Durable. Functional. Eco. Here’s how to embrace adventure with nature in mind.
Climate-Friendly Outfits for the Outdoor Lifestyle

Cape Concept, another eco-driven apparel brand, creates made-to-order garments using low-impact materials.

Protective & practical accessories
If you’re headed to the sunny ski slopes this winter, it’s best to protect your eyes with consciously-made, high-grade eyewear. Karün – meaning “to be nature” in the Mapuche language from Chile – designed the Kona sunglasses specifically for the toughest environments. Sourced in Patagonia, Kona frames are made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon. The glasses can also be sent back after use to be recycled into new eyewear, and you’ll receive a 25% discount off your next purchase.
If the outdoor lifestyle feels too adventurous, step out for a nature walk in style and comfort with WAO’s Low Top Nylong shoes.
