Patagonia has released its Environmental Initiatives 2010 E-book, and you should check it out.

It's not just a place for the company to geek out about how many tons of clothing it has recycled since the start of its Common Threads program (27) or how much it's working to improve its supply chain (though that's in there if you want to know).

The book also chronicles the myriad environmental programs, grants, and campaigns it's been involved in this year. It provided a grant to the International League of Conservation Photographers, for example, to fund a trip that documents the destruction afoot in Chilean Patagonia, where five massive dams are being constructed on the Baker and Pascua rivers. (The e-book contains a video about this from Daniel Beltra, who I've written about here.)

Anyway, check out the e-book. Even if you don't delve into its rich multimedia, you'll likely learn a few things you didn't know and you'll see some really pretty pictures that will get you stoked to get outside.
