Osprey expanded their office headquarters in Cortez， Colo. in 2007 with environmental performance playing a major role. Some of the notable features of their energy-efficient headquarters include innovations from waterless urinals in men’s rooms to recycled carpets； they even have ceiling tiles and insulation constructed of recycled blue jeans. Also used in the expansion were energy-saving， rotating skylights， reducing electricity usage in half.
Cortez， Colo.， March 13th， 2008 - Osprey Packs， and independent pack company loCATed in the high desert and mountains of Southwestern Colorado， was founded over 30 years ago with an unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship.
The project is part and parcel with Osprey‘s most recent achievement of reducing energy use and meeting 100 percent of their energy needs with renewable sources two years earlier than originally planned. Last year， the company fulfilled 70 percent of its energy needs with alternative energies such as wind， biomass conversion and small hydro.
In 2007， Osprey bridged that commitment into its product line with the ReSource series of packs， made from at least 70-percent recycled materials. The ReSource collection was the result of many years of sourcing research， and was a strong product introduction for the brand. Staying true to its goal of creating positive change through the company and its products， Osprey not only expanded the ReSource line for fall 2008， but also launched it with a sUCCessful fundraiser at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market， 2008， in Salt Lake City. The Resources in Jeopardy party was based on the fall 2008 ReSource pack colors， which are named after species or ecosystems in jeopardy.
Osprey Packs’ environmental and social responsibility practices run deep into the company‘s culture and， in addition to being a leader in making high-quality Backcountry， urban and travel packs， serve as a foremost defining characteristic of the brand. Osprey’s approach to environmental integrity is multi-faceted and includes many other elements， from sustainable travel initiatives to their ReSource series of recycled packs.
“Contestants had a chance to demonstrate their knowledge of the ReSource endangered species and ecosystems and the fabulous organizations dedicated to saving them，” says Osprey marketing director Gareth Martins. “Thanks to their participation， and our dedication to donating portions of the ReSource series sales to these organizations， we can continue to support and preserve these delicate ecosystems.”

The Resources in Jeopardy party at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market raised $1，200 for six non-profits in just an hour and a half. The donations were split between the six organizations based on the donors’ preferences， and the entire dollar amount raised went to the six charities.
