Part 1 Patagonia is an international clothing company that produces high-quality products that in turn brings solutions toward the improvement and care of the environment.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
