Proud Pour shares the mission of our environmental restoration partners, which is to protect and heal this planet.
To support our environmental partners in their critical restoration work, we give them 5% of our top-line revenue, 5x the typical give back company.
These science-based environmental nonprofits we support are the superstars. You couldn't find a more hardworking, dedicated group, except possibly a colony of oysters filtering hundreds of thousands of gallons of water daily.
Wild oyster reefs are a critical ecosystem in our North American estuaries, and we've lost more than 90% of them. When you enjoy farmed oysters, which are sustainable, oyster restoration nonprofits can collect the shell from the raw bar, plant baby oysters on them, and put them back in the water to rebuild our wild reefs!Oyster Projects
For every 1 in 3 bites of food on your plate, you can thank a bee or other pollinator. So clearly bees are very important! But did you know that pollinating alongside the domesticated honey bee in North America are 3,600 species of wild, native bees, none of which make honey? These native bees pollinate our crops and ecosystems free of charge and generally go unnoticed and unappreciated. Planting native flowering plants creates bee habitat and forage and is a critical way to protect these little creatures.Bee Projects
Did you know coral reefs make up just 1% of the ocean floor but support 25% of all marine life? This astonishing habitat is under terrible threat from warming waters, destructive fishing practices, and other human impacts. Fortunately, intrepid scientists are hard at work breeding corals to make them more resilient and to restore damaged reefs. We'll raise a glass to that!Coral Reef Projects
Sea turtles play an important role in the ocean ecosystem - controlling jellyfish, helping sea grass grow, and cleaning sponges from coral reefs. They also face significant threats from outdated fishing practices, boat strikes and coastal development, plastic pollution, and climate change. Sea turtle hospitals take in sick or injured turtles that have become stranded and rehabilitate them so they can go back to the big blue!Sea Turtle Projects
