If you are looking for a new pair of skis – check out Liberty Skis. They are a Colorado based ski-manufacturing company that runs on 100% wind energy and locally produces hand-made skis from bamboo! Bamboo is considered to be a much greener option, than the traditionally used materials.

2. A Warm Jacket

A company that defines itself as “the people of northern Sweden”, Klättermusen is deeply concerned by watching the environment change before their eyes. This 100% fluorocarbon-free company, that uses nylon from recycled fishing nets, offers a more sustainable pick for your winter jacket.

3. Mountain Boots


Neuaura Boots

4. Gloves
