This year Climate Change has affected so many regions of the USA with the arrid dry hot conditions with more than 30+ wildfires in California alone and in Oregon, Washington and Colorado. Millions of acres burned to the ground and ruining communities.

The extreme drought in Nebraska and Iowa, the active hurricane season in the Atlantic, Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico which has brought copius amounts of rain, flooding, loss of life and property.

Climate change is real and is going unchecked. It is time to protect the environment. There are individuals and organizations that are its best advocates, including the Outdoor Industry Association.

No longer can there be a blind eye to the environment. This includes sub human work conditions which is the equivalent to slave labor.

As consumers what can be done to insure the environment for future generations?

It all starts with stopping the needless manufacturing of junk that winds up wasting precious resources that fills up the Landfills and the Oceans. Consumers need to put their feet down, enough is enough! It is time to rid the waste, the sub human work conditions and demand the manufactures of raw and finished goods are protective of the environment, are eco and sustainable and leave a good carbon footprint that leaves zero emissions.

We care about the present and the reason we have made so many changes in our business starting in 2012. We know how important the environment is and do not take it lightly. The USA and the World has a short time to correct what is causing Climate Change. The Clock is ticking. Recognizing this, our pledge is to provide the best Eco and Sustainable products. We

will do our small part. Just imagine if we all do our small part what an impact that would be on the environment?

In the weeks to come we will be featuring the best of the best companies in the Outdoor Industry Association who are Green, Eco and Sustainable. We are proud to be in partnership with these outstanding companies. Kudos to Kühl, Prana and Tasc.
