What Does it Mean?
Our inspiration behind every single one of our products comes from the same thing: Nature. We are talking about the National Parks, State Parks, National Forests, National Monuments, Rivers, Wetlands, National Seashore & Lakeshore's, and all other public lands in this country, and the fish & wildlife that inhabit them. These lands have given us more than just incredible hikes, epic camp spots, and memories of a lifetime; they’ve cultivated in us a deep appreciation for causes that aim to protect nature's natural beauty. Giving Back To Nature is our way of saying thanks to our public lands for giving us so much. And in our effort to give back, 10% of all proceeds are donated to public lands & conservation groups.
How Does it Work?
Through our products, we can help to raise awareness of the impact humans and industry have on public lands as well as fish & wildlife. In order to do this, each product will be paired with a cause that we believe helps our planet progress toward a more socially & environmentally responsible future. At the end of each fiscal quarter, we will gather 10% of the proceeds from each product, and write a check to each designated cause. This means we are writing checks four times a year for our public lands!
Next Check Date: March 31, 2021
Where Does the Money Go?
Donation to our public lands can happen in many forms, be it a park foundation, a school that teaches LNT (Leave No Trace) practices, or a conservation group. They all play a special role in making sure we pass our lands off to the next generation in a better condition than we received it.
Below is a list of some of our go-to organizations, which will update as time goes on:
Impact As A Startup:
Right now, The Nature Collective is at the level of a small, garage based start up. Due to this, our impact on a financial basis is not going to be significant, even with 10% of proceeds being donated. So during this time, we are focusing our efforts on petition awareness, advocating, and volunteer work. In order for the first two to work, we need your help. As we grow, we will share our causes through all platforms, including Instagram, our media tab, Twitter and Facebook. Give us a follow on one of our social media pages, or keep checking back on our media tab to hear what petitions/issues we are trying to bring to our community.
We are a small company with big ambitions and hope one day, our donation alone can give a conservation organization everything it needs to succeed.
Below is where we will be tracking our past donations, including the date, the organization and the amount. With your help, we are so stoked to see how this effort, which may start small, grows to have an incredible impact.
