CleanUp at Women's Bouldering Event 2021

The first thing you've got to know about a clean-up is that you don't do a clean-up after a clean-up... Yes, there was something remarkable during our CleanUp event in Bleau during the Women's Bouldering Event on 17 September; Elephant climbing area was pristine! Yet, there was enough to do for the 20 volunteers who showed up for our joint clean-up with ace climber Tiba Vroom from Wildflower Climbing!

Cobblers, that's where the shoe pinches

Every year we bin around 80,000 kilograms of climbing shoes into waste bins. What happens to this waste is that it mostly goes to landfills or is simply incinerated. This, we believe, is ridiculous. We believe that's a cycle of consumerism we can change for the better, but that's not something we can do by ourselves. We need to work together with the entire supply chain.


Can we handle climbing shoes more sustainably?
