Ambleside event backs Oboz scheme


Oboz Footwear has planted a tree for every pair of Oboz sold since 2007 as part of its commitment to the environment, amounting to more than two million trees and has organised a ‘Get Rooted’ event in Ambleside (23rd November 2019) in the Lake District in conjunction with Small Woods.

The event will feature:

  • A talk from woodland charity partner Small Woods on the benefits of re-forestation and a tutorial on how to plant trees.
  • Volunteers will be planting trees in the surrounding area of Skiddaw House as part of an ongoing reforestation project with Cumbria Woodlands. Surrounded by mountains, with no other building in sight, Skiddaw House is an iconic Lake District site and participants will enjoy a 3.5 mile walk to the site.
  • Post tree-planting all volunteers will be invited back to SR Cunningham’s store in Ambleside for a hot drink and refreshments sourced by local Deli Rattle & Ghyll. All participants will also receive a 10 per cent discount off all full price Oboz instore and some exclusive Oboz footwear items.
