TheraTogs’ U.S. operations will be closed September 20th in support of the global climate strike, and to provide its employees the opportunity to participate in the company’s first-ever Community Service Day. “Togs Team” members across the country will spend that day providing volunteer help to non-profits and community service organizations of their choice.
“Even though we’re a small company, we believe we can help make a difference,” said Lee Taylor, TheraTogs CEO and co-founder. “We want to demonstrate our acceptance of the realities of climate disruption – to add our voice to the growing consensus on the changes and challenges ahead. Marches and protests can only go so far, especially at our size. So, rather than do something symbolic, our management team chose to observe Climate Action Day by giving back to our communities.
“We invite other small businesses – in Telluride and beyond – to join us in this targeted and dual-purpose action,” he said.
