High-end outdoor clothier and gear maker Patagonia is out to prove that a company can generate strong sales while being nearly fanatical about environmental concerns. The Ventura, Calif., company was the first major clothier to make fleece jackets out of recycled bottles. Nearly a third of the power for its headquarters and adjoining child-care center comes from solar. And it donates 1 percent of its sales to environmental causes. With Patagonia being a privately held company, its finances aren't public, but it says it's riding a growth curve. 

Patagonia, a designer and distributor of technical outdoor clothing, has announced the appointment of Dmitri Siegel as the company's new vice president of global e-commerce. As vice president of e-commerce, Siegel will provide strategic vision, leadership and operational expertise in directing Patagonia's e-commerce strategies both domestically and abroad, the company reported.
