Mountainsmith Centennial 30 Backpack
A technical 38L ruck, the Centennial 30 is made using 16 recycled 16-ounce plastic bottles. Built tough and loaded with comfort and safety features, it’s a perfect go-to pack.
Dumonde Tech Bio Green Bicycle Chain Lube
Green lube maybe the perfect stocking stuffer for the biker on your list. 100% biodegradable and it even comes in a recyclable bottle. Mother Earth will smile every time they saddle up.
Zeal Polarized Backyard Sunglasses
Give the gift of happy eyes. Thanks to the Backyard's Hyperion lenses with polarized tech, these lenses filter out 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC, 95% of HEV light and reduce glare by 99%. And thanks to the eco-friendly Z-resin frame (a bio-based plastic from Switzerland) they look cool while lessening the impact on the environment.
Men’s Millet Spindrift Primaloft Insulated Jacket
Uber light and Earth-hugging Primaloft Eco insulation uses post-consumer recycled material to create a high loft, quick drying and compressible insulation. About 28 recycled bottles are used in the making of each kilogram of this stuff. Plus, unlike down, it will keep your favorite adventurer warm even while damp.
Timberland’s Earthkeepers line is hitting on all cylinders in the eco-world. Using 42% recycled rubber outsoles minimizes landfill waste while not compromising traction or durability. Linings and laces are made with recycled PET. Renewable SmartWool lining helps wick moisture while leather is sourced from tanneries that have received a Silver or Gold rating with regard to sustainability. And, on top of being technically sound, they seem to be getting more stylish each season.
