Leave it Beautiful

Our Motivation to Help You Explore the World is Equal in Our Desire to Protect It

“Wherever you camp, wherever you stay, leave it cleaner than when you arrived. Not just as clean, but cleaner.”

- Wally Byam


Those words ring as true today as they did when Wally wrote them down over fifty years ago. As Airstreamers, we are closely connected with the natural world. We camp and hike in our nation’s forests, deserts, and mountains. We travel the highways that crisscross our country. And we’ve surely seen the trash tossed to the wind, caught in the roots of a tree or a roadside fence, or floating in an otherwise pristine stream. Our world needs protectors, and every little contribution is felt in a big way.

We talked with thousands of Airstreamers and learned that 83% of us try to leave the places we camp in a more beautiful condition than when we found them. Leaving it Beautiful is a commitment that we make to help protect those places and preserve them for future generations.

At Airstream, we take environmental awareness seriously, and we’ve made it our mission to Leave it Beautiful. That phrase is not just a marketing campaign – it’s a reminder that together we can make a difference. Leave it Beautiful is a call to action to pick up the litter, toss it in a can, and not simply step over it and pass it by. Your purchase of a new Airstream will open doors to new experiences and places you’ve only dreamed of – but it takes all of us working together to ensure those places remain pristine, accessible, and ready for the next adventure.
