what we do
A passion to educate and inform the world about glacial melt
The Glacier Rescue Project is a brand and non-profit organization centered around the desire to better incorporate graphic design and climate change visuals into environmentalism. This is done with the intention set on educating consumers about mass glacial melt and promoting solutions to the looming issue as well. We are concerned with the issue that the most dramatic climate change is happening in areas of the world where few people live or visit– the glacial regions. Furthermore, the only people who actually see the scary reality of mass glacial melt are the few individuals fortunate enough to travel to these locations– an extremely small percentage of the world’s population. To compensate for this issue, we are spreading imagery and educational material to inform the world about what is really happening to the world’s glaciers and icecaps.
Our current mission is to help spread awareness for climate change through various visual mediums and and raising money for the current environmental movement through the sale of climate change inspired apparel. We are committed to donating 20% of our profits to environmental groups fighting climate change that are already doing great work to protect our planet. With this effort, we hope to act as a hybrid between an environmental organization and an outdoor brand. Our goal aims to use appealing visuals and intriguing climate information to engage audiences who would not normally be involved in environmentalism.
