Earth Day 2021
Earth Day 2021
The theme for this year's Earth Day is 'Restore our Earth', which fits perfectly with EOCA's recently launched 5-year strategy which has climate action at its heart, its new 2-year focus about the loss of biodiversity, as well as directly linking to the conservation projects it funds.
 
The companies involved will be raising funds in a number of ways. Please scroll down to read all the details.  Some are hosting events on their own websites, others are donating product via Outdoor Gear For Good. All are giving you the opportunity to buy some fantastic items, whilst at the same time, making a difference to our wonderful wild places! Come back to check for updates over the next month.

Outdoor Gear For Good (OG4G) is a not for profit, community interest company. OG4G sells outdoor items donated to it during events such as this, and at other times throughout the year via its Outdoor Gear For Good eBay shop, with 100% of the profit coming to EOCA to be spent on conservation.   Check out the shop for great gear AND the opportunity to make a difference.   Please note that not all of the items will appear at the same time so please do keep re-visiting to see new items. 

A huge thank you to all members and to Outdoor Gear For Good for supporting conservation in this way.

Exclusive Klean Kanteen mug
It’s hard to imagine that back in the early 2000s you couldn’t buy a reusable, stainless steel water bottle. Plastic was pretty much your only option. When Klean Kanteen sold the first BPA free stainless steel bottles in 2004, the company hoped a few folks might be into them. Today, reusable water bottles and coffee mugs are everywhere. Klean Kanteen has become an international brand and has inspired dozens of other companies to make reusable stainless steel products. Klean Kanteen doesn’t mind. When it comes to kicking plastic, we’re all in this together.

From the very beginning, Klean Kanteens have been built with love— the love of adventure, the love of conserving wild places and the love of replacing single-use plastic.
