We are very excited to announce that our online Conservation Fundraiser will launch on Saturday 27th June.  You'll be able to get your favourite outdoor gear AND make a difference, raising money for three vital conservation projects. 

Together with our EOCA members, we are committed to the conservation of the great outdoors, supporting organisations and projects that need our help to protect their local wildlife and habitats.

The funds raised will all support conservation projects, including our three newest projects:

  • Forest restoration in Borneo: planting 18,000 seedlings and maintaining 162 hectares of previously reforested sites. 
  • Forest regeneration in the Ester de Cardós Valley, Spain: maintaining and restoring local forests, opening up grasslands and selective thinning of broad-leaved tree woodlands. 
  • Protection of a 50 hectare area of old growth forest in Auvergne, France: purchasing of land and actively contributing to its preservation and survival for future generations.

Find out more about the projects here.

Information from our member companies involved in the campaign, how they are supporting the fundraiser and what they have on offer for you, is detailed below. 

There is a great mix of gear for you to buy, some of which will be available through our campaign partner, community interest (nonprofit) company, Outdoor Gear for Good, from their newly launched eBay store.  They are, very generously, selling donated products from our members, with 100% the proceeds being donated to the EOCA Conservation Fundraiser.  This will start on Saturday 27th June and run over the next month. (Please note, not all items will be listed at the same time, so please keep checking the new Outdoor Gear for Good eBay store to see what is on offer.  All products are subject to availability.)

There will also be a number of our members selling products through their own websites, with varying contributions being made from their sales to our Conservation Fundraiser.  This will start from Saturday 27th June, with some involved for one day, while others will donate profits from across two or four days of website sales. You can read all the details below.
