About our 5% Donations to Non-Profits

We believe it is important for businesses to give back.

Accordingly, on the 15th of each month, we donate 5% of the previous month's total sales to US-based environmental non-profits to help fund their conservation efforts.

This is 5% of all revenue. Not profit. But every single sale on all products.

We currently have a signed agreement with the American Prairie Foundation as one of our first recipients, who have received 2.5% of our December revenue.

The mission of the American Prairie Foundation is to create the largest nature reserve in the contiguous United States, a refuge for people and wildlife preserved forever as part of America’s heritage.

We do not yet have a signed agreement for the remaining 2.5%, but we have donated this to the Nature Conservancy of Hawai'i and Palmyra Atoll.

The mission of the Nature Conservancy of Hawai'i and Palmyra is to protect Hawai'i’s and Palmyra’s spectacular diversity of life.

The above two non-profits reflect our commitment to having 1 US mainland recipient and 1 Hawaiian recipient to share our donated proceeds, each with a strong conservation record.

We will make all donations on an unrestricted basis, allowing these non-profits the freedom to allocate the funds to where they see maximal benefit - rather than us dictating how and where the funds can be used.

Please note that these donations are made directly by Desesh and therefore are not individually tax deductible.

This 5% donation is also in addition to the cost associated with the carbon offsetting for all customer orders.
