|Chaco Footwear has a long history of being a “green” company focused on reducing their impact on the environment while supporting causes such as the dZi foundation and securing access to outdoor recreation areas. They developed a water-based glue that treads lightly on the planet and protects their employees from toxic fumes.
Know that every time you choose Chaco, you’re giving something back.
This Arbor Day Weekend, April 24-26, 2009, Chaco and Rock/Creek will donate a tree for every pair of regularly-priced Chaco footwear sold online or in stores.
|Klean Kanteen is a company that makes pure stainless steel bottles created to encourage better health, hydration and environmental responsibility.
Better Health: Klean Kanteens are made from #304 stainless steel, the material of choice in the food processing, dairy, and brewery industries. Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert, sanitary, toxin-free, and non-leaching.
Hydration: It’s vital for life.
Environmental Responsibility: Klean Kanteens are the stainless steel alternative to plastics. Plastics in landfills and oceans are one of the most alarming of today’s environmental stories.
Stainless steel Klean Kanteens outlast their plastic counterparts and drinking water from a stainless steel Klean Kanteen tastes pure and odor free, unlike drinking from plastic which often makes water smell and taste undesirable. Shop Now >
|Icebreaker’s focus is 100% merino. Merino leaves traditional wool for dead. It’s soft, strong and machine washable. Check it out >
Not all merino fibres are created equal. Icebreaker works with New Zealand’s leading high country stations to procure the perfect fibre. Each bale of merino is certified for quality. They test fineness, strength, length, colour and purity.
This Earth Day, we ask you to stop and think about where your top has come from. Do you know where it was made? Where the fiber started out? New Icebreaker garments now come with a Baacode, a unique number in your garment that allows you to trace your top back to the merino station that grew it.
|Marmot UpCycle products utilize the discarded waste materials from manufacturing processes in the creation of new products in order to minimize our impact on the environment.
For example, Marmot’s entire collection of men’s and women’s baselayer is now made from Polartec PowerDry fabric with Cocona performance technology. Cocona is derived from would-be discarded, or “upcycled” Coconut shell husks. The husks are processed into activated charcoal carbon and blended into a polyester matrix, which is spun into a fiber and then knit into a baselayer fabric. Shop Now >
