Looking to buy a new ski jacket, but would prefer one made with fabric made from recycled plastic bottles? How about a snowboard made with bamboo, recycled metal edges and non-toxic epoxies to hold the whole shebang together?! The goal is to provide you with the resources and information you need to make informed purchasing decisions.
Who am I?
I'm a guy who wants to buy a new backpack built with sustainability in mind but can't find a great website that tells me what my options are and how to buy it.
Growing up with the rolling hills of Wisconsin to slide down, I eventually felt the call of the mountains and moved to Colorado. After a few years of turning screws and waxing boards in Summit County, I moved to Denver to work for a South American Adventure and Ecotourism operator. Family drew me back to Wisconsin, but the burning passion for fresh air, free fall and muddy mountain bike tires has never left my soul. I believe sustainability is the key to truly making our world a better place, as it combines the environmental, social justice and business worlds. I admire the people in these industries who take it upon themselves to care about more than just making a buck, and I want to do everything I can to support them.
Disclaimer: Just like you, I gotta pay the bills. When I feature a product I think has an aspect of sustainability I think is interesting I'll even provide links for where you can buy it. In some situations I'll get a commission as a referral, but I also provide info and links to products if there isn't a commission. Thank you!
