"Local" clothing article could have been more local

While we were very excited to see that Sara Roth had mentioned Patagonia for being an enviromentally conscious company, the article referred people to the Patagonia website.


A little frustrating because we are just 5 blocks away from you. But what added a bit more insult, was that to the right of the article under the heading of tips for dressing sustainability, is a section dedicated to "Buying Local" where we, once again, were not mentioned.

I thought the article was great. I fully appreciate that Patagonia was mentioned because they do so much for the environment. It would have just been nice if Sara had kept with the theme and mentioned the Patagonia store that is local.

- Thanks for your time,

Mo Collins, manager
