Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of ingeniously crafted camping hammocks and innovative outdoor accessories, has joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“At ENO’s very core is the belief in the conservation and preservation of our wild places. We are excited to join the 1% network and work with other member companies to be a driving force for positive environmental change. This partnership will be an extension of the giving back that we have been committed to for almost two decades.” says Amy Allison, who manages Corporate Giving for ENO.
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
“Our member companies have donated more than $175 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We’re excited to welcome ENO to our global network,” says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
“When we are not in the office, we are outdoors hiking, biking, boating, skiing, running, surfing, and afterwards, relaxing in a hammock,” says Allison. “Giving back to the planet that feeds our souls is a natural part of the ENO ethos. We are proud to become members of 1% for the Planet, to help leave the environment in an even better place for future generation.”
Eagles Nest Outfitters was founded in the summer of 1999 and has steadily grown to be the leading provider of ingeniously crafted parachute hammocks and outdoor accessories. ENO continues to offer the highest quality relaxation products for adventure travelers and outdoor lovers everywhere and is committed to making the world a better place by supporting partner organizations to protect our wild places.
