed and having the gov't force them to provide services that go against their religious beliefs. I hate a hypocrite. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
