As a brand born for life outside, KEEN feels a responsibility to protect and conserve the places where we live, play, and work. Since they were born in 2003, they’ve donated more than $15 million to nonprofit organizations and causes around the world. KEEN’s Swan Island factory is less than five minutes from KEEN headquarters in downtown Portland. This is where Rialto and the rest of the American Built collection comes from, using the finest materials from around the world. KEEN is committed to ensuring that the materials they use in their products are safe for employees, customers, and the environment. They voluntarily push beyond industry standards, researching sustainable chemistry in their manufacturing processes, a progressive example being their use of probiotic technology for natural odor control.
