Are you a climbing enthusiast who is looking for ways to reduce your environmental impact? Do you want to climb with a clear conscience, knowing that you're not harming the planet? If so, you should consider using eco-friendly chalk for your climbing adventures. In this guide, we'll explore the benefits of using environmentally-friendly chalk, and why it's a great choice for climbers who want to make a positive impact on the planet.
If you're new to climbing, you may not be aware that traditional climbing chalk can have a negative impact on the environment. Most traditional climbing chalks contain magnesium carbonate, which is a mineral that is mined from the earth. The mining process can be harmful to the environment, as it can result in deforestation, habitat destruction, and other environmental problems. Additionally, traditional chalk can leave behind unsightly white marks on the rock, which can detract from the natural beauty of the climbing area.
What is Eco-Friendly Chalk?
Eco-friendly chalk can be seen as many things and most companies try to just tick a box so they can put eco friendly on the packet: some of these can include the packaging it is sold in, the manufacturing of the chalk, the refinement of the chalk and green washing (doing non of the above but donating to a eco charity).
At LowGravity climbing we try to tick as many of the above boxes as possible, for example: our chalk isn't mined its made from sea water, more specifically a private pool within the dead sea that is incredibly sustainable and no animals are harmed or habitats destroyed. our workshop is powered by renewable sources, our chalk packaging is just paper, we source this from a sustainable manufacturer. and we also plant a tree from every product sold.
Choosing eco-friendly chalk for your climbing adventures is a simple and effective way to reduce your environmental impact and climb with a clear conscience. By using chalk that is made from natural and sustainable materials, you can enjoy the benefits of climbing without harming the planet. So why not give eco-friendly chalk a try and see the difference it can make, check our our store to start your revolution?
