Lafuma: growing community to raise awareness of environmental protection
Marco Tomasello, volcanological guide and trekking enthusiast, joins the Lafuma community with a dream: to educate to live the mountain in a sustainable and conscious way.
Lafuma, the Millet Mountain Group brand specialized in the production of clothing, footwear and accessories with the lowest environmental impact for nature and travel lovers, strengthens the Outdoor Sentinels project, the initiative that offers the opportunity to join a community of outdoor enthusiasts who want to share their adventures and at the same time raise awareness of protection and respect for the environment.
And it does so by involving Marco Tomasello, a volcanological guide and a great fan of trekking and travel, in the community. Born on the slopes of the volcano Etna – Mongibello as he likes to call it – Marco loves to travel the world on skis in search of the most powdery snow, he is a great fan of trekking and is the organizer of the Sicily Volcano Trail. “I’m a real mountain sick person and the passion in my life is to make trekking trips in search of volcanoes. Indonesia, Costa Rica, Japan, China, Iceland … these are the destinations where I study and enrich my knowledge of the mountains alive – says Marco Tomasello – “In recent years I have tried to combine my love for the mountains and travel with respect for nature trying to make trips with low environmental impact. Joining the Lafuma Outdoor Sentinels community represents a great opportunity for me to promote initiatives during my travels to make the local community aware of respect for the environment and an eco-compatible lifestyle”.
Who are the Lafuma Outdoor Sentinels? They are men and women with a passion – walking, meditating, travelling and photographing, on foot or by bike, alone, with friends around a bonfire or in a camper van with family. They call into question responsibility for the environment, but they also awaken our dreams, inspire us and invite us to go on new adventures together. With one mantra: leave only positive vibrations behind!
