The "R" in PARKIT stands for Responsibility. As an organization, and as people, we believe that we should always leave places better than the way in which we found them. That's why, on day one, we began donating 1% of our revenue to the Planet.
1 FOR 1 | The Mangrove Project
Located on the northern coast of Papua, Indonesia is a spectacular island called Biak, where we work with our partner, SeaTrees to plant thousands of Mangrove trees. These actions regenerate the ecosystems within these local communities and remove 4x the carbon out of the atmosphere than any other tree species.
Problem: Poverty at the village level results in deforestation and further cycles of impoverishment.
Solution: Employ village residents to restore ecosystems and build resilient, sustainable communities.
Impact: Jobs enable people to provide food, healthcare and education to their families. Government agreements ensure permanent local control of restoration sites. Healthy Mangrove forests sequester CO2 and support local marine ecosystems.
Funding: This project wouldn't exist without the financial support of forward-thinking Individuals like you and brands like PARKIT.
HOW IT WORKS
Every chair sold by PARKIT means a new opportunity for SeaTrees to plant a Mangrove and reach their goal of planting another 1-million trees. Each tree is cared for and grown by the local communities to make way for a sustainable future.
BUY A CHAIR
Supporting our commitment to sustainability starts with the purchase of a Voyager Outdoor Chair. Every chair purchased, funds the planting of another Mangrove Tree in Biak, Indonesia.
PLANT A MANGROVE
A percentage of our revenue is donated directly to SeaTrees to help fund re-forestation projects. Your money goes to the communities that support the regeneration of these coastal ecosystems.
IMPACT THE PLANET
Each Mangrove Tree planted sequesters close to 680 lbs [308kg] of CO2 over its lifetime. To date, the PARKIT community has planted 18,000+ trees which will sequester over 6,100 tons of carbon from our atmosphere.
The PARKIT Impact
The ocean contains 90% of the carbon in the global carbon cycle. It's super power is to sequester more CO2 than any other ecosystem on Earth. But it needs our help to be more heroic and effective.
SeaTrees enables millions of individuals to make small contributions that fund SeaTrees Projects to restore ocean health. Together, we can make a huge impact and accelerate the regeneration of ocean health.
The Greater Community
Let's Save The Seas - Together
PARKIT is just one of many brands that play a role in supporting the goals and initiatives of SeaTrees & Sustainable Surf. And we're in some great company.
