LAKE-INSPIRED APPAREL | SUPERIOR COMFORT.
×

Here at GL, we love the great outdoors. The lakes we grew up on hold a special place in our hearts and we want to help preserve that for future generations to come. So, we’ve created The Freshwater Initiative. An ongoing and collaborative campaign to partner with different organizations tackling different issues that ultimately help preserve our beautiful lakes. Supporting our mission is easy:

Every year we’ll select a new organization to partner with. We’ll create limited edition products and launch them seasonally on our website. For every product sold, we’ll donate at least 20% of sales. You get sweet gear while supporting different causes that hit close to home for all of us here in the North.
