Thin Air Culture is a mountain lifestyle brand based in the mountains of Lake Tahoe. These shirts are made from 50% recycled poly (6 recycled water bottles), 25% organic cotton and 25% modal (sustainably farm harvested birch). They are assembled in a certified humanitarian, socially conscious workplace. They screen print our designs on the shirts in house using water based inks, which are Phthalate and PVC free and don't require chemicals to clean up after printing. This shirt is stylish and showcases a sustainability commitment.
Designed with the female fisherman and boater in mind, this XTRATUF Salmon Sisters Legacy boot is waterproof, lightweight and comfortable. The Legacy boot’s signature design and rubber compound provide traction and stability in even the most challenging fishing conditions.
Give Fish: For every purchase, Salmon Sisters donates a can of wild Alaska salmon to the Alaska Food Bank.
Dear Summit Supply Co. designs responsibly made goods for nature lovers - including hiking and National Park inspired tees, maps, stickers, and more. A portion of proceeds is donated to The National Park Foundation. This Trail Journal is a pocket journal with a prompt on every page for an easy and meaningful record of your hikes. It is printed in Portland, OR, on 100% recycled paper in vegetable-inks. A great small gift for that friend who'd rather be lost in the woods than anywhere else!
Yes, luxury, ruggedness and eco friendliness are a possible trio and an impressive one at that. The Lava Duo adventure towels, created by Lava Linens, are made of premium quality French linen. Not made of your typical linen, the towels feel great against the skin, are extremely absorbent and dry quickly. From wiping muddy legs clean after a wet trail run to quickly drying off when transitioning from the swim to the bike of a triathlon, these towels perform. And best of all, unlike microfiber towels that shed micro plastics when used and washed, the Lava Duo towels shed natural, biodegradable fibers. Finally, with a true focus on sustainability, women-owned and run Lava Linens has designed these towels to last by reinforcing edges and seams and offering a lifetime repair policy. Be remembered for giving your favorite adventurer a gift they'll love and use for years to come.
For those on a mission, nothing beats Bedrock’s Cairn Pro sandal. With its super sticky, non-marking outsole, the Cairn gives adventurers superior footing no matter where they wander.
Give Back to our Planet: Bedrock donates 1% of each purchase to environmental non-profits.
