Exclamation Sierra Club Supporters

Dated, but still interesting:

In an effort to help prevent the Sierra Club from shutting down more off-road areas, we've decided to post an updated list of companies that actively help fund the Sierra Club's projects. While we don't expect this to cause the Sierra Club to close its doors, we do know that several companies including Camelbak, REI, and The North Face have recently stopped offering their support after being exposed as donors. We urge you, whenever possible, to avoid giving your business to companies that support the Sierra Group so we can help keep public off-roading areas open!

Companies That NO LONGER Support the Sierra Group:

Camelback
REI
New Belgium Brewing Co.
Patagonia
The North Face
Outdoor Gear
Travelocity

Current 2010 Sierra Club Donors:

Adobe Systems, Inc.
Aerojet
Aetna
American Express
Ameriprise Financial
Amgen
Anheuser Busch
Bank Of America
Bank of New York
Bank of the West
Black & Decker
Boeing
Bristol Myers Squibb
Chevron
Coca-Cola
Expedia, Inc.
Exxon Mobil
GE
Glaxo Smith Kline
GMAC Financial Services
Goldman, Sachs & Co.
Google
Greater Horizons
Honeywell International
Houston Endowment, Inc.
HSBC
IBM
Johnson & Johnson
JustGive.org
Levi Strauss
Lexis Nexis
Macy’s
Markel Corp.
Merced Systems, Inc.
Merrill Lynch & Co.
Microsoft
National Semiconductor
Nestlé
Pepsico
Pfizer
Progressive Insurance
SAP
Sage Publications, Inc.
State Farm
T. Rowe Price
TPG Capital, L.P.
Tyco Electronics
United Technologies
The Vanguard Group, Inc.
Verizon
Yahoo! Inc.

No surprize's there. I would suggest looking up the anti-acesser's that Cabela's supports. That may surprize you.

Here is the link to their conservation page. http://www.cabelas.com/content.jsp?p...s821%3Bcms9113

These are some of the Orgs. they support. Many are anti motorized access. One comes to mind as to actively working to close an area on the East Coast. The same group did threaten a lawsuit concerning the Bull Trout in the Northwest. Click on some of the Logo's and learn about the Orgs Cabela's supports.

I found this page from surfing their (Cabela's) main homepage. I googled their name to find the info. I have done this with many other major business's where I shop. If I followed my conscience I would not have many places to shop. I do somewhat structure my purchase's from what I find but it is difficult.

Chevron is on the list.
I work at Chevron now after retiring from the Navy.
They have a program that they will donate cash to an organization in my name if I donate hours to them. They will also match dollar for dollar up to $1000 my donation to a non-profit (501 (c) 3) organization.

They have given $500 to the Cal4Wheel Foundation in my name, and I am documenting my hours for work with BlueRibbon Coalition also for a donation to them as well.

I think they are on that list, as some of the employees donate to Sierra Club, and that puts Chevron's Name on that list.

Todd.

I have tried several times to no avail to get some of our members that are HR types to figure out just how to get on this kind of list. There are quite a few people in the PNW4WDA that work for companys that would support this.
