Sustainable Camping Gear Gift Guide For The Outdoor Lover

Sustainable Gift Ideas For The Outdoor Lover

We all love gifts and gifts these days are getting better and better, especially with influx social good gift ideas. In this sustainable camping gear gift guide we concentrate on the outdoors. We all know individuals that love to hike, trek, and camp, so we put together a gift guide for those individuals with some of the essential items we think they will love.

What is Sustainable Camping Gear?

We try and define sustainable camping gear by looking at a few things. The durability and longevity of the product, the materials that are used to make the product, how the product is made, and the choice of the company to be or become carbon neutral within their supply chain.

This Bar Saves Lives –  Variety Pack

This Bar Saves Lives - Sustainable Camping Gift Guide

Every year, severe acute malnutrition claims the lives of 2.6 million children. That’s one child every 12 seconds. But here’s the thing…it’s preventable. Children suffering from severe acute malnutrition have a low weight-for-height ratio and suffer from wasting (extreme thinness) or edema (swelling)—often resulting from illness and a lack of nutritious foods in their diet.

The bars are all-natural, non-GMO, gluten free, kosher, and just plain awesome. For every bar you buy, a packet of life-saving food is given to a child in need. Buy Gift

Yellow Leaf Hammocks - Sustainable Camping Gift Guide

Every Yellow Leaf Hammock is 100% handwoven by hill-tribe artisans in rural northern Thailand.

These weavers and their children previously worked as indentured field laborers, surviving on just a few dollars a month.

Through job creation, we are empowering weavers and communities to escape poverty and join the middle class. Instead of charity, we are providing them with the tools and the dignity to build a brighter future. Buy Gift
