Since 2018, Duluth Pack has planted over 15,000 trees in Minnesota in partnership with the MN DNR and with the help of its customers.
DULUTH, MINN – Thursday, April 22nd – Duluth Pack has brought back its company-wide and month-long Arbor Day campaign called “Buy A Pack, We Give Back.” Due to its success with the philanthropic campaign since 2018, the Made in America business is excited to host the event for the fourth year in a row. For every Duluth Pack manufactured product sold*, Duluth Pack will properly plant a tree with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources team. The company aims to give back to nature and inspire outdoor adventure.
“There is nothing more rewarding than giving back and making a difference,” said Tom Sega, Duluth Pack’s President and CEO. “As an original heritage American outdoors company, we want to give back and make a positive impact. We are proud to have planted 15,000 trees in the past and our focus is to keep that momentum going.”
Starting today, Thursday, April 22nd, 2021 the campaign kicks-off the fourth year of “Buy A Pack, We Give Back”. A tree will be planted with every customer purchase of an iconic Duluth Pack product. Sustainability has long been a value of Duluth Pack, and it has helped ensure the company’s long-lasting legacy. Each tree shows customers the impact they can make when purchasing from a Made in the USA business. The month-long campaign will be available to participate on their internationally shopped website at DuluthPack.com, at their flagship retail store at 365 Canal Park Drive, and through their worldwide dealer network.
“This campaign is about paying it forward. Purchase a product that promotes small, local, and Made in USA business all while supporting the greater good by planting a tree,” added Andrea Johnson, Duluth Pack’s Marketing Manager. “We want this philanthropic campaign to be accessible to all of our customers – local and international.”
Duluth Pack encourages all of their customers to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, and their quality products help people to do just that. Sega went on to say, “The Future Forest Fund has helped us engage with the community and individuals to fulfill our mission of maintaining Minnesota’s wilderness areas so that everyone has a place to adventure.”
Since 2018, the Minnesota DNR has played a crucial role in the success of this month-long event. In the past four years, the collaboration has planted 15,000 trees in Minnesota. This year, the company plans to surpass its 2020 goal of planting 5,000 trees. The species that will be planted are long-lived confier seedlings – white pine and white spruce. The plantings are focused on the Cloquet work area. Duluth Pack encourages all customers to get outside and explore what nature has to offer. The Duluth Pack Arbor Day campaign runs from April 22nd, 2021 – May 31st, 2021.
Duluth Pack offers a large selection of original apparel, outdoor gear, home/cabin accessories, and, of course, their legendary handcrafted and lifetime guaranteed packs, totes, and outdoor bags.
