Why give back?
Our National Parks Service gives us so much. Our founders, Brandon & Brit, have had the privilege to visit about half of our National Parks in their travels and have absolutely fell in love with them. But, they have also discovered that as a country, we don’t do enough to support the amazing landscapes that America's nature has provided for us. The National Park Service is consistently underfunded. There are currently BILLIONS of dollars in deferred maintenance waiting to be completed. We are one of many private organizations that have decided to help do something about that.
How do we donate?
Nomad Nation Gear works a little differently than other apparel companies that support our National Parks Service. Each month, our team selects a park or entity and we make a donation directly.
New Park Every Month
Every sale we make helps fund our national parks. Every month, with your help, we select a National Parks Service entity (National Park, National Seashore, Monument, etc) and make a donation directly to that entity. Please send us a message and let us know which organization you think we should donate to next month! (See the bottom of this page for an archive of places we've selected each month)
How should you donate?
Making purchases through Nomad Nation Gear is one simple way to be a part of giving back. We believe it is important for businesses to give back to various charitable organizations, as we are doing in this way, but clearly the most efficient method of helping our national parks is by donating directly. This way, 100% of the money you donate will go to the park you choose. We encourage you to visit nps.gov to make your direct contribution.
Why Print On Demand?
Stated simply: Less Waste. A lot less waste. We reduce waste as a business by only printing the products ordered and we feel this is another small part of how we give back. We do not have an inventory full of shirts, hoodies, or other products that could potentially end up in a landfill.
