Patagonia -- 2016 Election, Vote Our Planet


With the presidential debate at the forefront of everybody's minds, it's easy to forget about anything besides who's to become our next President. But did you know there are a number of props out there that have the potential to do a lot of good for our planet? Our friends at Patagonia have created a helpful guide based on city for how each of us can use our voice and #VoteOurPlanet on issues of air, water, and soil this Election Day on Nov. 8th.

At HFS, sustainability and the protection of our planet is extremely important to us. We want to leave the earth more beautiful and with less waste than we found it, so we use only the most innovative recycled textiles and eco-friendly certified fabrics for our belt bags.

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages." – Thomas A. Edison, inventor and scientist


As you may know, we donate 5% of the purchase price of every belt bag sold online to organizations that either help empower women, protect animals or save the planet. This month we are adding a new organization, Mercy for Animals, to the mix of organizations we support. Mercy For Animals (MFA) is an international, non-profit organization, founded in 1999, dedicated to the prevention of cruel and inhumane treatment of farm animals. Their mission, as described on their website, states: “We are committed to reducing the greatest amount of suffering for the largest number of animals. Our efforts focus on protecting farmed animals—the most abused and exploited animals on the planet—and utilize a broad range of strategic approaches that seek to expose cruelty, prosecute abusers, and inspire consumers to make compassionate food choices.” MFA believes, as we do, that a non-violent, humane society is not only possible, but as Thomas A. Edison pointed out almost 100 years ago, it is necessary for our own evolution.
