The Locals Sale has just kicked off another busy season and has two pop-up shops coming your way in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Boulder, Colorado.

The Locals Sale is on a mission to inject some sustainability and inclusivity into a world where a lift ticket can cost almost $300 per day, and winter jackets and pants can run into the thousands. Equipment is discarded more than it needs to be. This season it’s proud to announce it is partnering with Protect Our Winters (POW) and can take in-kind donations for POW. (POW will provide you with a receipt for a same-year tax deduction.)

Donate your gear to Protect Our Winters to:

  • Fight climate change.
  • Support the vital work being done at POW.
  • Help recycle gear, while you realize an immediate tax benefit.

Quality outdoor gear is costly, but the outdoor activities the equipment is built for should be available to all. By offering recycled equipment—from sitting unused in a pro’s closet to a brand’s warehouse—more people can afford to get the equipment they need for the adventures they dream of. When more people from all backgrounds are equipped and excited to explore wild places, these wild places will have a stronger coalition fighting for their preservation.

What on the surface may appear to be an online shop with great deals, or a pop-up sale with good vibes and friendly faces, is a way of addressing the waste and inequality in the outdoors. 

Everyone’s a local on planet Earth the way we see it. So, let’s outfit ourselves in a way that reduces waste and invites more friends into the outdoors.
