At Gathering Green we actively give something back with a percentage of profits donated to one of 2 charities: World Land Trust and the Marine Conservation Soceity, both of which, we believe, are doing amazing work to help clean and protect our planet.
If you would like to add a voucher to your purchase we will direct that straight to the charity on your behalf.
A little about each charity and what they do....
Marine Conservation Trust
The Marine Conservation Society is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. For over thirty years MCS has been the voice for the sea for all the fascinating creatures that live beneath the waves, for our breath-taking coastal environment, for all those who make a sustainable living from the sea and for everyone who simply enjoys visiting the beach and our glorious coastline.
We believe too much is being taken out and too much is being put into our seas and are passionate about creating a sustainable future for our seas.
MCS has achieved major successes in protecting special wildlife, tackling sewage problems, helping the seafood-buying public, and influencing Government and industry.
Today, more than 11,000 supporters fund our work through membership, donations, and turtle adoption schemes. And more than 15,000 MCS volunteers clean up our beaches each year, and help us tackle marine litter at source.
Many millions of people are now aware of our vital work through our sustainable seafood, pollution and wildlife programmes, wildlife recording surveys, campaigns and education work.
