How Outdoor Brands Are Creating Content For Earth Day

Three outdoor brands celebrating Earth Day through relevant content and storytelling.

Earth day was celebrated by many individuals as well as brands across the world today. We looked at how outdoor and travel brands took to storytelling and content marketing to share their message with their fans. From special Instagram posts to changing logo colors, here are three brands that are doing it right.

1. Intrepid Travel

This adventure travel company not only turned their logo green, but leveraged content to share inspirational stories of people making an impact on improving the earth.

 3. Clif Bar

With Clif Bar’s roots in outdoor adventure sports, it’s no surprise that they would have a special post about earth day on Instagram. However, what made earth day extra special for Clif Bar’s blog, was the reminder to all of us about their company goals. As a private brand, they hold five values – or ‘aspirations.’ One of those aspirations is dedicated to the sustainability of the earth:

“Sustaining the Planet: Conserving and restoring our natural resources; growing a business that operates in harmony with the laws of nature.”Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 4.21.10 PM
