You work hard, there’s no denying it and sometimes the stress can be a real battle. These are the moments were you feel you just need to escape the pressures of ‘life’ as they start to bring you down and trap you.
Luckily, you have an “out” and “off” button, and you utilize these switches the minute you walk out into nature where not only are you at peace but are a part of it - just as it forms a large part of you.
Camping, hiking and exploring the wilderness is what serves as your zen and you love to explore to find out what may be around that next corner.
You are conscious of your impacts on our planet and know that we need to start making positive change now to secure a better future.
The old way of thinking that got us to where we are today is not the same process of thought that is going to take us forward. You know the value of the change in order to make the world a better place - a movement that you want to be a part of.
Thank you for being part of the environmental solution by making habitual actions, as simple as separating your trash from recycling and not taking a plastic bag at the shops.
The difference is that we are trained environmental scientists who have inspected our factories and checked their I.S.O ratings to ensure safe environmental practices.
Then, we actually went out and made products better than the competitors for you, without comprising being good to the earth – so that you become a part of the solution.
So how exactly are you doing this? Not only is your product manufactured in an ISO certified company, but it is delivered to you in biodegradable bags to reduce the impact on our landfills.
We believe you are the fabric that binds us to a more sustainable future and this is why we make like-minded products for you. We also have some alternative environmental initiatives that we are working on and excited to share soon.
Hi my name is Richard and I am a TNH Outdoors cofounder, I am self-confessed sustainability warrior and outdoors man. Che my Co-Founder and I met working in corporate environmental management roles in Australia in 2011.
We bonded over our love for the outdoors and nature.
At the time I was working on a groundwater project with many stakeholders, I would have met and engaged with well over 500 landholders. Then suddenly the public opinion changed and
my world seemed to come crashing down on me.
There was huge backlash and my position in the community was greatly tested and pushed to the limit. I had to receive counseling for the emotional trauma it caused. The media was ruthless on us and even some politicians chimed in to rub salt into the wounds.
However, I always believe that when 1 door shuts 10 open and this was no different. There was a light bulb moment or epiphany and I decided that I had to be in greater control of the positive impact I could make on the world and in particular on the environment. So, when Che approached my and asked “Do you want to start a business”
I knew the audience we had to serve was the outdoors community.
The one thing we had to do, we create lasting change in an ever changing world. From this moment in time, we (TNH Outdoors) began. With an ethos and mindset of
‘Rethink. Reduce. Reuse.’
TNH Outdoors looks at ways to reduce waste in the environment.
The first step has been by providing biodegradable plastic packaging on all of their products. Whilst this seems like a small step, currently
100 billion plastic bags
pass through the hands of U.S. consumers every year almost one bag per person each day. Laid end-to-end, they could circle the equator 1,330 times.
Incredibly sad facts such as this one, drive us to continuously innovate our line of TNH Outdoors’ quality camping gear and have it provided to your door in ways that minimize the impact on the environment.
It was at this time that the TNH Outdoors Rethink, Reduce and Reuse mission was publicly coined and we have achieved the following results;
That's why we are so passionate about sharing our camping gear, so that you too can be part of the sustainable change that cannot be forged without you. I believe that biodegradable bags are just a metaphor or a trigger and
that trigger is Rethink
We at TNH Outdoors are only want to be the catalyst for change, the outdoors community will be the mission and need to foster this message. It is our duty to educate, inform and empower people with new knowledge and tactics to reduce their and their peer's impact on the earth.
TNH Outdoors Co-Founder
Biodegradable Product Packaging
Starting in May 2017 TNH Outdoors will be rolling out their landfill friendly packaging solution. This has the immediate impact of reduced waste and increases our natural systems ability to handle this type of waste stream. It also encourages people to stop and think about their own waste disposal habits. We want to challenge people to"rethink, reduce and reuse" and we have written this on the packaging to help. An everyday example of this could be simply taking your TNH Outdoors packaging to the shops and collecting your groceries in it or another reusable bag. We at TNH Outdoors are never going to create the change towards a more sustainable future on our own, we need you as outdoor men and women to ambassador this change with smarter choices.
