we have mad love for our community. for years we’ve donated 5% of eco warrior sales to good people doing good things. from there, the eco warrior community initiatives fund was a natural next step. the goal has always been to provide funding & support to the wider community…and to hopefully create some awareness while we’re at it.

this initiative is completely transparent so you can trust 100% of the funds raised will be donated. we contribute 5% from all eco warrior beans & merch sales, and we also accept personal contributions at the checkout. each quarter, we’ll introduce you to our current recipient & give you a wrap-up of the previous quarter to track our impact. let’s do this!

streetsmart australia.

this winter, we’re contributing to StreetSmart Australia: a non-profit organisation supporting vulnerable people in Australia who are currently experiencing homelessness.

at StreetSmart, they believe it‘s a basic human right that everyone should have a safe & secure place to call home. they understand that ending homelessness will take a whole community response & they’re constantly finding innovative ways to get people engaged.

we love that they keep it local: seeking out, supporting & partnering with small organisations and projects in the communities where the funds are raised. since 2003 they’ve had a huge impact, distributing over $9.5 million in funds, supporting 921 grassroots organisations, donating 54,930 SleepSafe kits & providing 266,671 SmartMeals!

to learn more about StreetSmart and the impact they’re having, you can head straight to their website here.

as well as donating 5% of all eco warrior products & merch sales this quarter, we’ve also signed up as a roaster partner for their CafeSmart initiative in Aug for the 8th year running – stay tuned for updates.

qld & nsw flood relief.

throughout the autumn months, we donated to givit australia in support of people affected by the devastating floods in qld & nsw.

earlier this year, after days of heavy rainfall, tens of thousands of homes were flooded causing billions of dollars of property damage. many people were displaced & sadly, 22 people lost their lives – our hearts go out to them & their families.

we decided to donate to givit to ensure 100% of the funds we raised would go directly into the hands of those who were affected.

we’re busy tallying the funds & will bring you a wrap-up of total donations shortly. in the meantime you can head to their website for more information & the services they offer here.
