EARTH DAY is April 22nd!
April 22, 2021 marks the 51st celebration of Earth Day – the world’s largest secular holiday born from a grassroots initiative to turn the US government’s attention to urgent environmental issues.
For each bag sold, Collective Heart will donate $1 to a nonprofit charitable organization that is associated with that cause.

Dr. Jane Goodall discovered that when we put local communities at the heart of conservation, we improve the lives of people,animals and the environment. Everything is connected – everyone can make a difference.
We are super inspired by this incredible woman and her work and wanted to share a little more about why we chose this extremely worthy cause.
She was a true trailblazer and In July 1960, at the age of 26, she traveled from England to what is now Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was one of the first to use the concept of EMPATHY in her research and set the standard for how behavioral studies are conducted.
Since then, she has been an advocate for the environment, animals and the natural world and continues at 86 years old to work hard to help fight the climate crisis. She is also a UN Messenger of Peace.
We particularly love what she has been doing to inspire and educate the youth about environmental and humanitarian issues with the Roots & Shoots program. There are over 150,000 Roots & Shoots groups worldwide in 65 different countries, most of which have been started at a grassroots level.
“Roots creep underground to make a firm foundation. Shoots seem new and small, but to reach the light they can break through brick walls.” – Dr. Jane Goodall
She also has a Girls Scholarship Project which has helped over 300 girls in Tanzania complete their education. In addition to increasing women’s education levels, the scholarship project trains recipients’ families in sustainable farming techniques, as well as forest regeneration and preservation.
Another thing that resonates with us about Dr. Jane Goodall is that she is known around the world for her work towards renewing what may be one of the most powerful resources of all: HOPE
