Are you an outdoor enthusiast looking for the perfect holiday gift to give back this season? Trails 2000 is excited to launch our Online Holiday Store that gives locals and visitors a unique way to give chic, handmade, functional gifts while supporting their beloved trails and natural lands this holiday season.
Featuring high quality products and local designs, the store captures the essence of the area, including holiday cards with natural, mountain graphics printed locally on a handmade letterpress; photo cards showcasing the beautiful imagery of the Southwest; commemorative posters of iconic local trails such as the Colorado Trail; adult and youth tees and hats with favorite local trail slogan, Happy Trails; and more. Each product is reflective of Trails 2000’s mission to plan, build and maintain trails—which all proceeds go to support—and appeals to supporters both native to Colorado and across the U.S.
“Whether you’re looking for beautiful letterpress holiday cards for friends and family, a poster to commemorate your hike on the Colorado Trail, or stylish Happy Trails logo tees for kids and adults alike, our online store is the place to make a feel-good purchase knowing your gift helps to build and maintain our trails and sustain a trail network for generations to come,” said Mary Monroe Brown, executive director of Trails 2000.
The easy-to-use online store is one way Trails 2000 aims to diversify funding. For the most part access to trails is free, but all trail construction, maintenance and planning has a cost. In Southwest Colorado, a widely visited tourist destination, locals have long ranked the abundance of trails as their number one want and need for living in and visiting the area, making Durango’s trails a highly used resource by both the community and tourists.
“Our new fundraising option celebrates our mission to plan, build and maintain trails by providing beautiful gifting options. All proceeds from the store go to support our mission, and we hope people will support us and visit our online store for their holiday gifts this season,” said Monroe Brown.
Trails 2000 further diversifies funding and global reach by housing select products on global search engine giant, Amazon. According to recent data, up to 80 percent of online product searches take place on Amazon.com, which provides extensive global reach to the trail organization. You can also give to Trails 2000 through AmazonSmile, which donates a portion of Amazon purchases to the organization by encouraging consumers to shop through a unique link to make product purchases on Amazon at no additional cost to consumer.
