Impact - Make your footprint count

At Lodestar, we believe every adventure is an opportunity to make a positive impact on the outdoor places we hold dear. Stewardship — the job of taking care of something — isn’t a goal, but a mindset, a way of life.

We all hold the power to be changemakers. That’s why environmental and community stewardship are incorporated into every adventure you build on Lodestar. Together, let’s make our footprint count.

With Lodestar, being a good steward has never been easier.

For each adventure you plan on Lodestar you receive a personalized impact report detailing the environmental impact and carbon footprint of your trip. Each impact report contains information on specific actions you can take to make a positive impact on the places you visit and allows you to offset your footprint and reduce your trip’s environmental impact — all before you ever leave the house.

Planning your adventures with Lodestar helps you care for the places you love to play, and makes sure they will be there for generations to come.

We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, we want to help make it stronger.

One way we can do that is to raise awareness and support our local, grassroots, non-profit partners. That’s why Lodestar has committed to promoting two of our non-profit partners each month that are doing critical work on the ground to protect our natural resources and to build a more inclusive and diverse outdoor community. When you sign up with Lodestar, you’ll be able to participate in monthly crowdfunding campaigns to raise critical funds for our non-profit partners and learn about the important work they are doing for our community and for our environment.

Through Lodestar, we can forge new connections and empower each other to be changemakers.

With our voices united, we have an opportunity to make a significant impact on the outdoor places and resources we hold dear. There are over 150 million of us in the U.S. that play in the outdoors every year. When we connect and stand together, we can turn our shared passion for adventure into a purpose to make our footprints count.

Join forces with Lodestar and our non-profit partners to learn how you can use your voice to help tackle the climate crisis, promote equitable access to the outdoors, and work on other important environmental and social issues affecting how and where we play outdoors.
