Something we all need more of
There’s never been a greater need for people to get outside and connect with nature. Humans are built to be outside. Yet the average person spends less than 30-60 minutes outside each day. The world wants you to spend more time indoors and on devices despite evidence of it's negative effects. We want you to spend more time outside in nature. Being outside and in nature is the best thing you can do for your physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Explore. Connect. Protect.
Let’s teach our children the value of nature by spending more time exploring and learning about it. When we can’t be outside, let’s surround ourselves with books and artwork that inspire us and remind us how wonderful nature is.
It’s great to watch a video about the environment but nothing can compare to the impact of actually experiencing it. We create fun and engaging learning activities to help enhance outdoor adventures that connecting us with nature on a deeper level.
We believe that people who love nature are more likely to protect it. We want to raise a generation of nature enthusiasts who will grow up and become the humans that the planet needs to solve the ever growing challenges ahead. We’ve also partnered with 1% for the Planet to contribute a portion of our revenue to worthly environmental causes.
