One Percent For The Planet
For the folks at NOCO Gear, putting the gear to good use means ascending a slab of granite or jamming up a sandstone crack. Our team is comprised of passionate climbers . What could we do to give back to the environment that provides an outlet for our busy lives?
In 2014, NOCO Gear decided membership in 1% For The Planet would provide NOCO Gear with the opportunity to drive positive environmental change in our geographical region. One of our favorite places to climb is Indian Creek just ouside of Moab. Renowned for its Wingate Sandstone, Indian Creek offers some of the world's finest crack climbing. Joining 1% for The Planet meant we could directly donate one percent of our total sales to the environmental organizations of our choice. For this reason, it made sense for use to choose the Access Fund. We also pay annual membership dues to 1% For The Planet to help this exemplary organization defray its overhead costs. We encourage our business associates to visit their website: www.onepercentfortheplanet.org for more information.
