Eco-Friendly Precautions To Take During Excursions

Whether you’re at home or in the middle of an overland trip, you can start minimizing your carbon footprint starting this exact moment. As an outdoor e-commerce company that’s managed by humans who love nature, we believe it is our duty to educate ways to minimize our carbon footprint. Below are a few tips you need to consider for your next trip.

Pack Light

The lighter you pack, the less heavy your vehicle will be. The lighter your vehicle is, the less fuel it will need. Avoid emitting greenhouse gases by simply packing light.

Avoid Plastic Bags

Plastic bags can take up to 500 years to biodegrade. Shocking, right? When packing your food and items, use reusable bags. The environment will thank you.

Drink From Reusable Bottles

Don’t stock up on plastic bottles. Plastic bottles account for the majority of our waste. Become eco-friendly by investing in a reusable bottle that you can use over and over again. Keep your
water bottle handy to fill up at water fountain stations.

Stick To The Trails

When hiking, never go off the trail and maintain a distance from animals. Going off the trail can endanger plants which will result in damaging the ecosystem. Be respectful and follow all trail signs.

How We’re Minimizing Our Carbon Footprint

If you’ve purchased from our site, you know by now that our packaging is eco-friendly. Being an e-commerce company, we’ve realized how much waste our packaging could create. With this in mind, we decided to use a reusable cinch bag to ship items to our customers. Our goal is to encourage
everyone to reuse our packaging to organize their gear, store food in their rig, or re-gift it to the next outdoorsman.

Be part of the movement and enforce environmentally-friendly actions during your travels. For more overland trip tips, follow our Facebook!
