The best thing about working at Glow Workwear is: We make gear for people who work outside. We specialize in the softest work pants, and believe strongly in pockets. We believe this sends the right message to the brain. You belong here. Your work matters. And, damn, you will have the right-sized pockets in the right places.
When we’re not working, we’re: recreating outside (skiing, mtn biking, camping, hiking), working outside (wrangling chickens, planting gardens, building fence, driving tractors) and encouraging, begging and incentivizing kids to do any and all.
What we’re reading: The Buddha Walks into a Bar, Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, The One Thing
What we’re listening to: Becoming by Michelle Obama, Brave Not Perfect Podcast by Reshma Saujani, The Garyvee Audio experience (all of is swearings is oddly motivating), Some Wyoming-specific friends: The Right to Roam and Out There podcast, and Wyoming Morning Music.
If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: Nom-nom Snacks or Is That Safe?
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: The world is better when shared. People aren’t scary. A world without diversity in people is scary.
Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: More types of people are respected and welcomed at the intersection of blue-collar and outdoor conservation work. We can fund other outdoor entrepreneurs to launch their own products.
