After Kris Tompkins graduated from the College of Idaho, she started full-time in a climbing equipment company that became the outdoor clothing brand Patagonia in 1973. At the age of 23, Tompkins became General Manager, and at 28 she became CEO. Since 1984 Patagonia has been active in the One Percent for the Planet association. Each year, they donate either 1% of their profits or 10% of their turnover to environmental organisations, whichever is greater. In 1993, Tompkins left Patagonia in order to devote herself entirely to environmental protection. Together with her husband Douglas Tompkins she founded several national parks in Chile and Argentina, mainly in Patagonia.
