What is it?
It's a stepping stone movement that only asks you to strive towards being better than who you were yesterday.
Ask yourself, "Am I thinking about what condition I leave the places I visit? And am I interacting with nature in a way that's not harmful, or better yet, one that has a positive impact?"
All it takes to achieve this is being open to simple changes and understandings that are easy to learn and integrate into your life.
With these small strides in the right direction, we will collectively have an immensely positive impact on the world. To enjoy nature is both a right and a privilege. So we must be willing to change the way we view and interact with the outdoors. Please leave knowing that this is not just a call to action, but a call to consciousness. We must change how we think so we can change how we act. And when we change how we act, we can begin to exist ethically.

10% of our profits are currently being donated to COVID-19 relief.
We normally donate 5% of our profits to organizations that do conservation work on-the-ground. This is part of our program to offset any potential traffic Dynamite Starfish might inspire to get outdoors. We currently partner with the Access Fund.
In the past, we have partnered with the Friends of Joshua Tree, the Friends of the Inyo, American Safe Climbing Association, The American Himalayan Foundation, and Planned Parenthood. We still collaborate with these non-profits from time to time.
Dynamite Starfish also offers pro-bono graphic design services to organizations that partner with us to raise awareness about outdoor ethics education and safe climbing.
Our Base Apparel
Ethical treatment of all people is something we have been advocates of since the first day of business. Our base apparel all come from Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified factories.
WRAP is a globally recognized, independent third party certifying body whose mission is to promote ethical, humane, and lawful conditions and practices in all manufacturing facilities.
Companies accepted into the WRAP organization go through an extensive application process in which manufacturing facilities, working environments, and workers’ rights are inspected and approved by the WRAP association. WRAP certifications are awarded based upon both internationally and nationally accepted humane workplace standards, local laws, and ethical manufacturing regulations.
Most of our apparel is screen printed by the artist & founder at a public print shop in Los Angeles, CA. When we need help with larger screen printing projects, we hire from within the climbing community or support local artists and artisans.
Some of our apparel is printed by a third party and sent directly to the customer from their location. This process reduces waste on our end and relieves us from overstocking.
