It’s hard to beat trails in the Pacific Northwest! Maria (@mariadalzot ) knows a thing or two about getting after it on them! Gorgeous shot!
SUMMER GOALS! It’s that tricky time of year where avalanches are popping, trails are snowed in, and the weather is all over the place. It’s a great time to take stock of your gear. What’s missing? What’s in need of repair? What’s dirty and what needs to be donated? It’s also a great time of year to set some goals for the Summer! What are you all hoping to get up to this year? We want to know! 📸 of @paulinadao by PNWOW co-founder, @missmeghanyoung
Maiza (@maizalimarock ) is killing it on her tour around the country! We love seeing her photos and gorgeous smile light up our feed! 📸: @mikemarcacci
GIVE AWAY FOR EARTH DAY! Want to win an awesome PNW Outdoor Women green trucker hat AND help your planet at the same time? Let’s start with a little Plastic 101. This year the focus for Earth day is on plastic reduction. Unfortunately, about 91% of plastic ISN’T recycled; it ends up in landfills or the ocean and eventually back to us. Plastic is made from many chemicals that aren’t just bad for the earth, they are bad for us as well. If plastic is thrown out in the form of litter, it often ends up in rivers and lakes, which eventually go to the ocean. Once in the ocean they can become a part of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, suspended in the water column throughout the ocean, washed up on beaches, and eaten by various creatures. The only way to prevent this from happening is to stop using as much plastic as we can! For those of us on the trails this means: -Making our own snacks at home: make your own energy bars, squeeze tubes, and more! -Using reusable items (water bottles, thermoses, women’s hygiene products, cloth “ziplocks”, beeswax wrap, straws, refillable lighters, bamboo silverware, cloth diapers, etc). -Supporting companies and products that aim to reduce plastic use. Now you are probably wondering, what can I do or how can I win that sweet hat? This is where the fun begins! Post a photo of how you are either reducing your plastic usage or cleaning up the trails and tag #PNWOWgoesGreen for a chance to win! You have until Monday, April 23rd 11:59 PM to enter. Good luck and get green 🌎! We will be hosting two Earth Day trail clean-ups this week. If you want to join, check us out on Facebook to learn more information!
