Team Trek and Run is committed to Hiking, Cycling, Canoeing and Running as green, clean and mindfully as possible. That means trying to only use products that are as good for the environment, and the people who make them, as they are for us and also eating as ethically as we can.


We make event films, hotel reviews and travel documentaries that are regularly listed as 'most watched' for events or locations. Visit our YouTube Channel Here.

We don't take paid advertising on this site but we will tell you about companies that we currently use ourselves and whom we feel are trying to do the right thing, or whom are at least producing a product whose qualities add to our world more than it's production takes away. At the moment those companies include Teko Organic Socks, Robens Tents, Helly Hansen, Gore Running & Cycling Wear, Salba Chia, Thermarest and Columbia and are all listed on our Recommended Products page. Go check them out by clicking the links; their ethics are good, their product is excellent and they have many social initiatives going on that say to us that they're interested in something beyond the usual business of making a profit.
