Duluth Pack’s 5th Annual Arbor Day Campaign


Duluth Pack is proud to announce the return of their Arbor Day Campaign for its fifth consecutive year. In partnership with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Duluth Pack has properly planted nearly 20,000 saplings in Northern Minnesota forests. These planting sites include along the Northshore, Cloquet, MN, and Wrenshall, MN. Duluth Pack has planted a variety of species depending on the needs of the planting location, but many of the saplings are the white pine species. The white pine is a tree that is beneficial to the Minnesota region and needed in many planting sites. This is due to the white pines’ population numbers were significantly reduced historically due to the pressures put on this genus by the lumber industry, people, and wildlife – in particular deer.

“Past projects have helped restore the iconic eastern white pine to the landscape and diversify our ash forests, making them more resilient to the invasive emerald ash borer. This partnership gives back to Minnesota’s forests and celebrates the importance of trees,” said Mike Reinikainen, Silviculture Program Coordinator with the DNR.

Duluth Pack’s Sustainability Promise

Sustainability is a trend taking over our feeds and the world. To limit it to just a trend, however, might be a little reductive. For over a century, Duluth Pack products have been built to last a lifetime.

One common issue with sustainable living is maintaining quality goods that can live with you, through thick and thin. Because our bags are made with the highest quality materials that are built to last, and can be repaired if needed, a well-maintained Duluth Pack is a great sustainability tool.

Sustainable materials are another focus for eco-focused living. Duluth Pack’s classic packs are built with durable cotton-duck canvas, a renewable plant source of fabric. Unlike Synthetic and semi-synthetic materials like polyester and nylon, canvas does not need petroleum and other fossil fuel derivatives to be created. This makes it better for the environment, both as a renewable resource and as a low-emission material.
