1. Timbuk2 Hemp/PET Bag
Hemp is durable, grows fast without pesticides, and looks great blended with recycled polyester in this classic messenger bag. $150;

2. Pacific Outdoor Eco Thermo 6
From its bamboo insulation to the recycled aluminum valve to the dye-free fabric, this carbon-neutral sleeping pad lets you sleep with a clean conscience. $150;

3. Big Agnes Battle Mountain
Heated bamboo creates charcoal, which is then used to make a synthetic fiber, which in turn makes up the insulation on the bottom of this bag (down fill, also sustainable, is used on top). -15°F; $289;

4. Patagonia Eco Rain Shell
Both the outer layers and lining of this jacket are made of 100 percent recycled polyester. $190;

5. Patagonia Finn
