Why Shop From Us?

We know that there are always other retailers out there offering you similar products and that often it's hard to figure out why you should buy from one over another. It can be an easy decision to make because when you shop from Our Earth First, you are not only supporting a passionate small business, but you are also supporting charities. This is because we donate 5% of every product sold, to charities that do incredible work to support our environment and its inhabitants.

In addition, we highlight one of these charities every quarter and give you the opportunity to donate a little extra to them personally whenever you purchase any of our products. You'll see this option when you check-out your cart.

It's been our experience that people do care and do want to help, but are often unsure where to start and get so busy with their daily pressures, that before they know it, time has gone by and they haven't taken the action they intended to. We wanted to make it easier for our customers to contribute towards this shared goal of being a culture that supports sustainable eco-friendly living, conservation and drastically reducing our carbon footprints.

Here is a bit more info on the wonderful charities that we support:

Charity Water www.charitywater.org - is a non-profit organisation that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Over 663 million people worldwide do not have running water. Many of these people have to leave their houses and walk 5 miles just to get water, which is not clean and certainly not safe. The work that charity water does changes lives, empowers communities and makes an immediate impact.

    One Tree Planted Inc www.onetreeplanted.org - is a non-profit organisation on a mission to create a world full of trees. They have reforestation partners in North America, South America, Asia and Africa. Depending on the project, their partners choose the best tree species to plant and work with local communities to get them in the ground. Their projects help with restoration from forest fires and floods, as well as creating jobs, building communities, and protecting habitat for biodiversity.

    Ocean Conservancy www.oceanconservancy.org - is a non-profit organisation that seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it. Today, they’re dedicated to finding solutions to the biggest threats facing our ocean. They know that they can’t solve those problems without our support. We all depend on a healthy ocean for the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.The ocean is our responsibility, what happens to it impacts all of us.

    African Wildlife Foundation www.awf.org - is a non-profit organisation who's mission is to ensure that wild life and wild lands thrive in a modern Africa. They recognize that Africa’s wildlife resources and ecosystems are critical to the future prosperity of Africa and its people. They focus on key African species that are at huge risk due to poachers and their natural habits being destroyed. These include elephants, rhinos, lions and other large carnivores, mountain gorillas and Africa’s other great apes.

    We believe that any success that we might share, will be that much sweeter when we are able to share contributions with these organisations and hope to be able to update our customers with news of exciting donations made possible by the collaborative efforts of our customers and ourselves.
