Weekly virtual sessions:

Thursday, April 7, 2022, 11 am MDT, Building A Circular Strategy to Reduce Your Emissions

Re-thinking the way that our gear is designed, bought, and sold – moving away from a linear lifecycle to a more circular model is a responsibility and an opportunity that our industry can’t ignore now. This innovation will not only reduce unnecessary carbon emissions and waste in our landfills, but it’ll also open new financial opportunities and bring new participants into our sports.

Join Nicole Bassett of The Renewal Workshop and Derek Sabori of The Underswell to explore some of the most innovative approaches to a circular model that can be implemented by any business of any size.

Free registration for all here.


Thursday, April 14, 2022, 11 am MDT, Solving the Sustainable Packaging Dilemma

Our oceans and landfills are filling up with plastic – so isn’t it about time that our industry re-imagines how we package and ship our goods? Responsible packaging should now be an industry standard – let’s move this forward by discussing the challenges, best practices, and opportunities that re-thinking our packaging presents.
