Wild Human is always looking for new ways to use our buying power to help brands do good things. Ruffwear, one of our favorite Oregon brands, just gave us another reason.  Ruffwear launched the Artist Series Quencher™ Dog Bowl And Hat to celebrate humans and their dog-friends exploring our wilds.  The artist series features three unique dog bowls and hats designed by Bend, Oregon artists. A portion of the proceeds from each hat and bowl will go to a non-profit that the artist supports. With three different artists and nonprofits to support, there’s plenty of positive buying power to go around.

Artist Adam Haynes Supports Protect Our Winters

Inspired by Mount Bailey

“In 2007, pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones saw that more and more resorts he’d always counted on for good riding were closed due to lack of snow. Something was clearly going on, and he felt the need to act. But he couldn’t find any organizations focused on mobilizing the snowsports community on climate—there was a gap between the impacts that climate change was already having on our great escapes, and organized action to address it. So Jeremy founded Protect Our Winters.

Pretty quickly, POW brought on other concerned pro athletes, individuals, resorts, brand partners and passionate outdoor enthusiasts. Since then, POW has grown from a kernel of an idea into a worldwide network of more than 130,000 supporters.

This was the perfect group to give a national voice to the outdoor sports community, an industry that supports 7.6 million jobs and creates $887 billion in economic revenue. While the fossil fuel lobby may outspend environmentalists 20-1 in D.C., we share a passion that crosses party lines––a unique perspective that de-politicizes climate discussion––and an industry with an economic impact that can’t be ignored.”

Artist Sheila Dunn Supports The Conservation Alliance

Inspired by the Alvord Desert

The Conservation Alliance is a group of like-mind companies that disburses its collective annual membership dues to grassroots environmental organizations. We direct our funding to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat and outdoor recreation. The Alliance was founded in 1989 by outdoor industry leaders REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, who shared the goal of increasing outdoor industry support for conservation efforts. We now have more than 250 member companies, and plan to disburse more than $2 million in 2020.

Foraging for mushrooms in Oregon

Jesse Dolin’s Side of the Mountains

The appeal of foraging and living off of the land has skyrocketed in recent years. I understand why – it’s romantic and empowering. It’s also overwhelming with serious consequences if you don’t know what you’re doing. As Jesse says – there are better ways to die than eating the wrong mushroom.
