So rad to be featured in Outside Magazine's innovative August issue, the Encyclopedia of Gear: 
Billions of non-biodegradable microfibers from our clothing eventually make their way to our waterways, where they can have significant negative effects on aquatic ecosystems. Now that the problem has come to light, groups are rising up to seek a solution and hold clothing makers accountable.

Bringing the Adventure and Science Communities Together
Introduction

Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation was founded in January of 2011 with the understanding that many people traveling in the outdoors genuinely want to do more for the places they visit but often struggle with how to help. ASC exists to bridge this gap by pairing adventure athletes already traveling to some of the earth's most difficult­-to-­reach places with the scientists who need information from these areas. ASC also has the goal of creating unique and innovative learning experiences about science while also saving the scientific and conservation communities millions of dollars in data collection costs.
