Wow, we just read all about the outdoor lifestyle brand @parksproject
magazine and we are blown away by their mission and success! What an inspiration!
Did you know the U.S. National Parks are facing a $11.6 BILLION backlog of maintenance work? Well, in the past three years the company Parks Project has donated more than $200,000 and 1,000 volunteer hours to restore our national parks. They have achieved this by donating a portion of each sale of their National Parks apparel (so make sure you check their amazing collection out!) We experienced some of this maintenance backlog ourselves. Back in March of this year we had the chance to visit @biscaynenps
, which was still
in need of repair in some parts of the park after September 2017’s devastating hurricane Irma. And this is just one of the many projects the National Parks face.
