Do it green: On this year’s Black Friday weekend, backpack manufacturer Osprey is once again supporting the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) as part of its “Green Fridays”. Customers can help decide which nature conservation projects they want to support.
During the campaign period from 23 to 28 November, 20% of every sale will be donated to EOCA’s nature conservation projects. As an additional incentive, customers themselves will also save 20% on selected products and can vote to decide exactly which projects should be supported. The project or projects that receive the most votes will be selected for this year’s Osprey Green Friday campaign.
Osprey also organised a similar campaign last year. More than 23,000 euros were collected and the brand would like to build on this this year.
Osprey was founded in 1974 at the foot of the San Juan Mountains in Cortez, Colorado, and has been developing high-performance and durable carrying solutions as one of the industry leaders in the outdoor sector ever since. The company’s product range includes functional backpacks for adventures of all kinds, whether in the wilderness, when travelling or in everyday life. In addition to producing high-quality backpacks, the Osprey team strives to become one of the most progressive, transparent and sustainable hardware brands in the world.
Osprey takes a holistic approach: from strict standards for raw materials and chemicals to progressive codes of conduct for production sites and the implementation of programmes that extend the life of products. The company scrutinises every single production step in order to operate as environmentally friendly as possible. Osprey’s commitment to developing innovative, high-performance and sustainable outdoor equipment with a smaller footprint reflects the company’s love of adventure and closeness to nature: Osprey is determined to make the world a better place.
