As lovers of the outdoors, we at Diamond Brand Company believe that our commitment to the environment extends beyond crafting eco-friendly gear.

Today on Giving Tuesday, we want to share a passion close to our hearts. So we’d like to share to the incredible work of some outdoors- and sustainably-focused charities.
Much like the durable threads that weave through our tents, these organizations are stitching together a tapestry of conservation, education, and community engagement. So join us today as we give back and help make a positive impact. Remember, your favorite local or national outdoor charities ensure the trails we love remain pristine for generations to come.
