Happy Earth Day - 1% for the Planet and Limmer!
Through the years, the backbone of Limmer wearers have been outdoor professionals, conservation field staff, trail builders, and recreation enthusiasts who love planet earth! We thought to share a few thoughts and how we intend to celebrate Earth Day - each day - moving forward!
- Connection – Establishing a close connection to nature, understanding the historical significance of public spaces, and experiencing the outdoors can transform any individual.
- Relationships – Building relationships, creating opportunities for all, and growing community with one another in the outdoors can transform any group of individuals.
- Stewardship – Preserving those special places and the moments of introspection learned with one another there is a shared responsibility, and something to hold onto as sacred.
To demonstrate our commitment to what we hold as sacred, Limmer Boot Company and Peter Limmer & Sons are now members of 1% for the Planet. We are each proud to donate 1% of our gross sales to two local conservation efforts moving forward.
Limmer Boot Company is excited to partner with the Poudre Wilderness Volunteers (PWV), a group of highly dedicated, organized, and skilled individuals who care for and steward the Canyon Lakes Ranger District in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service. This lean/mean group of volunteers (no paid administrative staff), logs the 2nd most volunteer hours of any group supporting public land efforts in the nation.
Peter Limmer & Sons is excited to partner with the Randolph Mountain Club (RMC), a group of highly dedicated, organized, and skilled individuals who care for and steward the northern slopes of The Presidential Range and Crescent Range in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service. This lean/mean group of volunteers (no paid administrative staff) and professional trail crews have a track record of excellence in the White Mountains National Forest.
More than anything for today, we hope that you will take time to be outside and celebrate earth today! We also hope that you will find comfort in knowing that a percentage of your investment in Limmer will support two great organizations, local to both operations so we can be a part of their unwavering commitment to preserve and steward shared experiences in those sacred outdoor spaces.
If you or any of your family, friends, or colleagues need what we consider to be the best leather hiking boots available in preparation for the 2022 hiking season, feel free to reach out with any questions whatsoever. #goearth
