Gear Up, Give Back: How Your Local REI Invests in Our Environment, Houston, Texas

REI is more than an outdoor equipment store. They’re also a co-op that advocates for the outdoors as well as the people who play there. How do they accomplish this feat, you ask? Let their diverse team explain.

When You Gear Up, They Give Backoutdoor equipment

In their day-to-day operations, REI works by the belief of “purpose above profits.” In fact, throughout the year, they give back nearly 70% of their profits to a variety of causes. For example, they use the profit from their cycling and camping equipment to support both their staff and co-op members, inspiring them to share their passion for nature with others. In 2016, they contributed $6.9 million to their non-profit partners to fund projects that protect and improve our environment.
