Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard  stopped by the Fast Company HQ recently with his longtime friend and travel partner Tom Brokaw to talk about sustainable business. It's a subject he knows well, thanks to his years of innovation at Patagonia  as well as his experience founding the organization One Percent for the Planet , an alliance of companies that pledge to donate 1% of revenues to environmental charities. Amid diversions about his adventures around the world, Chouinard talked about everything from how to make recyclable high-performance underwear to what he tells us is his unlikeliest ally: Wal-Mart.
