Explore Red
Explore Red is a fully funded Peoplework initiative partnered with Leeds University. Explore Red is a six year product sustainability programme that researches the practical durability of outdoor gear. The idea behind Explore Red is to promote the re-use of functional but redundant outdoor gear to those who need it but cannot afford to buy equipment or to those unfortunate people in areas that have been hit by natural disasters.

We are in the final stages of the research and are currently analysing the final data before publishing the results. We are also exploring how best to collect redundant outdoor gear and distribute it to those who need it.
