Our new favourite hat

A new way you can support our work is by purchasing a Raincoast Hat!

With a growing team, increased collaborations, and more in person events and field days, our team was keen to sport our logo, which is why we made these super functional, made-to-last hats. Over the last month, we’ve field tested them in the sun, rain, and even snow, and we think they are the perfect hat!

Raincoast hats are truly built for the rain coast with a wax weather-resistant coating that also allows warm weather breathability. The hats are 100% cotton and have a sleek five-panel design with a standard brim and an adjustable strap at the back. They’ll break in nicely and can be re-waxed once the coating eventually wears off. We’ve even heard they can double as a water bowl for thirsty dogs! A local shop embroidered our logo on them.

It was important to us when sourcing the hats to avoid the fast fashion industry, which is why we partnered with Anián, one of our favourite Victoria, BC based shops. Anián is a circular fashion company that was born from the belief that “the clothes we enjoy in the natural world should not be harming it”. They are doing this by using natural fibres, manufacturing in Canada, and transitioning into using entirely recycled natural fibre textiles from landfills. 

Raincoast hats have been reviewed and approved by Dr. Peter Ross, one of our Senior Scientists and Healthy Waters Program Director, who is a stickler for microplastics. 

To celebrate the end of the year, we are so happy to be able to offer matching campaigns on two of our most pressing fundraising initiatives.

All donations to both the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure acquisition and our KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest initiative, will be matched until the end of the year. This is a great opportunity for our supporters, like you, to make your impact go twice as far, while benefiting from tax deductions.

Help us secure KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest on S,DÁYES (Pender Island). Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, Raincoast is raising $2.18 million to purchase a 45 acre coastal property on the edge of the Salish Sea.
