Small Businesses Must Lead the Way to a Circular Economy

When we think about system change in society it comes from the top down. Individuals like you and me may even feel a little powerless. Governments and large corporations are the ones that need to stand up and be accountable. They have the power and money to make real system change, right?  Yes, independents can lobby and change their habits to kick the higher ups into action and it feels like we… Read More

Changing your default settings

I once read an interview with a man who, every so often, got into bed upside down. He slipped his PJs on, put his pillow where his feet normally go and slept the wrong way around… Weird, right? But this image really stuck with me. Because he did it to change perspective, shake up his brain a little, freshen his ideas, override those default settings that keep us doing the same things… Read More

Climb It for Climate

Climb It for Climate is about raising awareness for climate change, plus a sneaky opportunity to get into the great outdoors. Climate change is as evident in the mountains than anywhere else. The glaciers are melting, seasons are changing, it rains when it should be snowing. The world is changing in front of our eyes, too quickly, and we don’t like it. One rainy Saturday, One Tree at a Time founder, Gavin… Read More

Life changes very quickly beyond recognition in the mountains.  For those living here year-round it means changing jobs and weather. For a lot of us seasons means moving from place to place. Living somewhere for only 6 months seems fleeting, local life and issues that are usually important to us can slip out of… Read More

Something that lasts years and keeps me super dry.  Functional well made outerwear is a sustainable… Read More
