Yesterday we received a letter from Atossa Soltani the Founder and Executive Director of AmazonWatch(.org) thanking us for our donating 10% of our sales to their cause. Their tireless work has been an inspiration for all of us on the Inkkas Team and we hope that as we continue to grow as a company and as a brand we can continue to contribute to Amazon Watch and by doing so doing our part to help protect the Amazon rainforst & its inhabitants.
A little about Amazon Watch & What they Do:
Amazon Watch is a Non-Profit, Non-Government Organization that strives to protect the Amazon rainforest & its inhabitants. Established in 1996 and based in San Francisco, California. Amazon Watch works together with other environmental NGO's, indigenous people of the Amazon and certain South American governments to further their goal to help protect the world's largest rain forest.
Amazon Watch works to promote awareness, preservation and protection for the Amazon rain forest and the indigenous people living there. To accomplish this goal Amazon Watch focuses on making corporations accountable for their actions as well as campaigning for human and ecological rights. Amazon Watch aspires to promote respect and understanding for both the Amazonian environment as well as to protect the civil-rights of the indigenous populations who have lived in the Amazon for thousands of years.
