As a company deeply inspired by the coastal lifestyle, our number one priority is to preserve the ocean, our continual source of inspiration and joy. We do this by using sustainable materials and local manufacturing, but also by making annual donations to both local and international organizations whose primary objective is to protect the oceans.
In order to insure that our donations have the greatest possible impact, we’ve partnered with One Percent for the Planet.
One Percent for the Planet’s mission is to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet. By joining forces with other like-minded members, we’re able to ensure that our contributions pack the greatest punch and also have a positive affect on policy and regulation.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (left), founder of Patagonia and Craig Mathews (right), owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, One Percent for the Planet has since generated over $100 million, successfully funding thousands of nonprofit organizations, helping to save land, protect forests, rivers and oceans, make agricultural and energy production more sustainable, and keep toxins out of the environment and plastics out of the ocean.
We’re incredibly proud and honored to be One Percent’s newest member.
