A Mindful Approach
By staying at Under Canvas, you take part in our mission to inspire connections with extraordinary places, people, and the planet by enhancing access to the outdoors.
Connection with nature makes us healthier, happier ambassadors of the environment; our most precious commodity. This manifests in the design choices we make and the experiences we curate for our guests. Here are some of the ways we uphold our mission:
Pioneering the outdoor hospitality space, we employ thoughtful enhancements across our camps designed to elevate the guest experience — through curated adventure programming, culinary innovation, and localized design aesthetic that reflects the surrounding natural environment.
UNPLUG AND RECHARGE
Wifi is intentionally not offered to our guests so that they can disconnect from technology and reconnect with others. New for 2022, guests can recharge their electric vehicles with Rivian Waypoints chargers at select locations.
Guests will notice some design features throughout camp that go a long way towards sustainably preserving the great outdoors — pull chain showers, faucets that automatically shut off, low-flow toilets, and a towel reuse program. Accordingly, our camps use significantly less water and energy than a hotel of a similar size. Additionally, low-level lighting is used throughout camps, mitigating light pollution and amplifying the night sky.
Under Canvas camps are designed to minimize disturbance and maximize open space, each with dedicated, undisturbed green spaces. Land donations, adaptive use and sustainability, and partnerships with local conservation organizations are also part of our commitment.
IN GOOD COMPANY
We partner with brands who share the same care for our planet, including plant-based EO®️ bath products made in a zero-waste facility, West Elm furnishings that support sustainable initiatives, and lululemon, who committed to 100% renewable electricity for their owned and operated facilities.
Under Canvas’ Mindful Approach ethos is further demonstrated through our partnership with The Nature Conservancy:
As lovers of the outdoors and the beautiful lands that surround our camps, Under Canvas has joined forces with The Nature Conservancy, a global environmental nonprofit working to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends, to help fund conservation and raise awareness through education, volunteer efforts, and donation programs. Working together to educate on the dual threats of the climate crisis and extreme loss of biodiversity, Under Canvas is building on our mission to inspire connections with extraordinary places, people, and the planet by enhancing access to the outdoors.
- Under Canvas guests are invited to join in the brand’s mission, as well as support conservation by donating $1, $3, or $5 to The Nature Conservancy upon check-in.
- Under Canvas now offers an employee giveback program for all company employees to donate to The Nature Conservancy a paycheck value of their choosing.
- Employees across all 10 camps and corporate offices in Denver and Bozeman will have the opportunity to volunteer in and around some of the country’s most beautiful national parks, as well as at some of The Nature Conservancy’s more than 700 preserves across the country.
