SUSTAINABLE PLAY’s mission is to curate thoughtful, canonical, and provocative outdoor writing that cultivates perspective, wellness, and action. In that manner, Sustainable Play is literary activism; a narrative praxis.

Sustainable Play’s founder and chief curator is Brad Rassler. Brad’s stories have appeared in Ascent, Alpinist, Climbing, Outside, Powder, Sierra, and other outdoor publications. His first feature profile, “Running Talus,” a cover story for Climbing magazine, explored the effort to convince Yosemite climbers to protect their climbs using nuts rather than pitons.
