EcoSki, the one-stop shop for sustainable skiwear, has launched “The Big Give” auction in the run up to the Winter Olympics in February 2022. Funds raised will go towards the charities it supports through its partnership with 1% for the Planet — including Protect Our Winters UK, Ghost Finishing UK, Root and Branch Out and Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.

The auction has a series of “rolling lots”, so new options are being added all the time, with 125 days left to bid on an outfit worn by EcoSki ambassador Chemmy Alcott on Ski Sunday (to be donated at the end of this season), 28 days left to bid on a day’s ski touring with Scottish skiers Iain Innes, Protect Our Winters Carbon Literacy Training for two people and a hamper of Salcombe Gin.

EcoSki offers a carefully curated selection of ski and snowboard clothing and accessories for men, women and children, all hand-picked from brands with the highest social and environmental credentials. It also offers a skiwear rental service in partnership with MYWARDROBE HQ, as well as a repair service and re-selling platform to help “close the loop” and prolong the life of hard-wearing winter kit and offer a more sustainable way to enjoy winter sports.

EcoSki founder Rachael Westbrook says: “I got the idea for the jumblebee auction from an equestrian one that was hosted last year, where my sister (TeamGB event rider Nicola Wilson) was a prize. My aim with it is to help support our chosen charities financially as well as gently encourage people to think about their everyday choices and the implications they have.

“I have huge admiration for the frontline workers at the non-profits — they’re all an inspiration and I have been blown away by people’s generosity when donating prices and of course bidding — it’s a real team effort and just goes to show that collaboration really is key.”
