Protecting Our Planet

The Great Outdoors is only as great as we leave it. Here at Kelty, we’re all about play, but it’s important that we play responsibly. Whether we’re picking up our favorite trails, educating our communities, or building sustainable business practices, we’re committed to protecting our planet. Here’s a look at some of the ways working to do our part.

Conserving Our Playgrounds

Kelty is one of the four founding members of The Conservation Alliance. The Alliance was founded in 1989 by industry leaders REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, who shared the goal of increasing outdoor industry support for conservation efforts.

Since its founding, the Alliance has contributed over $23 million to grassroots conservation groups throughout North America. The Conservation Alliance funding has helped:

- Save more than 73 million acres of wildlands
- Protect 3,575 miles of river
- Stop or remove 35 dams
- Designate five marine reserves
- Purchase 17 climbing areas

Getting Down With Responsible Down

All Kelty down is PFC-free and 100% ethically sourced. Kelty down is exclusively sourced from Allied Feather + Down, who in turn is an RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certified supplier. Our down can be tracked via Allied Feather + Down’s Track My Down program.

Did you purchase a Cosmic Down, Cosmic Ultra or Galactic bag that did not include an Allied Down + Feather Track My Down tag? Due to COVID complications, some sleeping bags did not include our standard Track My Down tag. However, the down is still traceable!

1. Locate the code below (beginning with “SP”) on the sewn-in label inside your sleeping bag.
2. Match it to the description (or item number) of your sleeping bag.
3. Match it to the corresponding Down Lot Number.
4. Enter your Down Lot Number at trackmydown.com
5. Upon clicking into the track my down page, scroll down to learn more about verified fill power, cleanliness & more.

PFC-FREE is the Way to Be

We’re minimizing output of unnatural, harmful chemicals by ensuring that all of our Catalog products are PFC-free. Also, all of our tents are Brominated FR Chemistry free.

How can you help?

Pack it in, pack it out. For those adventures that don’t involve dumpsters and camp hosts, try out our Trash Pak, a vehicle-mounted accessory capable of hauling a weekend's worth of waste & recycling. Use it to haul firewood, manage waste around camp and pack it all out when the fun is done.
