WF Creation Care Stat


Before it was cool to be green, we at Wild Frontier have been encouraging youth workers to at least put a Creation Care stat on their websites or newsletters to help connect faith to this important issue with teens.

Patagonia, an outdoor clothing company, tells customers to think twice before buying.  On Black Friday last year, the brand had an "anti-black Friday" event and encouraged customers to get their items repaired instead. Patagonia also ran an ad with one of its garments that said "don't buy this jacket." The "socially and environmentally conscious practices" have helped profits triple since 2008.  

"We design and sell things made to last and be useful. But we ask our customers not to buy from us what you don’t need or can’t really use. Everything we make--everything anyone makes--costs the planet more than it gives back."  --Patagonia philosophy
