In the world of adventure sports, there are three things that measure stoke; grade/difficulty, location and with whom you travel. Dependent on a variety of reasons, people rank these by importance in completely different orders. Maybe having less of one, means you have more of another. Or, having none of one might even amplify the other two. Or, if you’re really really lucky, you have a bounty of all three! Let’s explore what these really mean.
Our oceans are filling up with plastic and it's no secret that single use plastic water bottles have a lot to do with that.

No carbon cost of manufacturing or recycling. No guilt.
So, there’s this little organization that is called Protect Our Winters and in their own words are on a mission to turn passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates and they believe that their love of adventure in nature demands participation in the fight to protect it.
