Guess I'm a few days late haha this year is flyin already, too much exciting stuff goin on!
Starting the year at 350,000+ trees planted means half a million is in our sights... well we're shooting for that 1,000,000 tree mark but either way there's gona be a lot of tree planting going on this year!
We have new gear already in production, and ideas are flowing strong lately. If you're not on our email list, scroll to the bottom of this page and drop you email address in the signup box - you'll be in the know when new gear is in the works.
Hats are in production right now! We're hoping to have these ready by Feb/March.
We're big fans of hats but struggled to find a good eco friendly material with the quality we were looking for... until NOW! Well, until a few months ago but we went through a few prototype rounds.
More clothing should be coming out soon as well - more styles + more designs.
Aaaaand we're working on more accessories to support the zero waste lifestyle aka we're on a mission to make more cool alternatives to single use plastic.
We appreciate your ideas, so keep em coming :)
We've made some products based on your feedback and requests, and we're getting more community involvement on our blog and clothing designs this year. If there's anything you'd like us to make, or any cool new eco materials you know of, give us a shout.
Let's grow together and have a fun and adventurous year!
Make 2019 your best year ever ✊🌲😀
Let’s start things off with a small bit of advice. Start using your travel journal before your trip.
Seriously, you’ll realise how important it is, when you are looking back at your adventures, to record even the slightest bit of planning to ensure that your trips have meaning and purpose.
Before all the memories and ticket stubs begin to flood the pages of your journal, make a list of things you want to see, food you want to try, or dedicate a page to language phrases you can use on the daily.
Fresh out of university after four years studying ecology, zoology and conservation genetics, I was well and truly ready for an adventure.
I wanted to book a plane ticket, pack my bags and head out the door as soon as possible.
But two things were stopping me. Firstly, money. Spending four years studying doesn’t mean you’re exactly raking in the cash. Secondly, when I got back and started looking for jobs, what would an employer think of a recent lengthy, self-indulgent holiday?
Then a solution came to me:
Why not combine some adventurous traveling with work experience?
In THE POWER OF MYTH by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers (1988), Campbell states that “Chief Seattle was one of the last spokesmen of the Paleolithic moral order. In about 1852, the United States Government inquired about buying the tribal lands for the arriving people of the United States.”
“The President in Washington sends word he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky? The land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?”
