Hey @petere! I like where your head is at about this. Was there something specific you were looking for to be made out of recycled materials? We do offer quite a lot of recycled products that you can find here or by typing "recycled materials" in the search bar.
Hope that helps!

@petere thanks for the question (and suggestion). A few thoughts:
In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to our Stewardship Site, which provides an overview of our sustainability practices for the products we make and carry at the co-op, including our preference for products made with recycled materials.
If you’re interested in learning more specifically about the topic of recycled materials in outdoor products, feel free to check out our Expert Advice article on the topic.
Finally, here you can find a collection of the products we sell at the co-op that contain recycled materials.
With all of that said, we recognize there’s always room to continue to improve in these areas!
