We’ve received many great tweets and posts on Face­book telling us how you GoLite; the steps you take to respect your envi­ron­ment and lessen your car­bon footprint.

Here are a few:

@redzipstar: I put home­made pas­ta sal­ads and break­fast cous­cous in reusable con­tain­ers before camp­ing trips to GoLite. This means less trash!

@Mickey_Oh: I replace gear only as often as need­ed to GoLite!

@bconarck: I do unspeak­able things to my tooth­brush to GoLyte

But the win­ning entry comes from Dustin Sil­vester on Facebook:

I get my kids involved to GoLite on every vaca­tion. Not only do we do our best to recy­cle and gen­er­al­ly care for the areas we vis­it, but we have also tried to per­form a ser­vice project wher­ev­er we go. From things like pick­ing up lit­ter from the beach in Can­non Beach, Ore­gon to donat­ing goods and vis­it­ing a spe­cial needs school in Cabot San Lucas, Mex­i­co. We are try­ing to teach our kids that a big part of being a world cit­i­zen is giv­ing back and try­ing to make the world a bet­ter place. Not just at home where it’s easy, but every­where you go!

Con­grat­u­la­tions, Dustin! We will be in touch short­ly to give you the details on your $100 Clymb cred­it. Enjoy!

In a time when it seems most peo­ple are pre­oc­cu­pied with hav­ing more; big­ger, bet­ter, and faster, GoLite is an oasis. With high per­for­mance gear that is sim­ple, beau­ti­ful and light on the envi­ron­ment, GoLite gear is so light­weight, you for­get it’s there; allow­ing you to just soak up your out­door experience.

Their phi­los­o­phy isn’t just in the prod­ucts, but in how they are made. Their pro­duc­tion process min­i­mizes their envi­ron­men­tal foot­print while devel­op­ing gear that per­forms. GoLite under­stands that it’s not the things that make us hap­py, it’s the nature around us; it’s the ear­ly morn­ing run or after work hike.

We’re giv­ing our mem­bers up to 55% off GoLite out­er­wear, appar­el and gear for men and women in an exclu­sive event that begins today at 9am PST. We also want to know how you GoLite. What do you do to decrease your imprint while enjoy­ing your out­door expe­ri­ence? Tweet us your answer, “I (blank) to GoLite” or post it on Face­book and we’ll ran­dom­ly award one a $100 cred­it to The Clymb.

If you need a mem­ber­ship to The Clymb, you can also use Twit­ter or Face­book to let us know and we’ll hook you up.

Here’s what Fitegg.com has to say about the GoLite Wild­wood Trail Short­sleeve Run Top:

“It breathes very well, wicks mois­ture very effec­tive­ly, and is seri­ous­ly comfortable.”

And the GoLite Mesa Trail 7″ Run Short:

“We like the light weight and mois­ture wick­ing prop­er­ty of these shorts.  Even though our sam­ple is black, the light weight and mois­ture wick­ing abil­i­ty of these shorts kept us cool on our runs, even when we were run­ning with no shade.”
