Klean Kanteen's Nonprofit Outreach Manager Caroleigh Pierce shares her appreciation for the nonprofit partners we've had the privilege to work with over the past year.
November is a great time of year for gratitude and reflection. We gather with our friends and family and share memories and stories of time spent together doing the things we love. At Klean, we consider our nonprofit partners friends and family and we work tirelessly with them to create a safer and more beautiful world for all. We share missions and messages and just as importantly, we work together as advocates and ambassadors for each other and for the causes and issues we stand behind.
Our inspiring nonprofit partners are focusing on the things that matter most to Klean. These issues include: swimmable, fishable, drinkable and accessible water, a world free of plastic pollution and toxic chemicals that contaminate our bodies and our planet, and actions that help more people experience and fall in love with the outdoors and our natural world. These are the reasons we do what we do, and we wouldn’t be able to move the needle of change without our nonprofit partners.
Through education, advocacy, and policy work with strength, integrity and passion, our 1% For The Planet partners are making amazing change in the world that directly ties to our mission and core values. The 5Gyres Institute is working to end the global health crisis of plastic pollution through education and data collection, Breast Cancer Fund is focusing on the prevention of cancer by addressing the connection between toxins in our environment and our health. NatureBridge is connecting 30,000 students per year with our National Parks and environmental science education via their programs to foster a love and protection of our natural world. American Rivers is currently working to restore and protect our U.S. rivers and waterways, with the ambitious goal of preserving 5,000 river miles of rivers by 2018 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. In addition to these key partners, we work with a wide range of other impactful organizations that continuously allow us to amplify our positive impact in this world.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our Klean partners and friends. We are so grateful for all the time, energy and love you put into your work.
