A South Coast based outdoor clothing company known for its environmentalism has included a special message about climate change in some of its shorts.

Ventura-based Patagonia has added tags on the inside of the shorts saying “Vote The A**holes Out."

Company officials say the tags aren’t a commentary on the current administration, but are aimed at all elected officials who are climate change deniers.

A South Coast company known for its environmental activism reports it’s helping environmental groups around the world with a huge holiday season gift. Patagonia hosted a fundraising campaign intended to help more than a thousand environmental non-profit organizations around the world.
