Savvy Tips You Should Know

Increase the many roles of your shoes and wear your trail running shoes for hiking and a quick jaunt to the store. In this way, you are still buying your favorite pair of shoes, but using it in many functions. For this reason, you can probably splurge on a better quality pair since it’ll last longer. Oh, and many brands who back up their quality will fix your shoes so they can last another 100 miles!

A few favorite ways to buy sustainable gear:

What's the Gear When Going Outdoors?

Backpacks, utensils, jackets, rain flap, camping stoves, and more. If you haven’t noticed, we love outdoor gears of all types, sizes, and colors (guilty!). And yes, a weatherproof tent when camping in Mt. Rainier or a stainless steel straw when sipping are absolutely needed. The hiking and outdoor equipment market in the US has expanded significantly and total revenue in this industry reached US $18 billion in 2020. The average person spends US$283 on gear. In many ways, this is fantastic news because it means we are heading outdoors, enjoying nature, and breathing a namaste breath. At Hey Social Good, all this gear purchasing can be great for our communities and planet too. What’s exciting these days is that large and small brands are making gear with purpose, and this means using scrap materials to design a tough day pack or providing computers to small farmers who can better track soil health and water needs.

In addition to giants like Patagonia, we have discovered small and medium size brands who are looking to a triple bottom line model of profit, people, and planet. One of our favorite brands is Cotopaxi, an outdoor gear brand that works to impart their social good by sourcing responsibly, using scraps to make beautiful, colorful back packs, and hold life changing quests in major cities around the country to get people active, aware, and have fun. Check out a Questival event coming to your city. And, we are so in love with Sunski because each pair of sunglasses is made out of recycled products, and its affordability pricing is an added bonus.

 

So, excuse our gushing because this is what gets us motivated everyday: finding and sharing with you do good and sustainable brands, and just good peeps trying to do the right thing in their own way. We imagine the amazing good impact achieved if every one of the 18 million companies in the US think, act, and impact in such a way. Imagine with us and help make it happen with your next social good purchase!​
