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.
This includes the revenue from all our online direct channels (e.g., our website and on Amazon) as well as our wholesale revenue (e.g., Tundra and Faire).
Our two current recipients are the American Prairie Foundation and Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i. Previous recipients include The Nature Conservancy of Hawai'i and Palmyra Atoll.
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.
The mission of Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i is to inspire local communities to care for their coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups. They also coordinate educational programs, team building corporate cleanups, waste diversion services, public awareness campaigns, and help others organize their own beach cleanups.
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 made in addition to the PCTA and CDTC product-specific donations and also in addition to the cost associated with the carbon offsetting for all customer orders.
