The European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) and 17 of its members are turning Black Friday green by launching an online fundraiser this year. The funds raised will support conservation projects, including EOCA‘s six most recently selected projects, tackling the issue of plastic pollution both in the environment and at source, in Spain, Italy, Columbia, Brazil and the UK. Find out more about the projects here.
There are two ways to shop the EOCA members‘ products benefiting the conservation projects starting Friday, Nov. 27:
1. Gear available via members’ own websites
A number of the EOCA members will be selling products through their own websites, with varying contributions being made from their sales to the Conservation Fundraiser. Some last for one day, others for the weekend, and others for a week. You can read all the details here.
2. Donated gear available via Outdoor Gear For Good
Other members have made available items through campaign partner and community non-profit company, Outdoor Gear for Good (OGFG). OGFG are selling the donated products from their newly launched eBay shop, with 100 percent of the proceeds being donated to the EOCA Conservation Fundraiser. Not all items will be listed at the same time, so it’s worth checking the OGFG eBay shop regularly.
The companies participating in the 2020 EOCA Green Friday Fundraiser are: Cumulus, Deuter, Gregory, Keen, La Sportiva, Osprey, Montane, Berghaus, Craghoppers, Lowe Alpine, Nikwax, Ortlieb, Osprey, Pajak, Salomon, Stanley, Ternua and Trangoworld.
