the windy world...

prAna launched an initiative that provides its retailers with renewable wind energy certificates equivalent to the electricity their stores consume. They hope to involve all 1,000 of its retailers in this commitment to sustainable energy.

La Sportiva has also developed a program which has made it a 100% wind-powered operation. They added 3,000 kWh of wind-power demand per month in order to get more local businesses to switch to wind power.

Electricity production is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions and a change in the global environment and weather. Wind power is a clean and renewable energy source that produces no greenhouse gas emissions or waste products. La Sportiva's commitment to 3,000 kWh of wind power per month is the equivalent of planting 5,040 trees, taking six cars off the road per year, and eliminating 130,980 ponds of CO2 emissions.
