Our Team is Trashy

At least once a month we get out and get our hands dirty picking up trash from the wild places we love.

OUR WAREHOUSE

It's the little things that make a big impact.

Biodegradable Cleanup Bags

We ship each order with a KNW biodegradable trash bag. We're always searching for ways we can provide more sustainable options!

Recycled Packaging Materials

We use recycled materials for most packaging goods while also recycleing and reusing materials to save on unneccsary waste and consumption. Β 

Our Sustainability Journey

As we continue to grow and develop our apparel and gear, sustainability will remain a top priority for our company. We are constantly exploring new materials and manufacturing processes that have a lower environmental impact, and we are committed to using these resources whenever possible.

Responsible Apparel

We are committed to ethical manufacturing and work with WRAP-certified partners. Additionally, all of our screen printing & embellishments are done locally in AZ. We know our partners by name.

Our Warehouse

We use recycled packaging goods, and our team is super crafty with reusing materials from our suppliers whenever possible. Eliminating waste is part of their role at KNW.

Cleanup Goods

Our KNW cleanup bags are biodegradable and go into every order! Our trash pickers are made from 100% recycled polypropylene from fishing lines and nets.

Headwear

We're continuing to test new sustainable fabrics that will provide comfort and durability for our customers. We're expanding our collection of recycled polyester and acrylic styles.

Pet Gear

Our pet gear is made from either repurposed materials or rPET (recycled plastic), providing more eco-friendly options for our fur friends!

Fanny Packs

We've shifted all our fanny packs to a new durable recycled nylon exterior that is heavyweight and durable.

Drinkware

Single-use plastic bottles and styrofoam are some of the top plastic polluters. We offer drinkware to ditch single-use and move to reusables that are durable and built to last.

Stationary

Nearly all of our greeting cards and postcards are made from 100% recycled paper and are recyclable.

Our Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability

We believe that being a responsible member of the outdoor community means more than just selling high-quality gear. That's why we are committed to continually growing and making a positive impact in the outdoors through our actions and initiatives.

As a small outdoor brand, we know that we have a long way to go in our sustainability efforts. However, we are committed to continually improving and pushing ourselves to do better. We are constantly seeking out new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and support fair labor practices, and we are committed to transparently sharing our efforts with our customers and community. We believe that by working together, we can create a brighter and more sustainable future for all.
