REI is not afraid stand up for the environment and say yes the Paris Climate Agreement while Trump says no.
The outdoor recreation retailer REI stepped up its public lands preservation campaign last week with an email blast to its customers, urging them to weigh in on a Trump Administration “review” of more than two dozen National Monuments established under the 1906 Antiquities Act. The public comment period closed on July 10. If REI succeeds in motivating its customers to respond in significant numbers, the email campaign could mark a new level of corporate social responsibility in which companies lead consumers into political activism.

"Like REI, Modern Hiker avoided partisan references but emphasized the need for political action."
