Over 100 companies to participate in global climate strike

Author: Adele Peters, Fast Company, Published on: 18 September 2019

Patagonia...is one of a handful of retailers—including Lush, Burton, and Ben and Jerry’s—that will close stores temporarily during the Global Climate Strike, a youth-led week of protests beginning with several demonstrations on September 20. Burton, for example, will shut down sales on its website for 24 hours, redirecting customers to the Global Climate Strike homepage. It will also turn its physical stores into a community gathering space before and after marches and give employees paid time off to join demonstrations. Ben and Jerry’s shops will be closed during the strike (or delay opening), the company’s offices will close, and manufacturing will slow down so that factory workers can participate in the strike. Seventh Generation is donating its commercial airtime for the week to youth climate strikers. Hundreds of others are participating in the “digital climate strike,” adding banners about the strike to their website and taking other actions online. [See article for full list]
