Fostering a spirit and love for the outdoors.
Cotopaxi meets two of the IMPACT Requirements: Individual Responsibility, Materials, and Charitable Proceeds.
Cotopaxi strives for a social mission while being an outdoor gear brand, targeting the millennial consumer. While commiting to foster a spirit and love for the outdoors, Cotopaxi’s social mission is to donate 1% of their annual revenue to the Cotopaxi Foundation. These funds are granted to nonprofit partners in order to advance sustainability, improve the human condition, and alleviate global poverty.
Davis Smith, the founder, grew up in Latin America and lived in Ecuador, home to the Cotopaxi Volcano (hence the name). Exploring and adventuring around Cotopaxi National Park, Davis discovered his spirit for the outdoors. Then in 2014, Davis along with his friends founded Cotopaxi with five outdoor backpacks for sale and a website.
