Editors' note

Cotopaxi is a company that stands out in the outdoor industry with its commitment to blending adventure with a social conscience. Their mission is to provide outdoor enthusiasts with durable gear while fostering global change. With at least 1% of revenue directed to nonprofits, they actively fight poverty and support communities through health care, education, and livelihood programs in Latin America.

Founded by Davis Smith, who was deeply affected by the disparities he witnessed in Latin America, Cotopaxi designs products with the complete lifecycle in mind. Their promise of Gear for Good® is not just a slogan but a pledge to produce sustainably and ethically. By 2025, they aim to craft all products from recycled, repurposed, or responsibly sourced materials, which currently constitutes 94% of their offerings.

Cotopaxi’s ethical sourcing policies are stringent. They partner with factories that adhere to rigorous conduct codes, ensure fair labor practices, and complete necessary audits and certifications. Their supply chain commitments follow the UN Global Compact principles, include annual audits, and the adoption of the Ethical Trading Initiative’s Better Buying Guide.

Moreover, Cotopaxi is Climate Neutral Certified, striving for a smaller footprint by measuring emissions, reducing impacts, and investing in carbon offsets. Their products are uniquely sustainable, featuring repurposed materials from other companies’ surplus fabrics, making each item distinct.

Looking ahead, Cotopaxi is dedicated to removing PFAS from their products by 2025, showcasing their proactive stance on environmental responsibility. Their efforts extend beyond their product line as they collaborate with various organizations to enhance the performance of their gear without harmful substances.
