His photographs have received great exposure worldwide, millions of views and frequent appearances in media outlets such as BBC, PBS, and National Geographic. The story behind the shot: I was photographing this big male Polar Bear (with production permits to get closer) when suddenly he started to walk in our direction rapidly. We didn’t have time to pack all our gear and quickly hopped on our snowmobiles and drove away, leaving our gear behind. The bear approached the cameras and tried to look through the viewfinder, licked the back of the camera and went away continued on his path. Perhaps he was just curious to see what all the fuss is about or thought of a career change.

Lifelong friendships that have started over ‘what can I get you to drink tonight?’” A WILLINGNESS TO LEARN, INNOVATE, AND EXECUTE  After noticing the high sales of beer in their various restaurants, it was a no brainer that it was time to make their own beer. Cue The Post Brewery Co. “It’s always been trying to do something that isn’t necessarily very available or isn’t overplayed.”  Query had wanted to do a fried chicken spot for so long due to the void he felt. Tacos, pizza, and burger pairings felt overplayed, so it was the chicken’s time to shine and fry.   This quality of innovative adaptability is also what ended Cafe Rhumba, Boulder’s once wildly popular Jamaican-themed bar that had a heavy drinking culture.

RIDE MORE, DO MORE THE EXPANSIVE AND INSPIRING IMPACT OF PEARL IZUMI'S HOMEGROWN SOCIAL PURPOSE INITIATIVE

ARTICLE KELLI RUHL PHOTOGRAPHY PEARL IZUMI Our Wind Tunnel Testing in Canada. This testing proved that you can use sustainable materials without sacrificing performance.

“WE BELIEVE HOW WE LIVE SHAPES HOW FUTURE GENERATIONS RIDE.” It's right there on the company website. So begins PEARL iZUMi’s (PI) Social Purpose pledge to Ride More, Do More. In the 18 months since the cycling apparel company, headquartered in Louisville, implemented its homegrown initiative to “leverage the power of the bike and our global business to create positive change worldwide,” the company’s progress has proved nothing short of inspiring. PI’s Social Purpose campaign involves a push for sustainability throughout their product lines and business practices, a drive for community advocacy, as well as the expansion of their ride to work program. With regards to creating sustainable products, the company is on a mission to make 90% of its product line from sustainable materials by 2022. In August of 2019, the team had accomplished its goal of using 30% sustainable materials by 2020, having sourced and vetted over 70 new fabrics and redesigned more than 100 styles, with recycled materials featuring significantly in the brand’s Road, Mountain, and BikeStyle® collections. “For the past few years, PI has invested significant resources into deeply defining our company mission, vision, and values,” says Aaron Kutzer, PI’s Social Purpose Lead. “In summary, that data-driven work reinforced what we already knew: that limiting our negative environmental impacts and acting as responsible stewards of the outdoors are critically important to the entire PI team, and to our customers. Creating high-performance products that don’t negatively impact the environment seemed like a great place to start.”

We will continue to execute our Social Purpose mantra: to ride more and do more, with a focus on reducing fossil fuel use and supporting projects that encourage more people to ride bicycles: for commuting, for fitness, and for fun.”

textiles I chose to use for each design, such as only using organic cotton fabrics which are grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides, and use less water than traditional cotton production,” she says. “I also use linen that is made from flax, a resilient plant that can grow in very poor soil conditions and uses way less water than cotton and very little fertilizers.” When designing, Ferry tries to create pieces that are flattering to a woman’s physique and can work for a variety of body shapes. She spends time looking at fashion trends – what are other people wearing? How does their clothing fit and fall? “My goal is to design pieces that are versatile, comfortable, and functional. Clothing that can be dressed up or down, worn for years to come, and clothing that uses fabrics that are easy to care for and improve with age,” says Ferry. “Many pieces like the Judy dress can be worn loose for a more relaxed fit or come with a belt for a more fitted look.”
