Osprey Joins The Growing List Of Leading Outdoor Companies In Supporting The Himalayan Stove Project

Osprey Packs, the leading pack manufacturer based in Cortez, Colo., has become the latest outdoor gear manufacturer to support the Himalayan Stove Project (HSP).

“This support makes great sense for us – we have a strong connection to Nepal,” says Sam Mix, Osprey Conduit of Corporate Outreach. Mix continues, “Osprey and the HSP are a perfect match. As both a humanitarian and environmental cause, the HSP is consistent with our Philanthropic Five Areas of Focus: Public Lands Protection, Environmental Conservation/Stewardship, Trail Stewardship, Reducing Environmental Hazards, and Climate Change.”

Independent since 1974 and still anchored by the design genius of company founder and owner, Mike Pfotenhauer, Osprey Packs is a leader in technical packs for outdoor, cycling, travel and urban adventures. Osprey’s dedication to create innovative, high performance gear reflects the brand’s love of adventure and devotion to the outdoors.

Osprey Packs can be found online at www.ospreypacks.com and in outdoor specialty retailers in over 60 countries worldwide. 

Other outdoor industry sponsors of the HSP include adidas Outdoor, Kahtoola, Hilleberg the Tent Maker, Clothing Arts, Sea To Summit , The American Alpine Club, Allett Wallets and Luminaid.

Since 2010, the HSP has shipped over 4,100 fuel-efficient cookstoves to the remote mountainous communities of Nepal, helping to reduce Household Air Pollution (HAP), the cause of 4.3 million premature deaths annually worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

The HSP has impacted more than 40,000 people in Nepal since 2012, coupling the stoves distributed to date with the more than $100,000 in Earthquake Relief after the disastrous 2015 Nepal Earthquake – 40,000 people represents a sell-out crowd at each of more than a dozen Major League Baseball Stadiums.
