Eagle Creek Promotes Responsible Travel for the Holidays


Eagle Creek, a leading maker of travel gear, announced an in-store promotion celebrating responsible travel. From November 1 through December 31, 2008, Eagle Creek and Lonely Planet have partnered in giving away a copy of Lonely Planet's book, Code Green: Experiences of a Lifetime with the purchase of an Eagle Creek wheeled item at participating retail locations.

Offering Code Green to customers enables Eagle Creek to reach the contentious traveler with the goal of contributing to a new kind of travel culture. Eagle Creek and Lonely Planet believe the places we visit should benefit from our presence, whether because of money directed to the right people, or because of the visit in some way.

Encouraging responsible travel practices is an extension of Eagle Creek's rich heritage. From assisting those less fortunate through their annual food drive - donating up to 80% of the yearly requirement for North San Diego County Food Bank and helping families put food on their tables. To supporting organizations like The Conservation Alliance, The Outdoor Industry Association, The Escondido Creek Conservancy, Outdoor Outreach and Friends of the River.
