Last night, a few of us from the Grand Barn had the pleasure of watching Yvon Chouinard receive the Inamori Ethics Prize from Case Western Reserve University. Yvon is the founder of Patagonia and the first business leader to receive this very prestigious award.
Yvon’s accomplishments are endless. My personal favorite is that he created the Organic Cotton Industry. We would not have the awesomely soft and sustainable fabric (t shirts are my favorite!) without this man.
This man has a great message and inspires everyone rethink how we are treating the earth. Live simply and responsibly….
If you are a leader, you need to follow this mans practices.
