As a bit of a gear nerd, I’m always on the look out for new products and new brands to check out – particularly if they have a sound environmental focus.
I recently came across ReddyYeti, a website showcasing the most creative and innovative sports adventure startups. Their aim is to promote small businesses that are making waves in the adventure industry and for each new startup that they feature, they have an amazing giveaway of their products.
Want to learn more about these new products and learn how you can get your hands on a Green Traveler with carry case and set of Tree Tribe sunglasses and eco water bottle? Read on!
Green Traveler: a creative & environmentally-friendly lunch solution
The Green Traveler is a unique container for carrying food and drink, whether out on the trail or just for taking your lunch to work.
Fed up with using Tupperware and other plastic containers that invariably leak or break in your bag, the creators wanted to build a portable and convenient alternative and so the Green Traveler was born.
It has four compartments, including two large and two small ones for liquids or food and has loops for carabiners or straps so that you can attach it to the outside of your bag or rucksack.
Although I would love one of these for carrying my lunch on the trail, it’s actually hugely versatile; it’s both dishwasher and freezer proof and the compartments can be used in the microwave (with the lids off).
What’s more, the creators are really keen to promote a reduction in the use of unnecessary plastics (particularly when it comes to food packaging, one of the biggest culprits) and this product is an excellent way of swapping disposable containers or plastic bags for a multi-use, environmentally-friendly alternative.
Sound like something you want to get your hands on? Learn more about the Green Traveler with this podcast where Josh from ReddyYeti interviews the Green Traveler founder, James Robinson.
Tree Tribe: Reforesting our planet, one pair of sunglasses at a time
The second cool startup being featured on the giveaway this fortnight is Tree Tribe, an outdoor lifestyle brand with a pretty impressive environmental commitment: they plant ten trees on every sale.
Yup, you read that correctly: ten trees are planted when you buy one of their products.
They’ve even got this cool map showing exactly where they’ve planted the 83,000+ trees since they started.
Their main commitment as a company is to rebuilding the bond between nature and humans by reforesting the planet and helping to strengthen local ecosystems and the communities that depend on them.
But they’re also keen to create really cool new gear and their sunglasses look seriously awesome. I mean, they have a picture of a group of dogs wearing these sunglasses so personally, I’m SOLD.
How can I get my hands on these incredible prizes?
I’m glad you asked!
