Why doesn't REI offer more product made from recycled materials??

2 Replies

Hey @petere! I like where your head is at about this. Was there something specific you were looking for to be made out of recycled materials? We do offer quite a lot of recycled products that you can find here or by typing "recycled materials" in the search bar.

Hope that helps!

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.

@petere thanks for the question (and suggestion). A few thoughts:

  • In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to our Stewardship Site, which provides an overview of our sustainability practices for the products we make and carry at the co-op, including our preference for products made with recycled materials.
  • If you’re interested in learning more specifically about the topic of recycled materials in outdoor products, feel free to check out our Expert Advice article on the topic.
  • Finally, here you can find a collection of the products we sell at the co-op that contain recycled materials.

With all of that said, we recognize there’s always room to continue to improve in these areas!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
