    Patagonia is doing their part to GOTV & defend our air, water & soil through #VoteOurPlanet. Check out a list of resourceful sites as well as their local voters guides for Seattle, Portland, Ventura, LA & CA: "The measures included in these guides were chosen due to their relevancy to the environment. Patagonia does not endorse candidates or political parties." http://www.patagonia.com/vote-our-planet.html
