Cotopaxi (k?t?pä´ks?) is an active stratovolcano in the Ecuadorian region of the Andes. The volcano is an important part of the local culture and is held sacred by nearby Andean indigenous communities. It’s also our new pack line!
Who They Are
We’re a Certified B-Corp that creates outdoor products and events, and we give 2% of our revenue to alleviate poverty. We work with organizations like International Rescue Committee, Educate Girls, and Proximity Designs to provide health, education, and livelihoods in developing countries. One of our grantees, Escuela Nueva, has a presence in Ecuador, and we’re working to expand our impact throughout the Andes. In our own communities, we help welcome new international neighbors through programs like Refugee Card Writing and the Refugee Coding Project.
At Cotopaxi, we like to shake things up. Those scraps of leftover fabric? We’re making gear out of them. That old way of insulating a jacket? We’re using llama fiber. By taking an inventive, considered approach to product design, we believe we can help make a positive impact on the world.
Stop by either the Marquette or Houghton locations for your next Cotopaxi Pack!
