Our mission at Trek Light Gear is to enhance your outdoor experiences, to help reduce your impact on the planet and to provide products that make it convenient, comfortable and easy to connect with the world around you.
Our name comes from the notion that we should all ‘trek lightly’ whenever possible and all of our products are designed with that core philosophy in mind.
How We Do It
We accomplish our mission to help you ‘trek lightly’ by incorporating three essential concepts into all of our products:
First, we make it easy for you to bring along comfort and convenience without the extra weight or space. We do that by designing products that are compact, lightweight and multi-use.
Secondly, our products are designed to help you relax, rejuvenate, and help you feel better. We understand that reducing the emotional weight you carry is just as important as the physical.
Finally, we make sure that our products contribute to making the world a better place by enabling you to reduce your impact on the environment.
Practicing What We Preach…
Trek Light Gear’s Eco Tote products exemplify our commitment to making it easy and fun to reduce your environmental impact, because they provide the most convenient way to help eradicate plastic and paper bag waste without burdening yourself with the extra weight and space that most reusable bags require. Our Eco Totes are made from the material that is leftover from our hammock manufacturing, which means that we’re able to conserve resources and reduce our own waste while providing a product that allows you to do exactly the same.
If you reuse your Trek Light reusable bags for your groceries and countless other tasks (think department stores, dinner parties or bringing your lunch to work!), you will be cutting down on a damaging pollutant every single day and every time you use your bag, year after year. You’ll be helping to save millions of pounds of plastic bags from going into landfills and millions of trees from being destroyed (not to mention hundreds of bags from accumulating under your sink!). Now that’s something you can feel good about!
Eco Totes aren’t the only way Trek Light Gear products help to contribute to a better world. We truly believe that the best way to get people to care about protecting the world is to make them fall in love with it. And the best way for people to fall in love with the world is to make their experience of it fun, relaxing, and blissful! Trek Light Gear’s flagship product, a lightweight portable hammock, makes hammocking easy for everyone, everywhere, and gives you the perfect excuse to spend time outside enjoying the world around you. It is designed to be the most portable, the most comfortable, the most reliable, and the most practical hammock available. Trek Light Gear’s signature hammocks are a healthy choice for reducing stress and bringing a healthy dose of relaxation, wherever and whenever you need it most. Click here to learn how using your Trek Light portable hammock while camping or backpacking can help you sleep better while reducing your impact and creating a stronger bond between you and your surroundings.
Trek Light Gear’s recycling program is another way we’re able to practice what we preach. Our products are designed to be durable and long lasting, but if you ever find your hammock or Eco Tote has become a bit worn after years of heavy use, Trek Light Gear will recycle it for free – just contact us and we’ll either send you the postage for you to return the item to us or provide you with a discount on your next purchase from us!
The Right Choice...
We could go on and on about how we only use made in the USA, sweatshop-free American Apparel t-shirts, or how we implement energy saving techniques day in and day out in our office, but we don’t want you to choose Trek Light Gear because of what we do, we want you to choose the Trek Light brand because of what we help you to do. Whether it’s packing a portable hammock on your next day trip, or having a reusable bag on hand whenever you need it, choosing Trek Light Gear is the right choice for the environment, the right choice to help you lead a healthier and stress free lifestyle, and the only choice to ensure that you ‘trek lightly’ wherever you go.
