Mountain Runner Hats
These mountain runner hats were hand knit for our special partner - a local conservation NGO (cordilleraconservationtrust.ph) that works in the same region as we do. They work to reforest our mountains by building seedling nurseries in remote schools and by organizing outdoor events in remote communities - both to build an economy around keeping their environment pristine, and by bringing outdoor athletes and enthusiasts (who then become advocates themselves) to these places. They run an annual trail running event in March called the Cordillera Mountain Ultra where these hats are sold.
Our community of women will be earning from making the hats, while the proceeds from the sale will be going to the Cordillera Conservation Trust's envriomental programs.
It's definitely a win-win!
*Please note these hats are only available by special order and will take about 2 weeks before delivery.
