We make Garments for Good, which means that when you shop, we give. Every item of Toad&Co sold contributes to supporting the greater good. We believe, without exception, that adventure and opportunity are possible for everyone. That’s why we support environmental protection groups like the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, is the nonprofit behind all those green signs reminding you to pack in, pack out. Since 1994, the Center has been dedicated to educating the public on how to responsibly enjoy nature. In order to sustain healthy, vibrant wild lands, we should experience and respect the great outdoors while leaving it as untouched as possible.
Leave No Trace is built on seven core principles for enjoying the outdoors responsibly and with the lowest human impact. Although Leave No Trace has its roots in backcountry and wilderness, the practices have been adapted so that they can be applied anywhere – from the backcountry, to local parks, to your backyard – and for any recreational activity.
The Seven Principles
- Plan Ahead and Prepare
- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimize Campfire Impacts
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors
With a rising global population, it’s our job as individuals to be allies of the earth and teachers to each other. And it’s our job as an outdoor company to protect the wild places that inspire us. As partners of the Leave No Trace Center, we’re proud to support the continued education of environmental stewardship across the globe. For more information, visit ltn.org.
