LIGHTING THE WORLD,
LOWERING OUR IMPACT
We provide apparel for the champions of sustainability, helping you invest in sustainable infrastructure through the purchase of any of our apparel.
Step3project was started with the belief that the world we live in is not only our home but our playground. As the founder, Tristan's upbringing in Northern British Columbia has built a foundation of appreciation for the activities and opportunities the outdoors have to offer. It also offered a first-hand experience of receding glaciers, dwindling fish populations, and exposure to landscape scarring. We owe it to future generations to preserve the rustic beauty so they can experience it first hand and not in history books. It is time for us to take responsibility for the effects of the industrial revolution and start revolutionizing sustainability.
is to provide 3 watts of sustainable electricity for every sale, which is enough to power a lightbulb for life.
To accomplish this we...
Our apparel sales fund future projects.
Develop Sustainable Infrastructure
We use the money raised from apparel to undertake sustainble projects, with the goal of installing 3 watts of infrastructure for every piece of apparel sold.
Create a platform to provide access to information about sustainable energy
Replacing old lightbulbs with new LED lights can reduce your power usage by up to 70%. Reducing power consumption is key to sustainability, the less energy you use, the less energy you need to make!
Solar panels generate electricity using energy from the sun, which is an inherently renewable source. These are best paired with batteries so you can use the electricity when the sun isn't shining.
Hydro uses the power of falling water to spin a generator to generate electricity. One option is to create a dam to form a reservoir or to take a portion of river water, run it through a turbine and then return the water to ther river downstream.
Windmills harness the wind to spin a turbine which generates electricity. Like solar, these are best paired with batteries so you can use the electricity when the wind isn't blowing.
The Effects of your Purchase
One shirt offsets the energy use of...
Loads of laundry
Hours of light
Pieces of toast
The funds raised with every sale will be used to install infrastructure that will sustainably offset electricity used in your everyday life. Learn the details here!
Now, more than ever, we need to start investing in our world's future. It is our hope that we can set ourselves apart by accompanying Step3 products with the chance for consumers to have a direct effect on the environment. Each individual contribution may be small, but there are few things that can stop the power of a crowd.
