When our founder had an idea for a product that got people outdoors, he acted on it. This outdoor-enabling spirit lives on in L.L.Bean’s commitment to community, sustainable materials, environmental stewardship, and our stakeholder philosophy. Consequently, L.L.Bean may advocate on issues that impact our stakeholders or that advance our purpose of inspiring and enabling people to experience the restorative power of being outside. However, as a company, L.L.Bean does not endorse candidates for office nor contribute to their campaigns. While individuals are naturally free to engage politically as they choose, L.L.Bean employees, board members and family-owners are prohibited from using L.L.Bean resources to support candidates or political causes of their choosing and from participating in political activities as a representative of the company unless authorized to do so.
