Green Friday Fundraising!
Green Friday Fundraising!
For Black Friday 2020, 18 members of EOCA are raising additional funds for conservation through online sales, turning the event green. All donations will be put into conservation projects, including the six projects chosen most recently, tackling plastic pollution in the environment and at source around the world. You can read our most recently selected projects here.
 
The companies involved are raising funds in a number of ways. Please scroll down to read all the details.  Some are hosting events on their own websites, others are donating via Outdoor Gear For Good. All are giving you the opportunity to buy items ahead of Christmas, while at the same time, making a difference! Come back to check for updates over the next month.

Outdoor Gear For Good (OG4G) is a not for profit, community interest company. OG4G sells outdoor items donated to it during events such as this, and at other times throughout the year via its Outdoor Gear For Good eBay shop, with 100% of the profit coming to EOCA to be spent on conservation.   Check out the shop for great gear AND the opportunity to make a difference.   Please note that not all of the items will appear at the same time so please do keep re-visiting to see new items. 

A huge thank you to all members and to Outdoor Gear For Good for supporting conservation this Green Friday.
 

P.S. Did you know that on 27th June 2020, we launched our first ever Online Conservation Fundraiser. Thanks to the fantastic support of our members, everyone who bought some great new gear, and our partner Outdoor Gear for Good, we raised over €19,400 that will now fund vital conservation projects. See our press release and the report attached to this page for more information.

Both the Breathe Foundation and the Atlantic Rainforest Institute would like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank EOCA for its support of this project, and its ongoing support of projects like ours across the wide spectrum that it engages in.  Without the commitment and funding from the European outdoor industry ...to assist established or start-up initiatives, many would never make it off the ground... and this [particular]  project and its roll out may never have been possible.
