Backcountry Ninjas

image_400sqHere’s some details on a newish clothing company based in the USA.

“Designed for hikers and adventurers everywhere.
Inspired through hiking the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails”.

In terms of the ethics and sustainability criteria, BC Ninjas say:

“The shirts are printed in Virginia.  They are made by Gildan and made in a few different countries.  We started with Gildan and hope to move to 100% American made in a year”.

There is a fair amount of environmental info on the Gilden website.

In support of outdoor opportunities for all, they donate 6% of proceeds to:
3% to the Pacific Crest Trail Association
3% to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy
1% to FLOC For Love Of Children. Kevin from the Ninjas raised $10,000 for FLOC on his Pacific Crest Trail thru hike last year.

They also have a blog.

You can buy their tshirts and other clothing online.
