Enjoy the Outdoors Sustainably
We believe organizations have the responsibility to help customers reduce their environmental impact in as many ways as possible. Due to this belief, we founded Foryst with the goal of creating a company that proves it is possible to marry profits with purpose. Our vision of providing a peer-to-peer platform that allows individual outdoor enthusiasts and outdoor-related shops to rent their gear to customers creates a sharing environment that benefits us all, including the environment.
Reducing Carbon Footprint
With this platform, we aim to connect customers with the person in their neighborhood who has the gear they need for their adventure. By renting from someone nearby, our customers spend less time driving to pick up their gear from a brick-and-mortar rental location, which reduces the amount of carbon they emit from driving around to pick up items. By renting gear that they otherwise would have used once or twice, our customers also reduce the likelihood that they would end up throwing the gear out, which would ultimately end up in a landfill. Instead, outdoor enthusiasts are able to share their gear and earn money to spend on their next outdoor adventure. It’s a win-win for everyone.
One Rental = One Tree
While we love that sharing gear reduces waste and helps connect new people to the outdoors, we want to take our impact a step further. That’s why we partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every one of Foryst’s orders. As you can tell by our name, we love trees and their amazing ability to absorb the carbon in our atmosphere. We know most of our customers are using fuel to drive to parks for outdoor adventures, and through planting a tree for each order, we help reduce their carbon impact, making it easier to enjoy the outdoors with a clean conscience.
