Hydro Flask has announced the recipients of its 2020 Parks For All charitable giving programme.

The firm will be donating $501,400 in grants to sixteen nonprofit 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 Parks For All charitable programme supports the development, maintenance and accessibility of public green spaces across the globe. The programme aims to ensure these 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 programme is awarding $50,000 in grants to two UK organisations:

Surfers Against Sewage ($25,000) and the Lake District Foundation ($25,000)

“The 2020 grants are an indication of our continued efforts to make an impact through our partnerships in the realm of building, restoring, maintaining and increasing access and education around parks,” said Indigo Teiwes, Senior Corporate Responsibility Magager for Hydro Flask. “In less than three years, Hydro Flask has now given over $1.5 million in grants through Parks For All. Our staff is so proud of the work being done through these granteees and is excited to see these efforts carried forward into 2020 and beyond through this new round of grants.”
