ABOUT THE BOOKS
This year Patagonia released Tools for Grassroots Activists, revised and updated Let My People Go Surfing, reformatted The Responsible Company, then bundled them together in a three-in-one toolkit for shareholders of the planet. Available in February 2017, the three bestselling books will be sold together as the Patagonia Business Library, a box-set education on the social, environmental and business practices of one of the world’s most radical companies.
In Let My People Go Surfing, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard lays out his business and nature-based philosophies, which are the foundation of his iconoclastic, visionary and increasingly influential company. The Responsible Company and Tools for Grassroots Activists present the practical applications, strategies and tools to execute those philosophies.
Together, the books in the Patagonia Business Library offer readers more than 700 pages on what they need to operate responsibly and effectively in the realms of business and activism, and provide an essential primer for the future of doing business on a planet with finite resources.
