Armpocket Stands with Patagonia and Bears Ears National Monument
MIAMI, FLORIDA - Thursday, February 9, 2017
Armpocket Enterprises, in its continued effort to protect the environment and stand for what is just, has decided to stand with Patagonia as they withdraw from Outdoor Retailer in response to Utah's decision to rescind Bears Ears Protection. The resolution signed by Gov. Gary Herbert makes it clear that Utah elected officials do not support public land conservation or the economic benefits it brings. As a company that produces products for and supports the outdoor community, we support Patagonia and hope this will inspire other companies and individuals to push back against the possibility of Bears Ears losing its protections as a National Monument.
