Then you're in the right place.
Respect, protect, preserve
We want to help you appreciate and enjoy the outdoors, because then you're more likely to protect and preserve it.
That's why we created Adventurous Ink our unique subscription to the best and most inspiring outdoor literature.
Driven by a passion
Gather was founded in 2015. We are charting our own path, being bold about what we do and say.
To understand the passion that drives us, check out our (true) creation myth.
Benefits all round
We believe that business should provide real benefits to customers, producers, society and the planet.
In fact, it has to.
For far too long business has been built on an exploitative model that's all take and no give. Either something changes, or Mother Nature wipes us out and starts over.
That's why we stopped selling stuff, and started trading in inspiration.
It's why Adventurous Ink is packed and shipped by people living with disabilities.
Why we created our Fair Share Program, so we could reward our community for sharing our story, instead of paying Facebook.
And why we're donating 1% of our profits to tree planting.
There is a better way. Change starts here. It starts with you (and us).
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” Dr Seuss (The Lorax)
Collaboration not competition
Truth be told, one of the main reasons we started Gather was to hang out with the cool kids, so collaboration has always been our default setting. The clue's in the name!
We've never quite got the hang of pushy "Buy, buy, buy..." emails, always being more comfortable sharing the great things our community are doing.
On our journey we've pioneered, and pivoted on from, various social approaches. Like Crew Buy, our twist on the sharing economy that we launched with in 2015, through Social Dividend discounts an early version of our Fair Share Program, and our shortlived outdoor Experiences directory.
Together, we'll go further.
