EcoGear Roadtrip 2017 – Portland

Take a roadtrip with EcoGear! Our friends, Jared and Brandon, took EcoGear to 4 amazing cities along the West Coast and showed us some beautiful sights. Check out the video above to see some of them now!

First stop on our trip is Portland, Oregon. Here’s what Jared thought about his time in one of the coolest, weirdest, hippest cities around:

Growing up in Seattle I’ve always heard of Portland being described as “Seattle’s little brother”. My visit here in September certainly changed that perspective. The waterfront, the bridges, and the food trucks stole my heart very quickly. The people were very friendly, and the public transportation was fantastic. Even while visiting during the Gorge fire and having ash fall on the city, it definitely had me wanting to come back soon.

Welcome to the EcoGear blog!

We started this blog to tell EcoGear’s story and the stories of planet Earth. Since 2006, our mission has been to help maintain a cleaner planet using our bags, designed carefully with the environment in mind. Our bags and backpacks are constructed with recycled fabrics, such as REPREVE fabric made from recycled water bottles, and natural materials.

Did you know that many of our bags are named after endangered species? We want to bring awareness to the critical status of these animals that may soon disappear from the planet we all share. We put the Earth first and we hope that others can join us in preserving the environment and creatures that make this planet beautiful.

Look forward to upcoming posts about green living, travel, endangered animals, and how EcoGear plans on making a positive impact on the world!
