“When I was a boy in Scotland I was fond of everything that was wild, and all my life I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of wild places and wild creatures.” — John Muir, environmental philosopher and founder of the Sierra Club.
Chasing Windmills was born from nature and all of her gifts. Grateful to Mother Nature, we partner with ethical and sustainable ranchers in New Zealand to source our merino wool. Mindful of our own daily impact, we commit to offsetting our carbon footprint.
We are dedicated to the adventurous idealist, to those mamas and papas who wish to share nature’s goodness with their children from birth, and to those kids and grown-ups who are fond of everything wild.
As a family-run business, our kids often see us working. Recently, they asked us: “Mommy and Daddy, what are our jobs? I smiled and responded, “It’s your job to play and get dirty!” And they love their jobs :) Whether they are inventing whole new worlds in their own minds, digging outside in the dirt for worms, or riding their bikes, our kids take their “jobs” seriously!
Like our kids, we take our jobs seriously too. We have a responsibility to preserve Mother Nature’s goodness for our kids.
And so, to celebrate Earth Day, we will be donating 100% of profits from our graphic merino tees for good to the Sierra Club. In the words of its founder, John Muir: “In God’s wildness lies the hope of the world — the great fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness.”
For us, it’s a small investment in the hope of the world. We are forever grateful to you, the supporters of Chasing Windmills, who fulfill this vision. Together, we are committed to making the world a more beautiful place.
