April 5, 2010. Santa Barbara, CA— Santa Barbara-based lifestyle apparel company, Horny Toad, is named to Outside Magazine's 2010 “Best Companies” list. This marks the second time the brand has been honored by the national publication, the first was in 2008 when Horny Toad was named one of America's “Best Places to Work.” Since its inception in the early 1990's, Horny Toad has been committed to creating positive change in the world, while redefining the outdoor marketplace and creating innovative apparel.

A ‘do the right thing' philosophy is something Horny Toad has used as a guiding light while building the brand. Whether it's using eco-friendly fabrics to lower their carbon footprint, employing adults with developmental disabilities in their Chicago-based warehouse through their non-profit Planet Access Company (PAC), or participating in creek cleanups in their local community, Horny Toad's mission to give back allows for a truly unique culture and work environment.

“We are thrilled to be honored once again this year by Outside,” said President and CEO, Gordon Seabury. “At Horny Toad, we are committed to doing what is best for our employees, our communities and the environment; all while keeping our creative spirit alive and having fun.”

Outside Magazine's “Best Companies” list reflects an extensive year long process. Partnering with the Best Companies Group, a Pennsylvania based independent research firm, the magazine has each nominee complete confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and thorough employer questionnaires regarding benefits, policies, and practices. The results are then analyzed to determine the top 30 companies who best enable employees to balance productivity with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle.
