Our founder, Leon Leonwood Bean, was an avid outdoorsman first and a businessman second, so our strong commitment to the outdoors is nothing new. For over a century, L.L.Bean has constantly found new ways to lessen our environmental impact through the creation of our products and the efficiency of the buildings we make them in – and we’re working hard every day to do even more.
We’ve always worked hard to make our products more durable, now we’re working to make them more sustainable too.
“My great-grandfather L.L. was a conservationist, understanding the connection between the joy of the outdoors and the need to protect our precious resources. Land access and preservation has always been one of L.L.Bean's core values.”
Shawn Gorman, Executive Chairman of the Board and Great-Grandson of L.L. Bean
