From heartily hugging customers to working as grassroots activists, Patagonia employees are involved in it all. In fact, there would be no “20 Years of Patagonia in New York City” if it weren’t for the company’s staff. They’re the ones in the trenches every day—in the shipping room, on the floor, doing repair work or launching environmental initiatives. Here, we gain a little insight about what the past two decades of Patagonia in New York have looked like for our employees who have been here the longest, Elizabeth Ruiz and Jules Isaac. We also learn more about the Patagonia New York environmental programs that are getting extra attention these days, thanks to Boston transplants Betsy Pantazelos and Liz O’Donnell. 98
