We love winter here at Terradrift. Maybe because we don’t actually live in a part of the country with an actual winter (absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that), maybe because we’re still just kids at heart and never grew out of wanting to play in the snow…who knows? But one thing’s for sure: we don’t enjoy being cold. Especially me. I’m a tiny human with no built-in insulation and I get real cold real fast. The solution? Giant, puffy, sustainable coats and jackets to keep me cozy when the temps drop. Here are 5 awesome options.
Klean Kanteen recently announced a shiny new initiative for their classic TKWide and Straw Line and it involves swapping virgin metals with recycled stainless steel.

So here are 6 of the best of the best so you can stay dry during all of your adventurous wanderings.
Are you new to backpacking? A seasoned veteran whose worn-out pack is in need of an upgrade? Either way, it’s our humble opinion that you should gear up with something more sustainable in the backpack department. ‘Cause, you know, we’re all about making more sustainable choices here at Terradrift.

Summer’s here, which means camping season is also in full swing. And the number one thing you’ll need for any successful camping trip is a shelter where you can lay your head at night. So whether you’re camping three feet from your car or hiking into the middle of nowhere, we’ve got you (literally) covered with the best sustainable tents on the market.
It’s plastic-free July! Which means it’s time to talk about single-use plastic waste and how we can do our part to reduce it. Why? Because as the oft-quoted stat declares, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050, 90% of plastic doesn’t actually get recycled (including the stuff you put in the recycle bin), and all of that adds up to devastated eco systems, overflowing landfills, and a whole lot of wasted resources. So check out these brands who want nothing more than to help you make the switch from single-use.
We’re all about sustainable materials when it comes to clothing and gear, both on and off the trail. And there are few materials more sustainable than hemp. But finding quality, sustainable hemp clothing is easier said than done. So we sat down with Jungmaven to find out what makes the company tick, why they use hemp in all their sustainable fashions, and why choosing eco-friendly clothing is so dang important.
If there’s one thing that savvy climbers never buy used, it’s climbing rope. After all, a rope’s job is literally to save your life; you don’t want some weathered length of cord that might not be able to handle the shock of a fall or two. But most climbing rope, like harnesses, isn’t sustainable, so eco-conscious climbers may feel just a pang of guilt every time they have to buy another 60 meters of brand new rope (and what to do with the old one?!). Not anymore. Because these sustainable climbing ropes prove form, function and sustainability (uh, also safety) can go hand-in hand.
