Hi, I’m Kevin Palmer, Social Media Director for The Clymb. Welcome to our blog. Here you’ll find posts from myself and other members of The Clymb staff. From time to time we’ll update you on the inner workings of the company, the site, and share pictures and videos from our experiences. More importantly we are going to open the doors (well virtual doors) to other people who live for the outdoors. We want guest bloggers and vloggers to show off their favorite gear, how and why they use it, and share stories from their adventures.
What is The Clymb?
We’ve created a private sale network to bring you insider pricing from an amazing group of outdoor brands. If you climb, hike, run, ride, paddle or ski, you’re gonna love this. Here’s how it works: you accept a free invitation to join from a current member (or you can sign up for our waiting list) and we hook you up with deep discounts, usually 50–70% off retail, on gear from one of our partner brands. We’ll have a new brand each week, and each brand’s product will be available for 3 days only, or until it’s sold out. Our very first sale goes live Wednesday November 4th at 9AM PST.
If you like what we are doing, invite friends. We’ll credit your account $10 when their first order ships.
It isn’t all about the sale though.
We’ve thought long and hard about doing business in a way that matches our personal ethics. We’re committed to keeping The Clymb green and will continue to seek ways to make our business practices as sustainable as possible. Some of the first steps we’re taking:
We’ve partnered with GreenShipping, an amazing company out of Hood River, Oregon that allows us to offset the carbon footprint of every order we ship. The Clymb purchases credits, based on the size, weight and destination of your package, which fund the development of renewable energy.
A portion of every purchase made on The Clymb will go to support conservation and environmental efforts across the planet. We’re fine-tuning those partnerships right now and are excited to share more details in the weeks to come.
Also, That $10 credit I mentioned above? We’re rolling out a feature soon that’ll allow you to donate it to any one of our non-profit partners. This of course in addition to the support they receive from our company.
So sign up, stay tuned to what we (and hopefully you) have to say, and tell a friend or two.
