Update: Learn more about the Antiquities Act and the continual threat by Utah congressman to attempt to rescind Bear's Ears in the NYT. Get involved and make your voice heard here to save Bear's Ears and our all our treasured public lands!

Our story began when Bedrock founders Nick + Dan met while doing AmeriCorps conservation fieldwork together in Northern CA. Bound by our love of public lands, wild places, and the adventures we have on them, we committed and joined 1% For The Planet the day we opened our doors for business. 

As a small and growing outdoor brand, we strive to make decisions promoting environmentally conscious and socially responsible business practices. The conservation of public land is an essential component to our core values and to the outdoor industry itself. For this reason Bedrock Sandals will not be attending Outdoor Retailer this year in effort to make our voice heard over Utah's attempts to rescind Bears Ears Monument. We applaud and thank Patagonia, Arc'teryx, Polartec, Peak Design, Kokopelli, and many more brands for leading the charge to oppose Utah's legislation.

In 2017 and immediate years to follow our national parks will come under attack by D. Trump’s goal to weaken the EPA. So yes, by any means ,fight the attempt to drill for oil/gas, dig for coal etc.

This post makes it seem like the Utah legislators are continual threat to conservation. This seems like an exaggeration to me. Most of Bears Ears land was protected before becoming a national monument, and Utah already has a relatively high amount of protected or federally controlled land.

It seems to me that other states should catch-up with Utah before everyone throws such a fit about an 11th hour decision by a president to increase federal control over land in Utah.
