World Rainforest Day 2023: How We’re Doing Our Part For The Rainforests

June has been an exciting month with the past celebration of World Environment Day and World Oceans Day. To cap it off, we're celebrating World Rainforest Day this June 22 with the theme this year, "Conserve. Restore. Regenerate."

Those three words capture the critical work that must and will happen to safeguard rainforests for the future. Everyone worldwide has a role to play in assisting the recovery of degrading ecosystems and conserving sustainably. 

In conjunction with World Rainforest Day, we wanted to take a moment to share our core commitment to environmental causes and our partnership with the incredible 1% For The Planet organization. At ALPAKA, we're committed to creating a brighter tomorrow for future generations and for you to be part of it too.

When you rock an ALPAKA bag, you're carrying function and style-making a statement about your commitment to the planet. Each purchase helps us plant a tree and support environmental conservation initiatives. With our partnership with 1% For The Planet, we pledge to donate a minimum of 1% of our annual sales to environmental projects dedicated to rainforest conservation.

So far, the organization has helped plant more trees in California, Australia, Indonesia, South America, and different parts of Africa. Together, we're taking a stand to protect the habitats of countless species, preserve biodiversity, and mitigate the impact of carbon emissions. 

And let's not forget our dedication to sustainable materials. Many of our bags and accessories are made with eco-friendly fabrics, such as Axoflux®️ (recycled from ocean-bound recycled plastic bottle waste), X-Pac® (100% carbon-neutral recycled polyester), and more. By choosing these materials, we reduce waste, minimize our carbon footprint, and advocate responsible production practices.

Happy World Rainforest Day!
