Support the planet
To live in harmony with nature is to understand a balanced and sustainable life with our planet. I've always been connected to the forests of the Pacific Northwest and they are constantly threatened by the needs of our growing society. These old forests are irreplaceable and that is why a portion of all my profits will go to protect these ancient forests.
Protect our Old Growth Forests
Old Growth Forests play essential roles in wildlife habitat, species diversity, hydrological regimes, nutrient cycles, carbon storage, and numerous other ecological processes.
These old forests are rare, and unfortunately becoming rarer every day due to natural disturbances like fire, human disturbance where old growth isn’t protected, and the warming and drying climate.
The primeval forests today resemble islands of disconnected old-growth stands — pinched at the edges by clear-cuts, development and agriculture. They depend on streams choked by sediment, and they are cared for by parks organizations that are under-funded and under-resourced.
Save the Redwoods League
Save the Redwoods League is a nonprofit organization founded in 1918 whose mission is to protect and restore coast redwood and giant sequoia trees through the preemptive purchase of development rights to notable areas with such forests.
It relies on donations and investments to buy, restore, and provide public access to redwood forest lands. The League has protected more than 200,000 acres of forestland. As of 2018, the League has helped create 66 redwood parks and reserves.
In addition to purchasing and protecting land, it supports restoration, research, and education programs, and gives small grants to other organizations involved in ecological conservation.

I am always interesting in learning new ways to give back to our planet and would love to hear about any of your favorite organizations. Please reach out and let's learn from one another.
