Sustainability Initiatives

We stand on the shoulders of giants. Grand Teton National Park (GRTE) has long advanced environmental stewardship through programs such as the Zero Landfill Initiative, recycling education and outreach programs, and Green Your Visit promotion. Park partners have joined this effort by developing their own highly impactful sustainability programs. These innovators are now industry leaders and form a collective that prioritizes the stewardship of Grand Teton National Park and the region’s iconic landscapes and waterways. Grand Teton Association is proud to be a part of this team advancing sustainability and stewardship in all we do.

Grand Teton Association strives to incorporate sustainability into everything we do; by choosing retail partners who share our same values, products that educate and amplify sustainability messages, and organizational operations that tread lightly on the land.


We’ve been busy working to make our operations more green. Here are a few changes we’ve made:

  • Re-using and recycling all GTA warehouse packaging materials
  • Recognizing visitors and shoppers who use reusable bags by offering a special “Earth Heroes” sticker.
  • Prioritizing vendor partners who illustrate sustainable practices in their source material, production, and shipping.
  • Implementing zero waste practices.
  • Achieved carbon neutral status for employee and business travel.



We believe what something’s made of and how it’s made matters. Our goal is to use the most eco-friendly materials and manufacturing possible, which is why our products start with American grown, Forest Sustainability Council certified wood. By relying on natural materials instead of plastic, we lower our carbon footprint, reduce plastic waste, and ensure each of our products provides a connection to the natural world.


From the very beginning, Klean Kanteens have been built with love— the love of adventure, the love of conserving wild places and the love of replacing single-use plastic. We love our planet and we own our responsibility to take care of it by doing everything we can to minimize our impacts and use our business as a force for good.


From the day we first opened our doors, compassionate sustainability has been at the heart of our bold business. It’s the reason and the promise behind our newest “Pledge for the Planet” Commitment, establishing us as a leader in cutting-edge corporate sustainability. By exchanging wasteful, single-use bags, utensils, and containers for high quality, long-lasting reusable products, we protect our planet from pollution and preserve its beauty for generations to come.
