Brookfield first collaborated with Joe in 2012 for its Fish with a Pro sweepstakes, part of the Wear It! Oswego campaign, said Shannon Ames, Brookfields director of community and stakeholder relations.Joe follows many of the same common-sense safety tips Brookfield encourages when hes fishing or hunting. We believe through this partnership, Joe and Brookfield can maximize our reach to more effectively convey the importance of the Wear It! water safety campaign. This is a tremendous opportunity to really help make a difference, said Thomas. Having fished professionally for close to 30 years I understand the importance of water safety which starts simply by wearing a life jacket. The 2013 season of Thomas Outdoor Channel series Stihls Reel in the Outdoors begins in July and will feature special public service announcements made possible by Brookfield.

“As we’ve become bigger, it’s only right that our industry is questioned,” Mark Held from the European Outdoor Group said on the sidelines of the Outdoor trade fair in Friedrichshafen. “A lot of these companies started out as just one person, they’re very entrepreneurial, but now they realize they can’t continue with the same practices.” Clothing retailers like H&M and Marks & Spencer have already agreed to make their clothing PFC-free. But many outdoor industry brands have said there are currently no PFC-free technologies that would continue to provide the same lasting level of weather protection, meaning more environmentally-friendly products are less effective. Family-owned Schoeffel, exhibiting at the fair, said it was working towards becoming PFC-free. Like brands such as Patagonia and Marmot, Schoeffel has cut back on some chemicals and is switching to compounds that have a six-carbon, rather than an eight-carbon chain, meaning they degrade more quickly. This means its new jackets and trousers – coming out next summer – will need to be treated for water and oil resistance after around 10-15 washes, compared with around 20 before.

Pair the denim shorts with a lace top and the trendiest pair of flat ankle boots that can be found to pull off a comfortable, yet cool look. To complete the look, add a pair of large round sunglasses and a large floral bag. With emphasizes on the large floral bag, just in case it rains, pull out a clear raincoat and swap out the flat ankle boots with a pair of tall rain boots. For the girly girl with a bit of an edge, pair a dress with a pair of gladiator sandals and a bowler hat. If it begins to rain layer the dress with a patterned rain coat and a pair of rain boots. If wearing a sporty maxi dress with fridges at the bottom is the plan, dress it up with colorful and vibrant accessories. Pair this type of dress with a bright pair of low top sneakers and if it may rain, have the bright colored rain coat ready and switch out the sneakers for a pair of ankle rain boots. Be sure to have a denim backpack to complete the look.

Following their success she recommended them to another mother whose child had the same condition, then she helped the two families make contact. Business goodwill is not all about sales, Lucy believes. It was her marketing degree that exposed her to the Puddle Jumpers clothing line. It was started by Sue Le Cren, a former Kekerengu mum who wanted gear that out-lasted her own children’s rough and tumble outdoor play. Lucy was helping her build a customer base when, three years ago, Sue decided to sell the business. Lucy hated the thought of a large company taking it over and removing the Marlborough link so she bought it. Retaining Sue’s original concept was important, too, and “Hand-me-downable” has become a favourite promo line. “We often hear from people who say we’re doing ourselves out of sales as the gear has done three-plus kids.
