As a society, we cast votes daily. Our time and our dollars speak volumes about what matters to us. At Deso, the team spends much of our time recreating in nature and our dollars on goods that ethically align with our values. In an effort to build community around Earth (every) Day, we’re encouraging people to vote for the planet during the week of 4/22-4/26. Full details here.
Clean up a favorite section of a river, introduce friends to your favorite trail run, pledge to ban single-use plastics, take an hour to learn about the impact our actions have on climate change. Whatever activity it may be, post about it on Instagram or Facebook using #👁earthed.
Those who use the hashtag and show their love for Earth will receive a discount on our USA-made products and our special edition spin on the “I Voted” sticker with their order.
For Reno and Tahoe locals, Deso will host a week of events that emphasize conservation, awareness, and appreciation. All event attendees will receive the #👁earthed sticker.

About Deso: Inspired by the Sierra Nevada and made in small batches in the USA, Deso was founded in 2016 and is the art form of getting lost. That art form translated into a project that ripened in Desolation Wilderness – a shamanic trip through the vast nothingness shared with a crew of DIY-minded wild spirits digging into anything that isn’t standard. Deso combines the frustrations of a whole generation that demands authenticity. The brand finds resolve in a cool cocktail of design, nature, and travel, resulting in designs that provide function-driven daily wearability. #wayoutthere
