Parks Project Mission Statement- "Parks Project's mission is to leave it better than we found it. Our goal is to protect and preserve parklands for generations to come by educating, advocating, volunteering, and activating park supporters to get involved in conservation. To date, Parks Project has contributed over $1,500,000 to help fund vital projects in national parks around the US."
How it all Started- Co-founders Kieth Eshleman and Sevag Kazanci witnessed the problem and an opportunity in 2014. Through their sheer love of mother nature and an understanding that not enough was being done to save our parks, they set out to create an impactful company that would stir the hearts of nature lovers near and far.
How it's Going- Parks Project has made our prized National Parks more accessible not only through volunteering and donations but also through their stylish and well-made graphic tee's, sweatshirts, canisters and so much more. When you purchase one of these eye-catching tributes to mother nature rest assured you're partnering directly with over 45 Park Conservancies across the nation.
How it Works- By contributing directly to conservancies, Parks knows exactly where their contributions are being spent and how to track their progress in the parks. This contrasts the traditional percentage model where a chunk of the donation is eaten up on administrative fees and donations are pooled and divided without knowing exactly where the money is going.
