How was it?


Brands on the Street:

  • Patagonia
  • Apple
  • Timbuk2
  • J Crew



Why these brands?

I support Patagonia. They make high-quality gear and they have an environmental focus with their recycling program.

Are you aware of any “shared value” imparted by these brands?

I know they are out there, but I cannot name any off the top of my head

Would you switch to a brand that was just as good but that offered more shared value?


Aside from purchasing decisions, is there any way you personally try to do good in the world?

Well, I work for a nonprofit. I build low-income housing so, that is probably the main thing.
