Our first chance to spread happiness comes the moment we first meet and it continues long after.
From our Live Chat & Support staffed by real people who know how to help, to the handwritten notes in every order we ship.
Whether you're a potential customer or already part of the TLG family, we put our heart and soul into creating happiness for you every step of the way.
Whoever says you can't buy happiness should spend a few minutes in a Trek Light hammock.
Our products are designed with the lofty but sincere goal of changing the world one smile at a time: to help you relax more, adventure more, reduce stress, create lifelong memories, find gratitude, lessen your environmental impact, or maybe just spread some cheer as you wear your Hammock Time shirt around town.
"I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's @$$, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it." - Tommy Boy
Happiness shouldn't be temporary and neither should the products you buy.
We've earned our reputation for quality after 15+ years in business and we stand behind everything we make with a Lifetime Warranty and Happiness Guarantee.
Our 1-For-1 Give Back model means that every purchase you make is a catalyst for change - the first step in a domino effect of good that you help create. From tree planting to school supplies to the fight against cancer, we're making it possible for you to Feel Good, Do Good and Pass It On with every purchase made.
They say happiness is only real when shared, let's share it with the world.
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.
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 - for less than $40 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.
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.
Trek Light Gear isn’t a big corporation. We’re a small business with a tiny staff (Hi Mom!) that cares more about what we can do to create change and give back than our own bottom line.
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.
We write some pretty cool things.
