Munich covered in 25cm of snow proved to be the perfect platform for EOCA as it launched its new 2 year focus and raised €19,000 for conservation during ISPO 19
Thanks to the generosity of EOCA’s members, the Conservation Fundraiser boasted its largest number of items yet – with offerings from hammocks to skiwear, mugs to climbing harnesses and everything in between. In addition, Bergans of Norway, Klean Kanteen and Ternua held fundraisers on their stand to benefit EOCA. With a generous top up from ISPO, EOCA was delighted to raise a total of €19,000 during the 4 days of the show! 100% of this will be spent on the conservation projects EOCA supports this coming year.
In addition, EOCA was delighted to welcome four new members into the Association. Premsons based in India who are proud to say that they make the world’s largest range of zero carbon footprint sports bottles, Tarrago who creates high tech products to maintain, clean, waterproof and care for outdoor apparel and footwear, Brettschneider Fernreisebedarf, who sell mosquito nets and repellents including mosquito nets from recycling polyester and MIZU selling reusable stainless steel bottles, mugs, cutlery and straws all designed to reduce single-use plastics – ‘protecting where we play’, all signed up during or shortly after the show. EOCA looks forward to working with them to benefit conservation in the coming months and years.
