As some of you may know, Greenvelope donates a percentage of every sale to Mountains to Sound, a nonprofit organization near Seattle. The organization maintains the 1.5 million acres of forest surrounding I-90, also known as the Greenway.¬†Their mission is to “lead and inspire action to conserve and enhance the landscape from Seattle across the Cascade Mountains to Central Washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature.”¬† The Greenway, inspired by the idea of weaving together the urban and the wild, has been designated as the country’s National Scenic Byway.
Currently the organization is working to designate the Greenway as a National Heritage Area. Official recognition of the Greenway will demonstrate the national significance of this landscape, empower partners to work together more efficiently, enhance funding opportunities and formalize the Greenway coalition’s cooperative management style across this broad landscape. Over 1,000 people have signed their petition to make this happen. ¬†Voice your support
