The Gear List: these Earth Day deals have us seeing all kinds of green

Here’s to gear that’s good for our wallets and our planet.

We may earn revenue from the products available on this page and participate in affiliate programs.

Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical gear, outdoor equipment, and everything in between.

Today is Earth Day, and retailers are swinging big with deep discounts on some of our favorite products. We’re always sniffing around for good deals, and these Earth Day sales definitely piqued our interest.

Here’s the thing; none of us are going to stop consuming. Even if we live by the old “reduce, reuse, recycle” motto, humans just need stuff (although Amazon is encouraging shoppers to select pre-owned, used, and open-box products with a 20-percent discount or turn in used electronics for gift cards). What we can do is buy wisely. If you have the choice between a product that’s going to last a year and another that’s going to last a decade, the smart play is to buy the one that’s going to save you money in the long run. The same move will predictably also keep a whole bunch of disposable products out of the trash can.

Today, we’re also showcasing companies that commit to making gear that not only stands the test of time but minimizes its impact on the environment from a production standpoint, as well. If you need something on this list anyway, now is the time to make the considerate choice and get rewarded with a nice little discount.

These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
