Support us by supporting our partners.
This is more than an affinity card.
It’s a commitment to building a resilient, thriving bioregion. To leaving this place better than we found it; to swimming upstream, to doing things differently. It’s part of a collaborative experiment in scaling solutions that matter to this place we call home, the place where wild Pacific salmon have ever run. Your purchases on the Salmon Nation VISA generate real returns that Ecotrust, in partnership with Beneficial State Bank, uses to scale regional solutions. Join us and apply today.
Support businesses that give back
Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has been inspiring the business community to make giving back a priority. Started by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and his friend Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet encourages businesses to donate 1% of their annual sales to organizations working for a healthier planet. More than 1,200 companies in 48 countries have now joined the movement, benefiting more than 3,300 organizations worldwide — including Ecotrust.
Ecotrust is honored to receive support from the following companies who give generously through their commitment to 1% for the Planet.
Nau, Partners for Change
Nau — a sustainable clothing company (and local Portland neighbor) — has designated Ecotrust as one of its Partners for Change. Nau donates 2% of every purchase to a select group of nonprofit organizations, allowing its customers to choose where to give. Here at Ecotrust, we are big fans of innovative business models. We also love beautiful, responsibly made clothing. Shop at Nau, donate to Ecotrust, and know that you have made a difference. Win-win!
Give the gift of Charity
With TisBest Charity Gift Cards, recipients can make a donation to the nonprofit organization of their choice, including Ecotrust. You can give a gift card that empowers your recipient to support a cause they care about.
Drink for Good
Americans throw away approximately 25 million plastic bottles each hour. Drink for Good’s “Drink for Nature” bottle reduces the need for plastic bottles, are made of 100% recycled aluminum, BPA-free, are the only metal water bottles made in the United States, and support Ecotrust’s work. With these bottles, you make an impact by using a reusable water bottle and supporting Ecotrust’s work at the same time.
