Patagonia Co. urges action on ANWR

Progressive outdoor clothing retailer Patagonia today urges its customers and others to take action to protect ANWR, saying the refuge is "under attack from the oil industry and their allies in Congress and the administration."

The company's website includes easy links to learn how your senator voted on the recent budget amendment dealing with ANWR, an easy way to write your senator a note, and links to environmental groups working on the issue.

Patagonia, founded by pioneering climber Yvon Chouinard, has stuck its neck out for years on environmental issues. Among its initiatives is 1% for the Planet, a program urging private companies to donate 1 percent of their profits to protect the environment.
