THE OG MARKETPLACE
HEY FRIENDS, WELCOME TO THE OG GEAR SHOP!
Need a new baseball cap to keep you cool on the trail? A hoodie that you can count on for cozy-ness and chill-ness to wear around town? We’ve got you covered with OG Gear! Here’s your one-stop-shop for apparel and products to use on your next OG program or to bring you back to your OG adventures years after you’ve returned.
It’s no secret that fast fashion and clothing production can come with huge social and environmental costs. Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams.
That’s why OG Gear isn’t meant to be throw-away, one-time wear stuff – we want this stuff to stick with you adventure after adventure. It’s also why why we’ve traced how and where these products were produced, and why we also made sure to focus on a few key products that that are practical for a backpacking adventure or appropriate for lots of wear at home.
THE OG MANIFESTO
At OG, we care a lot about our values and our community reflects those values, too. Our manifesto informs everything we do here at OGHQ and also represents travellers who are socially, environmentally, and politically aware of their impact in the places that they travel to and live in.
VISIT THE WEAVERS WITH OG
It’s one thing to see the finished product; it’s an entirely different experience to learn how it is made from the artists themselves. On our Mayan Roots program in Guatemala, we’ll stay with the women who have mastered the art of back-strap weaving. We’ll also…
- Learn about the supply chain of coffee from De La Gente and Café La Voz.
- Engage with a reforestation project called Chico Mendes who plant trees for social and environmental justice.
- Take a 3-day trek in the Guatemalan highlands and celebrate with a relaxing stay in San Juan La Laguna.
FOR THE PLANET
In a time where the delivery of goods from halfway around the world to your doorstep is normalized, we at OG want to ensure that the products we bring are done so with the earth in mind. That’s why we’ve worked hard to optimize our supply chain so that your stuff doesn’t spend half of its life in transit, contributing even more to carbon emissions. We purchase the products from the makers, and send them to you. That’s it. When we keep the planet top of mind, we all win.
