Intersectional Environmentalism

There is no environmental justice without social justice. We focus on supporting environmentally vulnerable communities by partnering with and recommending vendors and suppliers of Black Indigenous People of Colour (BIPOC) to our clients. Outside of our work, we actively continue to educate ourselves and consciously work on being anti-racist.

We donate our time, money and efforts to organizations in support of local BIPOC communities. For more information, please email us!
