Mountain Flower Apparel was created with the environment and community in mind. Our focus is sustainability, giving back to our community and using WRAP certified & Made in America clothing. We use only water-based ink on all of our screen printed apparel and invest in GREEN measures in our water filtration, cleaning supplies and daily activities. Our goal is to provide comfortable and stylish apparel for an outdoor and active lifestyle.
For each piece of apparel sold we give back to a local charity in Park City, Utah. In the last year we have been able to donate to: The Kimball Art Center, Parley’s Park Elementary, Summit Land Conservancy, RWE, Swaner EcoCenter, Park City Cooperative Preschool, Whole Planet Foundation – Whole Foods Park City and the Park City Education Foundation.
To showcase our new collection we invited Wendy Chioji and her niece Amanda to model for an afternoon around Park City. I met Wendy a few years ago when she and my husband were climbing partners for Mt. Kilimanjaro with Livestrong and the Survivor Summit. The climb was filmed by Growing Boulder and turned into a documentary, Conquering Kilimanjaro, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2015. More than a film, Conquering Kilimanjaro is an inspirational shout out to cancer survivors everywhere that celebrates the power of love and the irrepressible nature of the human spirit. It is a feature length documentary on the Survivor Summit participants’ life-changing efforts to climb Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain at 19,341 feet.
Wendy is a Cancer Survivor, Triathlete, Livestrong Advocate, Adventurer, Animal Lover, Ex-News Anchor, And maybe, Your New Best Friend – All while trying to make the world a better place. Wendy recently got back from Antarctica as she has now visited all the continents – WOW! Wendy never ceases to amaze and is a huge motivator for our team.

Amanda is a design and fashion student with a love for travel. She is modeling our Park City Shopping Tote, Mountain Flower hoodie and part of the 435-PC line, each item has a charitable arm to one of these local groups – The Kimball Art Center, Recycle Utah in Park City and the National Ability Center (NAC).
The Kimball Art Center (KAC) exists to provide arts education and access to everyone. Through their exhibitions, educational arts programs and events, KAC provides a platform and a place for artists and arts enthusiasts to come together to explore, celebrate and cherish the creative spark that lives within us all. They believe that art brings joy, direction, a welcome distraction and hope to the 85,000+ community members we serve each year. They know that art changes lives and brings people together, sustaining our vibrant community and inspiring positive change in the world around us.
Recycle Utah offers a variety of collection programs, education programs, workshops, and events. As long as the health of our local and global environment is a concern, they strive to offer community-based resources and solutions by empowering people to lead sustainable lives.
The National Ability Center empowers individuals of all abilities by building self-esteem, confidence and lifetime skills through sport, recreation and educational programs since 1985. A fundamental aspiration of the National Ability Center is to provide high-quality, inclusive programs to individuals and families of all abilities and backgrounds, including those in need. In each of the last three years, individuals and their families participated in more than 22,500 lessons and outings.
