31 Mar Company Contrast: Polaris
Each week 2ndVote takes a look at popular companies that either score well or score poorly. We then provide alternatives that either better align with the 2ndVote values, or that should be avoided to the best of your ability. This weekly series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Polaris (3.84).
Spending time outdoors has become a popular option for entertainment among many Americans. From open plains and rolling hills to mountains and desert plateaus, offroading with an ATV or snowmobiles can make some great family fun. One company that stands out as one that promotes the great outdoors as well as classic American values is Polaris.
Based out of Medina, Minnesota, Polaris is a manufacturer of motorcycles, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, and neighborhood electric vehicles. Through their Polaris Foundation, the company has donated to numerous charities that support traditional American values, including life, basic freedoms, and our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
On the other hand, Honda Powersports, a division of Honda (1.59), is one to steer away from when looking for equipment with which to explore the great American wilderness. As a company, Honda supports actions and organizations that go against the fabric of what makes it so great to live in a nation with a lush, diverse landscape. Be sure to consider Polaris as a better option when it comes time to purchase outdoor recreational equipment.
