Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) May 28, 2014
For a limited time, customers have the opportunity to help save our wild places just by purchasing $99 or more of Marmot product. Outdoor enthusiasts have the opportunity to give back whether they are searching for a new Marmot rain jacket like the classic PreCip, or if they are planning a camping trip and need a new tent or sleeping bag from Marmot.
Throughout the end of May and the entire month of June, $10 from any $100 Marmot purchase at Rock/Creek will be donated to the Conservation Alliance. Chad Wykle, buyer and Marmot brand manager for Rock/Creek, had this to say about the program: "We're always looking for ways to partner with our vendors to give back to environmental causes that we care about. I'm excited to see how much we can all raise this year! Take this opportunity to refresh your gear for the Summer camping season and help save our wild places all at once."
Roanne Miller, Grassroots President explains, “This is a unique and important partnership that support the independent, outdoor specialty retailer, which ties directly back to local businesses and stimulates those regional economies.” Miller adds, “Working with The Conservation Alliance and Marmot allows us to broaden our reach to help bigger national projects that we really want to support. Marmot’s generosity to help coordinate and drive this promotion shows their commitment to protect wild places and recreational values.
Marmot and the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, with help from Rock/Creek's customers, have already raised over $25,000 through this annual giveback program. “We’ve enjoyed working with Grassroots on this promotion every season,” explains Tom Fritz, Marmot’s Vice President of Marketing. “This spring marks our fourth collaboration with Grassroots and together we’ve raised more than $25,000 for the Conservation Alliance. It’s one of most successful and impactful promotions we’ve done to benefit a non-profit organization.”
Rock/Creek has been a long-time business partner with Marmot, and has been a part of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance nearly since its founding. Together we're committed to giving back to the special places where we all recreate.
