Escapod Partners with Tread Lightly! to Promote Responsible Recreation

By Victoria CavazosJanuary 21, 2022

We are thrilled to announce that Escapod is now partnering with Tread Lightly!, a Utah-based nonprofit dedicated to responsible motorized recreation in the great outdoors. We love taking our teardrop trailers off-road all over the country and are committed to the Tread Lightly! mission to keep trails and parks open for generations to come. Together, we’ll spread awareness and get our hands dirty to keep local waters and campgrounds clean.

About Tread Lightly!

Launched in 1985 by the US Forest Service, Tread Lightly! has been leading meaningful wilderness projects and creating helpful educational tools for the community for decades. Executive Director, Matt Caldwell, gave us a warm welcome to their team of official partners. “Thank you to Escapod for coming on board and supporting responsible off-roading. We’re very excited to have an off-road trailer company showing their commitment to keeping trails open.”

Here at Escapod, we’ve been enthusiastic volunteers at local environmental events and have always left our campsites better than we found them. Escapod employees are especially looking forward to working with Tread Lightly! to coordinate a high-impact project near our headquarters in Coalville, Utah sometime in 2022.

All Escapod Ambassadors, both Pod Guides and Trailblazers, will be automatically signed up as Tread Lightly! members, so they can represent our shared values on the road and online.

The Escapod team is proud to share our commitment to caring for the beautiful public lands we love so much. We look forward to all we can achieve together as we contribute to Tread Lightly!’s stewardship and education missions. Co-founder, Jen Hudak, says it best: “Escapod is all about adventure, and without trail access, the adventures stop. We are very proud to support Tread Lightly!’s education and stewardship efforts that keep our public lands accessible and off-road trails open.” With these two passionate organizations joining forces, we know good things are to come.
