“Do Epic Things”

We don’t have an office yet but that is the type of thing we might write on the wall as a reminder. It’s kind of an internal mantra for us to follow, because in order to stay true to our mission: Reminding everyone how great the great outdoors really is - we should be seeking out adventure at every opportunity.

So when we saw Airbnb’s latest campaign, searching for 5 volunteers to join environmental scientist Kirstie Jones-Williams on a first-of-its-kind research expedition to investigate the presence of microplastics in the most isolated place on Earth, we immediately applied!

Not only is this totally EPIC, it is also going to be incredibly profound in helping shine more spotlight on the world’s plastic pollution problems.

 

We recently underwent significant changes to our own manufacturing process to improve our impact on the environment. Instead of using unnecessary plastic in our packaging, we now recycle plastic instead, turning it into fabric which is used to make our snow suits and drawstring bags.

Plastic pollution is causing major damage to the environment. If there is evidence of microplastics in the most isolated place on Earth, as we expect there might be, then the findings would help place extra pressure on other businesses to change policies around plastic usage and disposal.

So, if you have the capacity to do so, we would highly encourage you to volunteer for the expedition! We would love to have a Dinoski representative out in the field doing important work like this and we will always be on the look out for similar conservation adventures that you guys might find interesting.
