Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 1:45pm

UNH will officially become a stop on Patagonia’s “Worn Wear College Road Tour” on Tuesday, March 21...Fiona Wilson, executive director of the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise, will moderate the panel event. Wilson describes the event as an “awesome opportunity for UNH students to learn from some of the most environmentally innovative companies in America.”

“It’s easy to vilify major corporations for their contributions to environmental degradation and indeed there are many companies who are not acting responsibly in that regard,” Wilson said. “At the same time, there’s a major shift happening in corporate America and around the world. Leading companies like Patagonia, Timberland, Eileen Fisher, WL Gore and others, are innovating to ensure a lighter footprint on the earth.”
