So it starts like this. After growing up and working around bike shops, surf shops, board shops and outfitters, we enjoy a culture that loves the outdoors. There is always talk about a killer set of waves and dolphins playing in the surf, an epic afternoon rolling across warm red rocks on your bike, or a hike in fresh powder on a full moon snowshoe trek. There is also talk about a beach polluted by sludge or surfing next to trash, trails that all of a sudden become strip malls, or the snow trip sans snow because of global warming.
We sometimes forget our actions directly affect our environment. We damage it with our insatiable desire for more gear and gadgets purchased to enjoy the outdoors, oh the irony. Most of these items are composed of toxic materials and manufactured with questionable procedures. Don't get us wrong, there are certain industrial applications that demand these raw materials, but do we really need all those products that hurt the environment or are made in an unsustainable way?
Once we became aware of how products and companies negatively impact the world, we began to look for more environmentally friendly consumer options. Alas, there were too few alternatives to be found. Frustrated yet inspired, we decided it was time for an outdoor product company to make a positive contribution.
Ecologic Designs was incorporated in Boulder, Colorado USA. Boulder proves to be an exciting location with great terrain and people to test our gear; the location and lifestyle influence this innovative line of products. We are devoted to products and fashions that have a positive environmental and social impact, while raising ecological awareness. Dedicated to the design and manufacture of gear and products from recycled or reclaimed materials, Ecologic Designs and its Green Guru and Green Goddess Gear is able to help the earth while providing its user with incredibly durable, dependable and stylish products.
We hope that you too are interested in making a change. We promise to work hard to provide products that have a positive impact on the world we enjoy riding, surfing, skiing, boarding, biking, hiking, skating, climbing, running, walking, swimming, etc.
Be green and so will your pastures!
