Big Sky is committed to protecting the environment in every way possible. We are a small business that depends on the stability of the environment to operate, and we are committed to protecting the environment so future generations can enjoy the great outdoors.
Renting is sustainability in practice
One single item can be enjoyed by dozens of people, drastically reducing waste that will eventually end up in landfills. Big Sky only uses high quality and durable gear, meaning that our rental lifespans are longer and allow us to generate less waste.
If you decide you fall in love with a piece of gear, you can purchase it at a discount. Purchasing a previously used item is much better for the environment compared to purchasing a new item, and is a great way to lower your carbon footprint.
Carbon offset donation
All customers have the option to offset the carbon emissions generated by their shipping by donating just a few dollars. These funds go directly to Pachama, a reliable and reputable organization dedicated to offsetting carbon emissions by funding reforestation efforts around the planet.
We use wind energy
We offset 100% of the energy used at our headquarters with wind energy.
We recycle all cardboard and paper waste generated at our headquarters. We use recycled paper for all of our print materials.
No single-use plastics
We never use single-use plastics when shipping our gear.
Green cleaning products
We thoroughly clean and sanitize all gear between each use, and we only use environmentally friendly cleaning products that don’t harm the environment.
