The adventure helps us looking at the world from a different perspective while trying to improve it.
We believe we can have a positive impact on people lives thanks to the product we make.
WHY WE DO THIS
We blieve that the power of adventure can improve the human condition.
We create products in a sustainable way to fight against extreme poverty and to inspire people to live adventures while doing good actions.
GEAR FOR GOOD
Our promise is to create long lasting, sustainable products and to use the earnings to help poor people. We want to create products that will last and that will have a long lasting effect on the world.
Reused. Recycled. Responsible.
We plan to erase waste where possible, by conforming to the 3R rule: Reused, Recycled and Responsible. All of our products are part of at least one of these categories. We chose all the materials ethically.
Moreover while creating products with high design standards and minimal waste, we are constantly trying to reduce carbon emission. For example by helping our suppliers make the transition to renewable energy and by compensating the impact of our shipping.
Create to fight the extreme poverty.
This is Cotopaxi’s heart. We reduce our profit margin to make a difference. We designate 1% of our annual earnings to the Cotopaxi Foundation. Every year, this foundation designates money to non-profit partners, that were selected based on their concrete experience in improving people lives and human poverty.
Our commitment to fight poverty has a focus on three categories: health, instruction and existence. MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-Pal) proves that investing on these fields creates bigger chances to fight against poverty.
