About Us


We're a bunch of weird humans who love connecting with the natural world in fun and meaningful ways. Living a more "wild" nature-connected life is important to our mental health. Some of our favorite activities include: birding, walking, hiking, camping, sit spot, meditating, swimming, SUPing, forest bathing, wild foraging, adventure cycling, gardening, rewilding, and just being in the natural world. If you like those things too you'll probably enjoy our community.
This online shop showcases products that we love, use, and trust. Our goal is to offer high quality nature-inspired products that will compliment your wild life.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help improve the health of individuals, wildlife and the planet, by inspiring people all over the world to reconnect with Nature.

How we got started

We Are Wildness was founded by Alissa in 2011 as a personal growth project. After struggling with depression and anxiety for many years, she found nature connection and living closer to the land to be instrumental in her healing process. Ever passionate about wildlife, nature and wild spaces, Alissa’s hope upon starting WAW was to create an avenue with which to inspire people to reconnect, protect and preserve both their intrinsic wildness and the wildness of the greater earth organism.  
That personal growth project has now grown into a beautiful collective of wild ones who are rewilding their lives, connecting in virtual community all over the globe, and helping the wildness of the world thrive.
