Choose to #OptOutside this year
REI kicked off OptOutside and clean up efforts a few years ago and this year we are once again locking arms with folks across the outdoor industry and shuttering our online shopping cart encourage everyone to get outside.
There is much to be thankful for the season. And very little of it has to do with walking around inside, elbowing through the crowds and shopping.
Here are three quick ideas:
- Check with you state park system as many are waiving fees and making it free to visit the state park. You can find your state park system at StateParks.og
- Find a hike, bike ride, climb, or run close to home using REI’s list of digital tools
- Join outdoor enthusiasts across the country today in their efforts to clean up the outdoors. You can find a list of contacts and programs on REI’s official page for this year’s#OptOutside.
Ultimately we are thankful! Thankful for the outdoors. And we’re especially thankful for you and the growing outdoors community! Happy Thanksgiving and get outside this week.
