Opting to go outside and show appreciation

October 29, 2015

The big outdoorsy news of the week was REI’s decision to pay its employees to go outside on Black Friday instead of working and spending the day decidedly inside. All 143 REI stores across the country will be closed while thousands of happy REI employees are playing outside. We love to #OptOutside any chance we get.

We also use our #outdoorvoice to #showlove for our members any chance we get.

This week we’re thanking six organizations from around the region who support a vision for protecting land, stewarding land, and connecting people to the land. And we’re shouting from the internet rooftops.

What can you do?

 

Then let’s all #optoutside. It’s Friday afterall.
