Patagonia Founder Praises Shellfish

Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, an outdoor clothing manufacturer, recently reported to Bloomberg Businessweek that,”Shellfish is the most responsible form of animal protein, because mussels and clams are just filter feeders”. Chouinard made the comment while discussing a new food company set up by Patagonia called Provisions. Provisions aims to create food products that meet a regenerative production criteria set by the company. Patagonia produced a short film to introduce the concept called Unbroken Ground. The short film prominently features groups from Washington State that Patagonia is working with to create the new food products.

While Patagonia Razor Clam Chips may be a long way off, we welcome Mr. Chouinard to come and dig razor clams with us.
