Trek Light Gear Trees For The Future

Every Purchase Plants Trees

If you look on our product pages you'll notice that we do something incredible - we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree every time you make a purchase

Even better, for every hammock purchased, we plant two trees in your honor around the globe.

Besides giving us a place to hang our hammocks, the role trees play in protecting our planet reads like the description of every major environmental campaign combined: they generate clean air and oxygen, recycle water, reduce pollution, provide nutrients, medicine and food to both animals and humans, regulate temperature, and of course provide a habitat to countless species of animals that our world would not be the same without.

Our partnership with Trees For The Future takes the act of planting trees one very important step further - together we're using tree planting for social good as well.  

By helping small farmers and villages around the world with fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees, sources of livestock feed, and much more, together we're able to bring about not only environmental change but a huge amount of social good and happiness as well.  What's better than that?

Together we've planted tens of thousands of trees across the U.S. and around the world since we began and we're just getting started.

If you've made a purchase from our shop or have ever recommended us to your friends, take a look around you the next time you take a walk in the woods - you're part of something truly amazing.

Backpack For Change

Every time one of our Bindle Backpacks is purchased, Trek Light Gear will deliver a child/student around the world with a package of desperately needed school supplies thanks to our partnership with Be The Change Volunteers. 

Pencils, Notebooks, and Folders. It's a one-for-one model - you get an incredible backpack and a child gets the gift of a better future, it's that simple.

Be The Change Volunteers is doing incredible work around the country building (and re-building) schools to give children the chance to discover their true potential.

Your simple purchase makes you a crucial part of this life-changing mission.

The Cancer-Fighting Banana Hammock

No, it's not that kind of Banana Hammock.

Our special edition Banana Hammock is on a mission to beat cancer once and for all.

Together we're donating $5 from every Banana Hammock sale to the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research and aid in the fight to eradicate cancer once and for all

Have a laugh, relax in a hammock and know that you’re doing something incredible to help put a stop to something we can all agree to hate - cancer.

More Coming Soon...

Trek Light Gear isn’t a big corporation. We’re a small business (Hi Mom!) that cares deeply about what we can do to create change and give back with every sale we make.

If we grow as a business, we believe the world around us should grow as well.

We don’t have shareholders or a board of directors to please, we’re just waking up each day and doing what we can to make a difference in this world - and we’re thrilled to have you along for the ride.

Thanks for being a part of this incredible adventure with us.
