How did we start?
After witnessing the negative sides of the industry - environmental abuses, human rights violation, poverty & illness - Jess made it her personal mission to create an alternative type of clothing brand and to make a difference.
"Being a fashion designer & a rock climber, the road was clear as to how to go about it, so I started 3RD ROCK - an eco activewear brand for Climbers, Yogis and all active people out there."
As a certified designer and pattern cutter, she’s well prepared to redefine the outdoor style through what she calls ‘climbwear’ - a 3RD ROCK signature, clothes made specifically for rock climbing.
- 3RD ROCK = Planet earth - the 3rd 'rock' away from the Sun.
- 3RD ROCK = This amazing & beautiful playground...The great outdoors...
- 3RD ROCK = A planet in need of our help... be considerate... leave no trace!
'Our Planet, Our Playground'
- ENJOY - Make the most of your free time; go outside, have fun, get dirty, enjoy the fresh air, go for a walk, climb a cliff, cycle around the park, do some yoga on the beach or in a field, play hard, find freedom.
- PROTECT - Take your litter with you, re-use your plastic bags, wear organic cotton and buy local and seasonal produce. Be a person who makes those small changes to help our planet, even if you think that your actions alone will not change the world or make a difference. You are not alone and together we are making an impact.
