We firmly believe that our day to day actions and behaviours can have a real impact on the world we live in, the state of our environment, and the health of our planet. While we strive to make our office carbon neutral, reduce our office consumption and be conscious of our daily impact on the planet, we do recognize that this isn't always enough. We have therefore chosen to donate 10% of all net revenues to three locally based organizations that are working to protect our environment and improve the world we live in. We are also proud to support local Vancouver elementary schools and the arts. See below for more details.
We encourage you to read more about our three environmental champions of choice and let us know what you think...after all, it is because of you that we are able to support these great organizations in their work. Since 2007, we have donated $96,637.81 to environmental organizations, locals schools and the arts, and we are looking forward to adding to that number!
As Canada's pre-eminent advocate for the environment, EcoJustice Canada (formerly Sierra Legal), is now a cornerstone in the strategic plans of campaign groups throughout the country. Their lawyers and scientists represent not only environmentalists, but also labour groups, First Nations, and citizens' organizations. They continue to tackle some of the most significant environmental cases in the country and choose their cases strategically to set important precedents in Canada's burgeoning body of environmental law. From the lower courts to the Supreme Court of Canada, environmental cases are being heard and won. For more information, please visit www.ecojustice.ca

The Western Canada Wilderness Committee
This committee is the largest membership-based, citizen-funded wilderness preservation organization in Canada and they are passionate about saving wilderness and wildlife and strive to do this through education. Across the country, the Wilderness Committee has 30,000 members and an additional support base of 30,000 donors and has campaigned successfully to protect millions of hectares of Canadian wilderness in over 40 key wilderness areas. Their educational mission is supported by a strong research and mapping program, strategic alliances with other environmental groups, First Nations and community leaders, and regular expeditions into threatened wilderness areas.

Because we believe in giving back to the community, $100 from every house sold is donated to the elementary school in the local catchment area.
