This year for Earth Day, our Austin Canoe & Kayak Austin Store teamed up with Give 5% to Mother Earthpledging to donate five percent of our sales from Earth Day to the Give 5 Fund.

Give 5% to Mother Earth is an annual Austin environmental campaign that takes place on Earth Day where participating businesses pledge to donate 5% of their gross sales from that day to benefit local environmental non-profits.

We are proud to report that we donated just over $1,000 to help preserve Austin’s green spaces!

The 2017 Give 5 to Mother Earth Day campaign benefits the following organizations:

Shoal Creek Conservancy, Hill Country Conservancy, Sustainable Food Center, Waller Creek Conservancy, Austin Parks Foundation, Texas Campaign for the Environment Fund, Friends of Barton Springs Pool, Park Pease Conservancy, and TreeFolks.
