At Outside, nothing is more important to us than fresh air, clean water, and a stable climate. With Earth Day celebrations happening around the globe this coming weekend, we're sharing our commitment to three sustainability targets as announced by our CEO Robin Thurston back in December 2020. The future of our trails, peaks, waterways, and natural playgrounds depends on the action we take today to reduce our business’s environmental impact. We hope it inspires you to consider your personal efforts in taking care of this planet so we can all have a place to enjoy for generations to come.
Spring is in full swing and if running a half-marathon is a goal of yours, now is the time to start training. Whether it’s your first, or you want to make it your best, our 12-week, effort-based plans will help you achieve your goal and make it an experience to remember.
And now here’s a fun fact: your feet have about 250,000 sweat glands and produce nearly half a pint of perspiration each day. Throw in half-marathon training and, well… smelly running shoes are bound to happen! Every running shoe-wearing outdoor adventurist will want to follow these steps to rid your shoes of the stench.

Our Commitment to a Healthy Planet
Nothing is more important to Outside and the hikers, skiers, climbers, runners, and other active lifestyle enthusiasts we serve than fresh air, clean water, and a stable climate. The future of our trails, peaks, waterways and natural playgrounds depends on the actions we take today to reduce the environmental impact of our business. To that end, CEO Robin Thurston publicly committed Outside to three sustainability targets with a letter to the outdoor industry in December 2020.

The humble rope bag was already simple and adaptable. But KAVU has now perfected the carryall staple by constructing it out of 100 percent organic cotton. Adjustable crossbody rope straps, two vertical zip pockets, two key or cell phone pockets, and side release buckles ensure you’ll look good and do good in town or on any adventure.
