we have mad love for our community. for years we’ve donated 5% of sales from our eco warrior blend to good people doing good things. the goal has always been to provide support & funds to the wider community & the environment…and to hopefully help create some awareness and/or change while we’re at it.

the eco warrior community initiatives fund (ewcif for short) was created to track our contributions ongoing & report them back to you. as well as beans, we now donate 5% of sales from all eco warrior merch lines too. each quarter, we’ll introduce to to our newest fund partner. we’ll also give you a wrap-up of donations from the previous quarter so you can see how your donation has made an impact. let’s do this!

beyond blue.

this Summer, we’re proud to be partnering with Beyond Blue: Australia’s most well-known and visited mental health organisation, focused on supporting people affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. Beyond Blue has been providing support & services to people in Australia for 20 years.

this time of year isn’t equally fun & festive for all. for some, it can be a huge source of stress & anxiety. Did you know: one in six Australians is currently experiencing depression or anxiety or both. 17.0% of Australians aged 16 to 85 have experienced an anxiety and/or affective disorder in the past 12 months. that’s around 3.2 million people today! on top of that, one in 8 Aussies will consider suicide at some point in their lives. these statistics are beyond scary.

beyond blue works with the community to improve mental health and prevent suicide, so that all people in Australia can achieve their best possible mental health. head to their website for more information & the services they offer here.

the climate council.

throughout Spring, we teamed up with The Climate Council. the results of the IPCC’s latest report couldn’t have been clearer: we either dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions this decade or face catastrophic climate impacts.

with the release of the report back in August, it was obvious that we still have a long way to go to save our planet. we’ve already made a lot of changes to the way we run our business to reduce our carbon footprint, but we can always do more!

we believe education is the first step if we really want to see lasting change. which is why we partnered up with the climate council, to help push for climate change action.

we wrote a post about the climate council & the IPCC report which you can read here. as always, 5% of sales of all eco warrior products & merch last quarter will be donated…stay tuned for a wrap-up of donations shortly!
