We’ve discussed Osprey packs in the past, particularly their Resource collection of packs with about 80% recycled content (see links below). Recently, we noted via SNEWS that they’d released their 2009 Sustainability Report, indicating the environmentally and socially responsible endeavours they have been pursuing.
This year, a team of 26 men and women will be climbing the 14,179-foot tall Mt. Shasta in Northern California to raise awareness and funds for the program. Each of these men and women have been touched by cancer in some way, making this a very personal climb for each of them. The climb is scheduled to take place June 13-19 of this year. As one of the major sponsors for the expedition, Osprey will be outfitting the women with one of their Ariel packs, while the men will receive an Aether pack.
