Pack Rat Outdoor Center | 2022-2024

Faebyan Whittle is the Director of Sustainability for Pack Rat Outdoor Center. Faebyan’s professional passion is providing education and actionable opportunities targeting environmental sustainability initiatives along with helping businesses and individuals become better stewards. By meeting people where they are in the journey to sustainable living, Faebyan has successfully been able to understand and identify specific and unique frameworks of sustainable practices that are actionable in the present with a plan for future progress. Currently, Pack Rat Outdoor Center has a diversion rate of over 95% for in house waste streams and an 83% diversion rate for community events.

Faebyan has also worked with other small businesses nationally and locally along with community members to support sustainable practices. Faebyan works with the public which at times requires the ability to multitask while calmly managing high stress retail scenarios while still connecting to customers. Ensuring projects stay on track and completed on schedule is always a priority, but life is rarely linear, so Faebyan remains confident in her ability to be flexible while troubleshooting problems efficiently and effectively. Faebyan believes that gratitude and a positive outlook resolve almost every issue we may encounter. In her spare time she plays outside – solo backpacking, leading women’s backpacking trips, mountain biking, climbing, foraging and gardening. Whether riding the Razorback Greenway or foraging for mushrooms, Faebyan prioritizes connecting her two sons with outdoor spaces.
