This project came about due to a simple problem. I love activities like skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and camping, but when I need a new backpack or snowboard and want to buy one that’s been produced with sustainability in mind, and I haven’t been able to find a website that breaks it all down. Fortunately outdoor companies are some of the most innovative organizations out there when it comes to environmentally and socially conscious manufacturing, but the information is scattered. I’m hoping to create a place online where you can find that tent made with fabric from recycled plastic bottles or the biking trip that benefits a local community in Peru.
As this website evolves, I hope to provide gear reviews, news, interviews or just share some awesome videos to help to take a mental break from the workday and put yourself in the outdoors. And finally, we need something POSITIVE in the world these days. With all the doom and gloom in the media, there are just as many amazing actions people are taking, and I think they should be shared.
