Give’r is proud to be a member of both 1% for the Tetons and their sister organization, 1% for the Planet. Given the challenges facing our planet - from the global to local scale - these organizations provide a venue for Give’r to give back to the environment, creating a tangible tie between economic prosperity and environmental sustainability. Each year, Give’r pledges 1% of sales to help fund projects furthering the long-term sustainability of the Tetons region and beyond.
“Signing on to 1% for the Planet (and 1% for the Tetons) shows Give’r has a strong commitment to investing in sustainability efforts,” says Terry Kellogg, CEO 1% for the Planet. “They're using business as a tool to engage and motivate their stakeholders while partnering with environmental organizations that complement their brand. We're excited to welcome Give’r to our global network."

give'r gives to Reforest Patagonia. Over 7.5 million acres of forest have been destroyed in Patagonia in the last 100 years. December 2011 marked one of the region's worst fires, claiming 42,500 acres. Reforest Patagonia, the largest native-species reforestation campaign in Chile's history, was formed in response to this tragedy. The program aims to plant more than 1 million trees in Torres del Paine and other national parks and reserves throughout Chile. give'r has teamed up with Reforest Patagonia to plant a "give'r forest" in Chile. For every "Reforest Patagonia" branded product you purchase, a tree will be planted under your name in the Give'r forest and unique GPS coordinates will be provided to locate your tree. In the spirit of the reforestation campaign, we have collaborated with Recover Brands to produce a garment made from 100% recycled material.
