Should Be Good for the Outdoors
At Rustek, it’s our mission to use natural materials to create planet positive gear that works as hard for the future as it does for you.
We believe this is not just the right thing to do, but is the only way to create a truly
sustainable future for the planet and the environments that unite us all in our love for the outdoors.
Focusing our design on renewable natural materials we are moving away from the use of plastics to celebrate the performance and beauty of natural materials in our outdoor and lifestyle gear.
By planting two trees for every item sold, we guarantee every product we make is not only carbon negative, but contributing to a future for the natural environments and habitats that make this planet home.
Sustainability and global responsibility have been central to our mission from day one. We're proud to be committed members of 1% for the Planet, and their community of amazing brands, manufacturers, and creatives who have committed 1% of annual revenue to conservation causes, pushing the world of industry towards sustainability, conservation, and global responsibility.
We’re proud to partner with Eden Reforestation to offset our environmental impact and make our products effectively carbon-neutral by planting two trees with every purchase. Eden provides economic opportunity with well-paying jobs around the world by hiring local people to plant native species of trees, specific to each region they work in.
Through our partnership with Eden, Rustek helps to plant mangrove trees in coastal regions of the world. Not only does this provide good paying, climate benefitting work to communities in need, but mangrove trees happen to be some of the best trees on the planet for carbon sequestration, habitat preservation, and erosion prevention, maximizing the environmental impact of each tree planted.
We’re so stoked about this next chapter in our mission to create a business and products that are better for people and for the planet. Thank you all for joining us, your support gives us the opportunity to make this commitment to the world we want to create and we look forward to building a better future together!
