Not the first time that this fashion mag has printed a kudo to a climber for some reason.  This month's issue (Aug 2017) gives credit to several fashion designers who have worked for the planet in their choices of fabric, factories. etc.  Included in the feature is the man who made those changes and has paid back to the Earth for decades already.  Yvon Chouinard.   Pg 129.  In a half page article, they cover just about everything he has done with Patagonia products over last 30 some years. And the pic they used, with him in a heavy apron, brings back memory flashes of his GPIW garage, working on pitons in Ventura, CA.   A nice read and a credit well deserved by one of our Masters of Rock from the golden era of climbing in the U.S.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
