Opt to Act - Simple Action #51: Check the sustainability attributes of items you buy regularly

Join REI in making the fight for a life outdoors part of your life with the Opt to Act Plan - 52 weeks of simple actions to reduce your impact, get active, and leave the world better than you found it. Full details can be found here.

Week 51: Check the sustainability attributes of items you buy regularly.

Have you considered how the products you use are made, and where they’re made? What about the impact those materials might have on the environment as they break down, and how the production and distribution of that product might contribute to high emissions rates? At REI, we’re committed to working with our brand partners and our own Co-op brand to create more sustainable products. In 2018, we rolled out our Product Sustainability Standards, which apply to all brands and products sold at REI.We’ve also made it simpler to buy more sustainable products: You’ll find product sustainability notes listed on items, highlightling whether the product is Fair Trade Certified™ (a label that denotes safe working conditions and sustainable livelihood), bluesign® certified (made with approved chemicals and resource-conservation practices), made with recycled materials and much more. Vote with your money and research where your products come from before you purchase; it matters.

Take part: Nov. 15–21, 2020

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