The much-anticipated Local’s Sale is Osprey’s biannual fundraiser for local, community nonprofits. Osprey donates a percentage of all proceeds from the one-day special sale to organizations carefully vetted and selected by the company’s volunteer led Green Team.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their support in making both the Locals’ Sale and Osprey itself a resounding success,” says Osprey Marketing Outreach Manager Sam Mix. “Osprey is proud to be a part of this great community, supporting efforts to make it a better place for all and we like to give back whenever possible.”

Proceeds from the Spring Locals’ Sale benefitted CASA of the Four Corners and The Cortez Cultural Center. Funds raised this fall were donated to The Four Corners Recycling Initiative to aid in their efforts working with local schools to build a plastics recycling pilot program in rural Montezuma County, CO. 

“FCRI is very grateful to accept this generous donation from Osprey as a result of their successful Fall Locals' sale,” said Lisa Roche, Board of Directors, Four Corners Recycling Initiative. “We are happy to announce that we will be using the donation to support local high schools in their pilot program to recycle plastics # 1 and 2. The efforts we will be supporting include bins for commodity collection, transporting the commodities, and education.”

About Osprey Packs

Independent since 1974 and still anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs has long set the standard for creating innovative, high quality gear carrying equipment. The collection includes packs and bags designed to help adventurers enjoy their outdoor, biking, active everyday and travel pursuits.

The location of company headquarters in Cortez, Colorado, near the rugged San Juan Mountains on the edge of desert canyon country, provides a constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for Osprey products. Osprey also maintains a product development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, near the factories where they manufacture their products, ensuring face-to-face relationships and transparency with their suppliers. In 2009, Osprey opened a design office in Mill Valley, California, a hub of design talent and the birthplace of mountain biking. All three of these offices play a crucial role in creating Osprey gear that lasts a lifetime.

Osprey’s customers identify with the brand in many ways, including the product lifetime All Mighty Guarantee, category leading sales, worldwide distribution, dynamic social media communications and content, a strong commitment to the environment and partnerships with inspiring and interesting organizations. Above all, the brand encourages and maintains a direct line of communication on product performance, durability and functionality, which is then incorporated and reflected in every future Osprey pack.
