Santa Barbara, CA: Meaningful relationships make the world go round. Relationships come in all shapes and sizes, however, the best relationships are with those that help us grow, provide support and encourage us to keep moving forward. The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics would not be the most widely accepted outdoor ethics program if it weren’t for our loyal members and dedicated partners. These meaningful relationships allow The Center to continue its mission and teach people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly and ensure the long-term health of our natural world.
This week, Traveling Trainers Dani and Roland, had the pleasure of meeting the Horny Toad crew in sunny California. Horny Toad Activewear has been a long-time supporter of Leave No Trace and we were delighted to spend an afternoon with The Toads! The Center actively works with businesses and organizations, whether directly involved in the outdoors or not, that hold conservation, education and community as core values. Horny Toad Activewear believes the choices they make as a company are as important as the clothes they create. The Toads strive to lighten their environmental footprint, stay active in their communities and contribute to organizations that improve our world – the world we all enjoy.
Our members and partners take their responsibility to the planet seriously and with their help we can continue efforts to raise awareness and educate people about reducing their impact on the environment through the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace.
