On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we're more committed than ever to 'Leave It Better' for People, Places & Planet. Earth Day is but one of 365 days where together we continue the fight to protect our Planet, after all, we only have ONE.
Whilst this year we may be separated, we must remember, we are all in this together and all on this planet together. No matter where one is in this world, we are connected by our challenges and a fierce and urgent determination to overcome them.
This #EarthDay we take on the fight for our common home, together. Join us by heading to Earth Day and accessing some RAD resources and ideas.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
For the month ahead, we're doubling our impact and planting 10 trees for every product sold through our planting partners at Trees for the Future.
We're proud to announce that coming soon, you'll see even MORE recycled materials in upcoming Norte releases. That's even more plastic eliminated from our oceans and parks and re-purposed for GOOD.
We're working on some exciting new partnerships that will see Norte expand its reach and impact. We'll be working with organisations that align with our values of People, Places, Planet and our commitment to Leave it Better. One example is that we are making arrangements to make more meaningful use of our seconds and discontinued stock. Stay tuned for more on this!
We're working hard to reduce our environmental footprint, sourcing more sustainable materials and using thoughtful and conscious design principles to minimise waste. For those things that can't be eliminated, we purchase additional trees to offset our carbon emissions.
We continue our standard practices of avoiding all animal products, delivering to you free of plastics and contributing regularly to organisations who are working hard to create a better planet for us all.
