For those of us lucky enough to spend time in places like Georgian Bay, time in nature is easy to take for granted. It’s a chance for us to unplug from the digital world and get back to basics – friends, family, fun. But many Canadians never get the chance to dive into a clear lake or spot wildlife or spend a night under the stars. That’s why we’ve created Project Connect. Project Connect supports organizations and initiatives that help to connect Canadians with nature, with a special emphasis on those who face barriers to getting into the outdoors. Why? Because we believe that time in nature isn’t just good for the human spirit, it can improve health, foster learning and promote conservation. And it’s just plain fun. In short, connecting with nature helps us connect with ourselves and one another on a deeper level. And that’s what Georgian Bay Spirit Co. is all about.
A portion of our sales goes to Project Connect so that as we grow, so does our ability to connect more and more Canadians with nature, and one another. In other words, every time you buy one of our products, you can feel good knowing that you are helping create amazing nature experiences for Canadians who may not otherwise have had the chance.
