Want to make a bigger impact on the natural areas you love? Here’s an easy way: Make less of an impact.
Nature does so much for us. It awakens our adventurous spirit, gives us company and solitude, and a place to unplug, brings us joy and excitement, and puts things in perspective to center us. It takes care of us in so many ways. And guess what? Taking care of it in return is something all of us can do, every time we’re out there.
That's why we've teamed up with Leave No Trace Ireland, an organization that promotes responsible outdoor recreation and taking care of the environment across the beautiful island of Ireland. By becoming a member, you can enjoy a range of benefits while contributing to environmental stewardship and responsible recreation throughout the country.
Nature for All: KEEN x Leave No Trace
We’ve been supporting Leave No Trace since 2008, donating over $530,000 to help fund educational programs, research, and outreach efforts that spread the message of responsible outdoor ethics. And, most recently, we’ve collaborated on a limited edition of our Pyrenees hiking boot. We’ll donate 1% of the profits from each purchase to Leave No Trace Ireland to help fund their education programme and to deliver certified awareness courses across the island.
How to Leave No Trace
While you’re gearing up to spend more time in nature this fall, be sure to brush up on the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace before you head out. Like “Is it OK to leave dog poop in the woods, as long as it is not on the trail?” or “Is it better to walk around a mud puddle to avoid damaging the trail?”
And don't miss these tips from Leave No Trace Ireland on how to recreate responsibly with your new Pyrenees hiking boots:
And, remember, when we leave no trace, we inspire others to do the same. Thanks for doing your part and helping grow the Leave No Trace movement. Let’s get out there and keep it going!
