23 Outdoor-Loving Social Enterprises

From Ethical Ad Firms to Sustainable Sporting Apparel

— July 31, 2014 — Social Good
From ethical ad firms engaging in impactful publicity located in outside and unlikely spaces to sustainable sporting apparel companies promoting adventure at all costs, these outdoor-loving social enterprises sure know how to have fun.

Getting outside and moving about is a way to get your blood pumping and engage with other people. It'll make you and your kids (if you have them) feel better and become healthier. But even more than that, these outdoor-loving social enterprises show that playing with other people -- whether physically or intellectually -- is an important step to being creative and fostering positive social change for all segments of society. Sometimes, it's as simple as going for a long walk and thinking about your community in different and refreshing wags.
