OUR COMMITMENT

PROTECT. CELEBRATE. EXPLORE.

We are committed to protecting and celebrating our nation’s public lands, and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to enjoy them. From the products that stock our shelves to the gear we rent and repair and the materials used to build our store, we are conscious about our impact on the earth and our community. We want to share our journey of continual learning and improvement as we work to break down barriers of access and equity in the outdoors, be better stewards of places both local and national, and honor the history and cultures surrounding our public lands.

WHAT WE'RE DOING

ALWAYS ADVOCATING

Whether it's a local city park or an iconic National Forest, we work to help everyone get outside and enjoy public lands as well as get involved in conserving, protecting and improving those lands. The Public Lands community provides opportunities to volunteer with conservation organizations and engage in learning and advocacy around critical issues facing public lands. As part of our commitment, Public Lands has joined the Boundary Waters Business Coalition to support permanent protection for the Boundary Waters Wilderness Watershed from sulfide-ore copper mining.

ALWAYS TOGETHER

We are striving to break down barriers of access and equity in the outdoors. Together with national & local partners, we are working to ensure an accessible and inclusive community of outdoor enthusiasts.  We believe the outdoors is for all. 

ALWAYS IMPROVING

Retail can create a lot of unnecessary waste, which is why we are determined to do better. Wherever possible, we utilized reused materials in building our stores as well as source FSC Certified, non-toxic, post-consumer recycled and LED products. We continually assess our activities to tread more lightly in our supply chain, packaging and waste stream, carbon emissions, and the products we sell.
