This rechargeable camping headlamp is made out of sustainable wood and recycled aluminum

Most adventurers do what they can to leave no trace when exploring, but sometimes it is nearly impossible to find sustainable hiking gear. In fact, the search for green gear got so frustrating for nature lover Doug Rieck that he invented his own camping headlamp that is made out of sustainable wood and recyclable aluminum. Recently launched on Kickstarter, the Origin Headlamp is not only a sustainable lamp, but it also boasts a powerful 300 lumen LED light that offers at least 10 hours of light and is guaranteed to lead you straight through your epic adventures. Doug Rieck is the founder of Eukarya , an outdoor goods company that designs sustainable gear. Its products are made without chemically engineered plastics and synthetic materials that have been the standard in the outdoor industry. Related: Get ready for an adventure with this ultimate checklist of backpacking essentials Handcrafted from sustainable wood and recycled aluminum, the Origin Headlamp is a durable, reliable light for adventures. With a 300 lumen LED light , the headlamp features a rechargeable battery that guarantees 10+ hours of light. Adding to its convenient features, the battery fully recharges in two hours. Additionally, the headlamp is incredibly useful in distinct settings, because it offers high/low and strobe modes. Of course, nobody wants to be lugging around a heavy light in their camping gear , so it is a good thing that the headlamp only weighs an astonishing 85 grams — substantially less than most standard headlamps. In addition to finally offering nature lovers a variety of green options for their camping and adventure equipment, the company also gives back to the planet. According to the current Kickstarter campaign , Eukarya is promising to plant a tree for each pledge the headlamp receives in collaboration with One Tree Planted . The headlamp has limited availability to early birds for just $99 with a December 2019 delivery or is available for regular pre-order for a March 2020 delivery. + Origin Headlamp Images via Eukarya

Comments Off on Under Cover Camper: An Elegant Two-Person Tent for Eco-Friendly Camping

A quick look at the aftermath of any music festival shows just how little tents are valued, these days. Everywhere from Glastonbury to Bonnaroo or Coachella , 1 in 5 tents are left behind once the crowds have dispersed, destined to be tossed into a landfill. Long gone are the days when a good, solid tent was a highly-valued piece of camping equipment that could be passed on from one generation to the next… but this piece might be the very thing to change that perspective. Under Cover Camper was designed to place the value back into the tent by promoting sustainability, style, longevity, and quality. Created by New Zealand designer Nikolai Sorensen, this two-person tent’s aesthetic is evocative of canvas shelters used by surveyors and naturalists in the past.
