In honor of Earth Day, we are celebrating some of our favorite outdoor websites. We are Montanans after all! These bloggers and editors share their passion for getting us outside while educating us on trends and news within the outdoor industry. They are all badass women too! Read on, and get outside this Earth Day!
Dirtbag Darling is an online adventure journal, one half dispatches from the wild and one half interviews with outdoor advocates working toward a great good, pursuing the unprofitable, conquering the useless, and most importantly defending the fun. The creator, Johnie Gall seems like a chick we would love to get a beer with and talk all things outdoors. We always visit her site when we want to get inspired for travel plans and we love her amazing outdoor photography.

She Explores is a website for inquisitive women in the outdoors and on the road. The founding editor in chief, Gale Straub, "has the goal of making She Explores a growing resource for the creative outdoors woman." She has featured over 200 women's stories and artwork. She even featured Jelt on her "Stay Equipped" section where she highlighted our sustainable and charitable efforts and how they align with outdoor fashion. We love connecting with other women who are inspired by time spent outside and She Explores is one of our favorite blogs to find that inspiration!

Jelt recently created an official "Yellowstone National Park Belt" which will launch in the parks late Spring 2017 so this blog is extra special to us. Wilderness Babes is an adventure collective of outdoor women supporting the National Park Foundation through inspiration, outreach, and community. This support helps to protect and maintain our national parks, connect people to them, and inspire adventure enthusiasts to treat our parks with the respect they deserve. Awesome! Keep an eye out for our Official Yellowstone Park belt this May!

The Egg Out West-
We love this mountain town blog out of Jackson Hole, WY and it's creator, Meagan Murtagh. Meag celebrates the mountain living lifestyle in her blog, The Egg Out West and helps to promote brands within as well as outside of her Jackson Hole community. Her blog posts help aid you visually whether you are looking for style inspiration for travel, play, outdoor activities or sustainable efforts. She recently took one of our Jelts on a cross country ski day in Grand Teton National Park and is now one of our favorite Jelters! Make sure to check out her blog for more of her fun posts and a virtual tour of the great town of Jackson Hole!

At Jelt, we know a few things about making comfortable products that support active lifestyles. This a big reason why we love Title Nine and their outdoor and athletic apparel for women that moves from work to workout to weekend with ease. They also have a similar business philosophy to Jelt in which they focus on sustainability and support their growth with their own, internal resources. The catalogs they send are all recyclable and are made from a renewable resource (the wood they use for their paper pulp comes from sustainably-managed forests and is independently certified by the Forest Stewardship Council). They have also been celebrating women in the outdoors for years and are just a rad company all around!

We hope these resources inspire you to get outside this Earth Day and take in everything that this beautiful planet has to offer!
