Parks Project Debuts National Geographic Collaboration

Parks Project Collaborates with National Geographic on Apparel and

Accessories Collection Launching October 9
Parks Project has joined forces with the iconic adventure and exploration brand to
commemorate America’s National Parks

Parks Project, a California-based outdoor lifestyle brand, has joined forces with National Geographic to release a limited collection that features vintage National Geographic photos to commemorate and celebrate our National Parks. The collection features stunning National Geographic photos from its storied archives, displaying some of the country’s most beloved parklands — parks that are also in vital need of protection and conservation.

 

The 11-piece capsule collection of apparel and goods displays some of our country’s most beloved parklands – parks that are also in vital need of protection and conservation. All purchases from the Nat Geo x Parks Project collection will support the nonprofit National Geographic Society to fund work in the areas of science, exploration, conservation and education.


“At Parks Project we live by the mantra ‘leave it better than you found it,’” said Parks Project Co-Founder

Keith Eshelman. “It is incredibly important to us that in all of our collaborations we partner with
organizations that not only respect this mission, but share these similar values. National Geographic is
the most ideal partner in both of these senses. We’re looking forward to not only growing our Parks
Project reach within the National Geographic conservation community, but also to helping introduce the
spectacular offerings of the National Geographic brand to a fresh generation of park enthusiasts.”
In addition to rare and special collaborations like this one, modern lifestyle brand Parks Project designs

classic apparel for men, women and children, along with outdoor accessories and home goods. Proceeds
from these purchases contribute to 30 U.S. National Parks, funding numerous projects such as habitat
restoration, animal conservation, educational initiatives and enhanced visitor services. To date, Parks

Project has contributed more than $250,000 to park conservancies and logged more than 1,000 volunteer
hours in parks.
“Over one hundred years ago, National Geographic was instrumental in helping persuade the government
to create the National Park Service,” said Brendan Ripp, EVP, Corporate Partnerships, National

Geographic Partners. “Since then, our commitment to raising the public’s awareness of the importance
and beauty of America’s National Parks has been unwavering. We have leveraged the power of our
storytelling platforms to bring attention to these irreplaceable places through ongoing, dedicated parks
content across our print, digital, broadcast and social channels. Partnering with Parks Project on this
collection is a natural extension of these efforts and will help fund the nonprofit National Geographic.

Society’s work it has been doing in support of our National Parks around science, exploration, conservation and education.”

 
The National Geographic x Parks Project capsule collection will launch on October 9, 2018, and will be

available through the 2018 holiday season on www.parksproject.us . It is also available via National
Geographic’s exclusive pre-sale going on now at www.shopng.com .
