Giving Back


Since our founding, LEAP has been a member of 1% For The Planet, a global group of organizations donating at least 1% of annual net sales to environmental non-profits. Over the years, we’ve supported non-profits such as Student Conservation Association (NH), Appalachian Mountain Club (MA), Trees For The Future (MD), and the Organization for the Assabet River (MA) in hopes of helping to inspire the next generation of environmental leaders. In addition, like all businesses that use the earth’s resources, we believe companies owe something for that privilege, and so we see this 1%-giving as kind of an “earth tax,” as Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia and co-founder of 1% For The Planet, has called it. Anything we can do to help find long-term sustainable solutions to keep the earth clean is all right by us, and the good vibes are a nice feeling, too.
