Our Mission

To inspire a more sustainable and equitable world through innovative products

At GreenGear, we recognize the responsibility we all have to interact with the environment in a more sustainable way. We're on a mission to help outdoor events & venues switch to more sustainable products. To do so, we are dedicated to creating products that drive positive environmental and social impact, all without compromising on price or quality.


Our Story


In 2016, as a sophomore in college, I grew increasingly troubled by the negative environmental impacts of disposable petroleum-based products. As a sports fan, traveler and lover of the outdoors, I recognized ponchos as a disposable product particularly in need of improvement. After years of research, I designed the EcoRain® Poncho, which is made using sugarcane ethanol, a more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastic.

Today, GreenGear is committed to creating impactful products, pushing environmental and social initiatives however we can, and donating a portion of our annual sales to organizations dedicated to improving the environment.
