The Freshwater Trust: Changing the Course of Conservation

Posted on 27 March 2018

A garment's journey from fabric to fashion is often full of pesticides, oil-powered machinery, and carbon emissions. Unsustainable practices are wreaking havoc on our ecosystems, and water pollution is one of the most pressing of these issues.

Since the fashion industry is such a massive consumer and polluter of fresh water, we strive to do our part to combat this and take responsibility. This is why we love being members of 1% For The Planet. Through this affiliation, a percentage of each purchase you make at EcoVibe Apparel is donated to The Freshwater Trust, an organization pioneering the next generation of conservation.

The Freshwater Trust is the largest restoration-focused organization in the Pacific Northwest with projects throughout Oregon, Idaho, and California. With more than half the rivers and streams in America unhealthy and not functioning how they should, The Freshwater Trust implements data-driven solutions to restore America's waterways faster than we degrade them.

Using their "Quantified Conservation" approach, The Freshwater Trust employs tools to calculate how and where a conservation project will have the largest overall benefit to a watershed. This approach ensures actions are translating to outcomes, and the results have been significant:
