While adhering to social and environmental principles to provide an ethically made product with low environmental impact may seem sufficient in doing our part in improving the world, we also like to support organizations whose values align with our own.
On purchases over $100, we donate 5% of the net proceeds to the Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation.
1.8 TRILLION pieces of plastic float in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation, an organization deploying a new system to capture floating plastic for recycling, estimates it will remove half the Garbage Patch in five years!
We are corporate sponsors of Transcend Discipline, a groundbreaking alliance of award-winning practitioners inspiring a brave rethink of international conservation and development practice.
We also have supported the Surfrider Foundation's annual benefit event for clean water and healthy beaches. Clean water, whether inland or coastal, is near and dear to us at Connecticut Country Clothing, and is our motivation for having a minimum impact on the environment, and for designing with biodegradable textiles as best we can. The state of Connecticut has 618 miles (with beaches) on Long Island Sound (which is a tidal estuary), along with rivers and inland lakes.
