REI Stewardship: Putting Your Passion & Sports Equipment to Good Use, Houston, Texas

As Robert Kennedy once said, “the purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.” Thus, your local REI is using their position as an industry-leading sports equipment store to make a difference. Every year, hundreds of REI employees and shoppers come together to make the outdoors a better place for all.

More Than Just a Sports Equipment Store

Since REI first opened in 1938, the store has held the same belief: “a life outdoors is a life well lived.” However, that means we have to take care of both our local and global environment. While REI has always beensports equipment involved in the surrounding community, the company has recently expanded their stewardship to have an international scope.

Each year, they gather volunteers, improve their infrastructure, and organize sustainability projects across the globe. As the REI President and CEO Jerry Stritzke explains, REI not only provides high-quality outdoor equipment but also strives to leave a lasting impact on their environment.
