Climbing in the Magical Green Forest

It’s impossible to be sustainable. For the individual the simple act of being alive means doing damage to the planet. For a company merely being in business & creating new products means being a polluter. That’s the harsh reality of the 21st Century.

At CHALK REBLES we realise we will never be a fully sustainable company, but we try hard to limit the harm we do as much as possible. This page outlines our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint.

Company-Level Initiatives

The core mission of our company is to reduce the use of chalk powder in the climbing community by offering alternatives & educating people about the damage chalk powder does.

We contribute 1% of revenue to environmental charities through the 1% For The Planet program. Our environmental action at Chalk Rebels focuses on two main causes: reducing plastic pollution & reforestation. We try to limit the use of plastic in our products & plant one tree for every product sold in collaboration with One Tree Planted.

Next Goal: Carbon Offset our shipping.

Product-Level Initiatives

We produce skin care products & accessories for climbers. These product inevitable cause pollution. For each product we try to limit the damage we do. If we can't avoid doing the damage in the first place we document it so we can improve our processes over time.
