Weekends with road trips, cabin stays and camping are in full swing and won’t slow down as the seasons change. Like a river to the ocean I was drawn to Lake and Company because of the work that goes into selecting products that have deeper stories. Each partner with Lake and Company cares, keeping in mind conservation, sustainability, social good and innovation. It was easy to dive into this role with the team’s passionate energy, and I am excited to share my favorite products and brands with you to take on your next adventure.

Collapsible Dog Bowl – $24 (United By Blue)
Traveling with pets can be tough — but finding the right products can make it all that easier. Made from recycled polyester, this collapsible dog bowl will last you and your four-legged friend many years of adventure together. United By Blue is “making waves” by removing millions of pounds of trash from oceans and waterways, which means you can feel good about purchasing their products.
Tumbler 2-Pack – $50 (High Camp Flasks)
High Camp Flasks is paving the way for transporting your favorite beverages on any adventure. Their products use stainless steel instead of plastic because it is infinitely recyclable and doesn’t impart any unwanted flavors. Grab this 2-pack of tumblers with a wool-felt carrying case that will allow you to enjoy your hard-earned spirits whether you’re sipping lakeside or camping up north.
Orange Blossom Lip Balm – $9.95 (Poppy & Pout)
I don’t know about you, but my lips need all the hydration after a long day in the sun. This lip balm is hand poured at Poppy & Pout headquarters in Idaho and made from 100% natural ingredients. Plus, you can recycle the cardboard tube when finished. We love sustainability!
Waterproof Playing Cards – $10 (NOD Products)
NOD Products caught my eye, specifically because they are locally based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and are women owned (hell yeah!). These playing cards are made from durable, recycled plastic that repels liquids so they won’t stick together and are easy to sanitize. Toss them in your bag for your next outing.
Tepic Shorts – $60 (KAVU)
Great for bike rides, hiking or happy hour. KAVU made these quick-dry mid-rise shorts for those who are busy living that outdoor lifestyle. These shorts are adaptable for moments when you need to look a little cleaned up coming off an afternoon of kayaking. Be sure to check out the three other colors we carry these shorts in.
Hike More Worry Less Tee – $22 (Rivet Apparel Co.)
Handmade in Indianapolis, Rivet Apparel Co. specializes in “outfitting the next generation of trailblazers and world changers.” All of their tees are hand printed, using high-quality, nontoxic ink, so you can feel good about what your kids are wearing!
Ziggy Ankle Socks – $14 (Hippy Feet)
Talk about feeling good with each purchase! Hippy Feet donates 50% net profits to nonprofit organizations serving young people experiencing homelessness. These ankle socks are made in the USA from super-soft eco-friendly organic cotton and can assist you on your next hiking adventure.
