Pulling Together Outdoors

As a neat example of various aspects of the outdoor industries working together for their mutual benefit and that of the wider outdoor community, an imminent event in England’s Lake District ticks all the boxes.

As background, Oboz Footwear has planted a tree for every pair of Oboz sold since 2007 as part of their commitment to the environment. That’s over 2 million trees and counting.

Now, Oboz has organised a Get Rooted’ event in Ambleside, Cumbria on 23 November in conjunction with Small Woods. All participants will enjoy the following: –

  • A talk from their woodland charity partner Small Woods on the benefits of re-forestation and a tutorial on how to plant trees.
  • Volunteers will be planting trees in the area around Skiddaw House independent hostel as part of an ongoing reforestation project with Cumbria Woodlands. Surrounded by mountains, with no other building in sight, Skiddaw House is an iconic Lake District site and participants will enjoy a 31/2-mile walk to the site.
  • Post tree-planting, all volunteers will be invited back to the Cunningham’s outdoor store in Ambleside for a hot drink and refreshment sourced by local deli Rattle Ghyll. All participants will also receive a 10% discount off all full-price Oboz instore and some exclusive Oboz footwear goodies

As Oboz sees it – ‘the more trees, the more outdoors for everyone to enjoy’. Sounds good to me.
