Osprey: Earth Day Give Back

As part of our 50th Anniversary, we're excited to collaborate with the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) and Fix The Fells, dedicated to trail restoration and footpath repair in the Lake District. This collaboration goes beyond our annual support as a Sustaining Member, which we will be fundraising in different ways throughout the year, targeting a total of £20,000 raised. Marking a unique opportunity for Osprey to make a lasting impact on the trails we love.

This Earth Day weekend, we're pledging 10% of profits from all our products sold on our website and 20% of profits from the new Talon Earth and Daylite Plus Earth ranges directly to EOCA, this begins our support to raise these essential funds.

 


Fix The Fells

Fix the Fells partnership has been successfully restoring paths and preventing erosion for over 20 years.

"Path erosion in the Lake District is not a new phenomenon. Users in the 19th century complained about the erosion of some of the pack pony tracks. But with over 19 million visitors coming to enjoy the beautiful and inspiring Lake District each year, it is increasingly something that needs to be managed. The fells are there for everyone to enjoy but the combination of all these feet, the gradient of the paths and the extremes of the Lake District weather can lead to significant erosion, causing unsightly scars on a World Heritage landscape, habitat loss, water pollution and damage to the archaeological and natural history of the area.

We remain committed to do even more and, as an official sustaining member, we have pledged to donate at least €10,000 per year to EOCA’s conservation projects, to help protect and regenerate the wild places we all care so much about.
