Restore Human is a proud 1% for the Planet Member
The meaning of sustainable human fitness for us is twofold: it concerns sustainability in regards to human movement and wellness practices, as well as defines our vision in environmental connection to the planet.
Sustainable practice of human movement, in our view, really comes down to moving in the way your body evolved to move, at a sustainable pace and in various environments, on diverse terrain. We strive to empower you to create healthy movement habits that you can keep up, use natural surroundings as your gym and build you up to be strong, capable and adventure ready.
A big part of our mission is to eliminate the disconnect people feel in regards to the environment and we believe the best way to do this is by thoughtfully engaging with your surroundings through movement. We want to empower and inspire you to opt outside a little bit more, explore and appreciate nature, conserve and protect the wild places.
Restore Human is heavily inspired by Patagonia’s business practices and its philosophy of reducing environmental impact - we believe it is an individual’s responsibility to take care of their habitat and not cause damage. The philosophies of conducting business the ethical way, thoughtful sourcing of material goods, as well as strategies of environmental advocacy described in both “Let My People Go Surfing” and “Tools for Grassroots Activists” are highly reflective of our coaches’ and members’ values.
We are constantly looking for ways to give back and support organizations that enact positive change as part of the environmental movement. For this reason, Restore Human is a proud member of 1% for the Planet, whose belief that “health and wellness come from the environment, that business is responsible for positive change and that we can leave this big blue planet better than we found it”, as well as their mission “to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet” resonates with us deeply.
On the local level in the near future we are looking to provide our support, skills and time to environmental NGOs in Vancouver and work together to promote and further conservation efforts in our home of British Columbia.
We are inspired by individuals and organizations that are working tirelessly to preserve land, mountains, forests, rivers, oceans and their biodiversity both locally and globally. If these ideas speak to you and reflect your passion for sustainability, connect with us at email@example.com - we would love to meet you.
