Doing the right thing is the framework for our operational foundation. Through our business practices we are committing to driving positive change for people and the planet.
100% Climate Neutral Certified
In a perfect world, we would all be able to get the goods and services we love with zero impact on the planet. However, as our global economy becomes more interconnected, it puts a strain on our natural resources, putting the environments we love at risk. In our commitment to being good stewards of the mountain life and protecting the places we play, we are proud to announce that for the second year in a row we have completely offset our carbon footprint. We plan to reduce and offset our footprint in all future years to come.
In an effort to take responsibility for the footprint of our business, we partnered with Climate Neutral to measure our carbon emissions and commit to taking steps to reduce our impact on the planet. This means we are intentional about the materials we choose, the shipping decisions we make and our packaging. For the impact that we can’t reduce, we offset it by investing in renewable energy projects in wind and solar across the planet.
Stio Second Turn™
Stio Second Turn™ is our pilot gear renewal program that leverages the power of our community to give Stio products the longest life span possible. The apparel industry plays a large part in producing waste and pollution that impact human health and the natural systems where we live and play. When customers trade in or shop gently used Stio apparel, they support a more sustainable system that diverts items from the landfill and reduces the amount of water usage and raw material extraction that goes into producing new garments. We believe this kind of circular commerce system will help design out waste and pollution, supporting our commitment to reduce our own carbon footprint and implement more sustainable practices in the apparel industry.
Since the launch of Stio Second Turn™ in Q4 2021, 487 pieces of apparel have been traded in, giving the garments a new life and keeping them out of the landfill.
Outside Is For Everyone
We think that outside is the best side and that you can’t improve on nature. It’s good for mind, body and soul, and it’s our responsibility to help enable access for all people, regardless of race, gender, beliefs, background or ability. We strive for inclusion at Stio, as well as locally and nationally. We believe change starts in our own community first, which is why we have partnered with Coombs Outdoors, a non-profit in our home of Jackson, Wyoming that provides outdoor recreational programming to children of families who do not have access to the same opportunities as their peers. Through our partnership we will provide apparel for 250 participants and strengthen our community through mentoring, internship programs and storytelling.
