In honour of Earth Day 2021, B.C.-based and Canadian-made sustainable and ethical clothing brand ecologyst has partnered with RAVEN, a registered charity with a mission to raise funds for Indigenous People’s access to justice, to release a limited-edition tee.
Designed with the quote, “a healthy planet is a universal right” and blue dot on the front from world-renowned planetary scientist Carl Sagan, this one-of-a-kind, limited edition print tee on organic cotton will be available with 50% of the proceeds going to RAVEN.
ecologyst’s mission is to elevate individuals and organizations doing good work for people and the planet — from the bi-weekly Community Spotlight in their e-newsletter, to partnering on events and products, and their 1% for the planet commitment.
RAVEN (Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs) is the only non-profit charity in Canada with a mandate to raise legal defence funds to help Indigenous Peoples defend their rights and title, and the integrity of their ancestral lands. With a focus on a thriving natural habitat, they are ensuring environmental justice for all.
Some of the campaigns they’ve worked on include protecting nature’s beauty and biodiversity, stopping fossil fuel expansion, and supporting Indigenous governance.
ecologyst are looking to build their partnership with RAVEN beyond this Earth Day activation.
“We’re so fortunate that the Indigenous peoples in Canada allow us to continue living on Turtle Island. We believe it’s our duty to do what we can to support Nations in asserting their rights, and in turn protect the ecosystems we all depend upon as humans living on our only planet,” says Rene Gauthier, CEO of ecologyst.
The Earth Day Tee speaks directly to the belief that a healthy planet should be a universal right. Order yours at https://ecologyst.com/products/earth-day-tee.
