The one value that underpins everything we do is environmental sustainability. From our team to our clients, to our community, we believe that our actions should surround sustainability.
Our first step is involvement in our community. Our leaders strive to aid charities with environmentalist goals. We want to show what it means to be part of a bigger community with a global mission to protect our planet.
Our second step is an inspiration. We know we can’t change the world by ourselves – so we want to inspire change in others. We believe that with every person who embraces the CLEAR Living lifestyle, the world will become a better place. Whether environmental or personal, we know that small changes can see big results.
We vow to only support foundations, individuals and brands who uphold these values and strive for sustainability in their endeavours as well. We seek to breathe truth in every action we take and we will never sacrifice our values. Corporate responsibility influences every decision we make.
Charities We Value
Every Choice Counts.
When it comes to our everyday lives, we believe that sustainability is more than just environmental preservation. It’s social, economic, and environmental awareness. It’s doing things in ways that are mindful. It’s being aware of the impact of our choices – big and small.
We are driven by sustainability and we know we aren’t the only ones. There are many organizations out there doing incredible work that sends inspiration to our spirits. We want to highlight some of them that are making the positive impact we wish to see in the world.
Forming in Canada, Greenpeace has reached the global impact we aspire to attain. Greenpeace states its goal is to “ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity” and focuses its campaigning on worldwide issues such as climate change, deforestation, overfishing, commercial whaling, genetic engineering, and anti-nuclear issues. This all-encompassing span of issues on all life is an inspiring undertaking, with an influential outcome.
The David Suzuki Foundation is a national non-profit organization that works to conserve and protect the natural environment and helps create a sustainable Canada. For many of us here in Canada, this man’s face is the forefront for the environmental movement. He has brought change on a global level and we aspire to be his counterpart in spirit.
The World Wildlife Fund- Canada is the country’s largest international conservation organization. Their mission is to reverse the decline of wildlife by working toward the improvement and maintenance of freshwater and marine ecosystems; toward preservation for the future of the Arctic; toward resilient communities across the country that enhance nature. We share this planet we live on and we believe all life is equal. This means that we need to be mindful of our human impact on creatures who share our resources and ensure that they continue to live unhindered.
Closer to home for us, the Bruce Trail Conservancy is dedicated to protecting a Conservation Corridor along the Niagara Escarpment that contains the Bruce Trail. One of the largest land preservation trusts, the Conservancy now overlooks the protection of over 10,000 acres on the Niagara Escarpment. Among constant development pressures, it is the work of charities like these that make us believe in the power of sustainability.
Finally for the first time, provincial, territorial, indigenous and federal governments are focused on working together to engage and enhance the protection of our land. With government backing, CPAWS is at the forefront for implementing these inspiring changes. CPAWS is the only Canadian charity that is focused exclusively on protecting public land and water domains. To put this in perspective, 90% of Canada’s land is public and 100% of our oceans are public. Charities with a narrow focus can often bring about widespread change.
This organization takes an approach close to our heart: community building and takes on corporate responsibility in spades. EcoTrust works on economic benefits for communities so they can have the means to better themselves and have full control of their future. We love how EcoTrust is bringing sustainability to communities with full social, economic, and environmental means.
