Our Tripping Roots Story


Welcome to the world of Tripping Roots, where we believe that adventure and environmental consciousness go hand in hand. We are more than just an apparel brand – we are a movement, an embodiment of Savage Wanderlust, and a catalyst for positive change. Let us take you on a journey through our brand's story, values, and commitment to making a difference.

The Birth of Tripping Roots: 

Tripping Roots was born out of a desire to redefine the souvenir industry in Costa Rica. Dissatisfied with the poor quality and uninspiring designs found in local stores, our founder embarked on a mission to represent the country in a better way. Combining creativity, sustainability, and community impact, Tripping Roots was created to offer apparel that both locals and foreigners could proudly wear.

Our Unique Selling Proposition:

What sets Tripping Roots apart is our unwavering commitment to collaboration with conservation organizations. We go beyond simple donations by involving these organizations in the design process. Together, we create exclusive designs that represent their causes, with the proceeds directly supporting their efforts. Through this approach, we aim to amplify their voices and raise awareness about the importance of wildlife conservation and environmental sustainability.

Aesthetic and Style:

Tripping Roots products embody the spirit of adventure and exploration. Our designs are inspired by the vibrant Costa Rican wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and the country's Pura Vida culture. From psychedelic patterns to vintage-inspired graphics, our apparel reflects the energy and freedom that come with embracing the unexpected.

Guiding Values and Principles:

Respect for nature and all living beings is at the core of everything we do. We take responsibility in preserving the environment and promoting sustainability through eco-friendly materials, ethical manufacturing practices, and support for local artisans. Empathy towards fellow explorers fosters a sense of community, while courage and curiosity drive us to seek new experiences and knowledge. Creativity is our medium for expressing the wild spirit within.

Making an Impact:

Tripping Roots isn't just about selling apparel; it's about creating a positive impact. We collaborate with conservation organizations, support reforestation efforts, and organize river and beach cleanups. Our manufacturing is done ethically in Los Angeles, ensuring that our products are made with integrity. As we grow, we aspire to become a self-sufficient platform that empowers communities, funds local projects, and inspires other locations worldwide to be self-sufficient.

Your Role in the Tripping Roots Community:

By choosing Tripping Roots, you become a catalyst for change. With each purchase, you contribute to conservation efforts and support local communities. Together, we can make a bigger impact than any other clothing store in Costa Rica. We invite businesses to join our network, plug their causes into our platform, and experience the benefits of collaboration. We believe in win-win situations that benefit both businesses and the environment.


Tripping Roots is more than just a brand; it's a movement that embraces adventure, empowers communities, and champions sustainability. Join us on this incredible journey as we explore the wonders of Costa Rica, connect with nature, and leave a positive legacy for future generations. Together, let's make a difference, one Tripping Roots adventure at a time.
