In honour of Earth Day on the 22nd of April 2022, we’re sharing how our clients are taking action. From responding to humanitarian crises around the world to innovative ways to reduce waste, we hope you feel inspired!

It’s not just our clients who are making conscious changes to better protect the Earth. Springer Jo has shared her top tips for a more eco-friendly lifestyle – read it here!


Trekitt is encouraging its customers to think twice before throwing away an item at the first sign of wear and tear, with its range of repair and care essentials, including repair kits that work on a range of materials including GORE-TEX. 


Similarly, LEKI now gives the option to buy spare parts allowing you to recondition your LEKI poles, reducing waste. Shop here.

Hydro Flask

Hydro Flask’s Parks For All programme highlights the importance of public green spaces for all to enjoy. Through this, we can look to better protect our natural world whilst reaping the benefits of living healthier, happier lives outdoors. 

Darn Tough Vermont

Darn Tough has supported the Vermont Foodbank since 2003 and has now donated way over one million meals. In 2020, Darn Tough decided to take its partnership with the Vermont Foodbank even further and committed to quarterly giving days to support the food bank. 


The company is devoted to providing access to clean water to those who need it most through its Give Back Programme; for every LifeStraw product purchased, a child in a developing country receives access to safe drinking water for an entire school year as well as life-saving education on the importance of safe drinking water. 


22nd April also marks the 30th birthday of ethical, high-performance clothing brand Páramo. Working with the Miquelina Foundation in Colombia, Páramo’s dedicated repair workshop provides the opportunity to trade in Páramo kit for new, the old kit is then restored and often re-sold, giving them a second life. When beyond repair, old unwanted garments are sent to be recycled into new polyester, ensuring nothing goes to landfill. 


Durability and sustainability go hand in hand with NEMO’s new OSMO™ tent fabric. Made from 100% recycled materials and without the use of harmful flame-retardant chemicals or fluorinated water repellents (PFAS).


PPC-Free waterproofing and after-care solutions provider Nikwax is committed to maximising the enjoyment of the great outdoors with minimal environmental impact. What’s more, by the end of 2023 Nikwax will ensure 99% of all single-use plastic bought is recyclable.

If you are celebrating Earth Day, we’d love to hear from you!
