We don't just love the outdoors, we strive to protect it. We are proud to be partners with the below organizations in their missions to advance the outdoor industry as well as protect our wild surroundings.
The Conservation Alliance’s mission is to engage businesses to fund and partner with organizations to protect wild places for their habitat and recreation values.The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor industry companies that disburses its collective annual membership dues to grassroots environmental organizations. We direct our funding to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat, preferably where outdoor enthusiasts recreate. The Alliance was founded in 1989 by industry leaders REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, who shared the goal of increasing outdoor industry support for conservation efforts. We now have more than 185 member companies, and plan to disburse $1.5 million in 2013.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with families-in-need to create simple, decent home ownership opportunities in Teton County. Founded in 1995, HFHGTA has built 26 homes in Teton County, WY, and will build 4 more in the Spring of 2014. The homes are sold to partner families at no profit with a 0% interest mortgage. Partner families work closely with the organization, investing 500 hours of their own labor, or “sweat-equity”, in building their homes and those of their neighbors. Stio is proud to provide the entire Habitat staff with apparel for the jobsite and office, and enthusiastically participates in quarterly work sessions on Habitat homes.

What makes Vertical Harvest so utterly unique is that it is able to speak to a vital community need via innovation at every level. Vertical Harvest will be the first project in Wyoming completely dedicated to serving our citizens with disabilities, providing a range of meaningful jobs for this population who at present have very limited work opportunities. In order to maximize the amount of jobs we are able to produce on a small site, we are going up, creating one of the country’s first vertical greenhouses.
