Branching Out

Bozeman, Montana-based shoe brand Oboz has a simple plan when it comes to giving back to the outdoors: It plants a tree for every pair of shoes it sells, an effort that, to date, has lead to 1,553,321 new trees (track progress at obozfootwear.com/our-story#planet). It’s all part of a larger sustainability effort that includes making sure that no shoe is wasted. Oboz does most of its tree-planting work up in its home state of Montana, but, last fall, Elevation Outdoors joined 50 volunteers to plant nearly 600 blue spruce seedlings along the shores of Estes Lake in Estes Park, Colorado. You can help, too, by joining one of the upcoming events that are listed on oboz.com.
