Hydro Flask’s Parks For All Programme

Hydro Flask, the award-winning supplier of high-performance, insulated stainless steel bottles and soft good innovations has announced the recipients of its 2020 Parks For All charitable giving programme.

Hydro Flask will be donating $501,400 in grants to sixteen non-profit organisations whose missions align with building, maintaining, restoring or providing better access to public green spaces globally.  Projects range from trail maintenance to education for children through the outdoors to protecting oceans and beaches from plastic pollution.

Launched in 2017, the programme supports the development, maintenance and accessibility of public green spaces across the globe allowing people to live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives. It aims to ensure these special places get the attention and protection they deserve through ground activities, digital and advocacy initiatives and social media campaigns.

To date, Parks For All has supported 92 non-profits, given over $1,500,000 in cash grants and donated more than 26,000 bottles. In Europe, the Parks For All programme is awarding $50,000 in grants to two organisations:

UK: Surfers Against Sewage ($25,000)

UK: Lake District Foundation ($25,000)

Surfers Against Sewage

UK charity, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), was established in 1990 to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife. The second year Hydro Flask will be supporting the cause, the grant will be put towards training its network of Regional Rep volunteers. Hugo Tagholm, Chief Executive of Surfers Against Sewage said, “We’re delighted to be working with Hydro Flask through the Parks For All scheme again in 2020. Their support in 2019 enabled us to deliver fantastic training for our volunteers, ensuring we have an incredible network of trained Regional Representatives caring for the marine environment throughout the UK.” SAS will use the grant ‘to inspire, unite and empower dynamic leaders across the UK to lead conservation activities and campaigns.’

Lake District Foundation

The Lake District National Park is home to England’s highest mountains and deepest meres so it’s no wonder the area sees 20 million visitors per year. To help maintain this area for enjoyment now and into the future, the Fix the Fells project will utilise the grant from Parks For All to deliver upland footpath repair.
