Values that sustain

Leave every space better than we found it

Whether we’re in a restaurant, or a forest, we believe in leaving every space we enter better when we leave it. For every wild space we enter, we pack all of our gear in, and leave nothing behind except something that will grow — usually a tree.

Think well beyond our own lives

We are always thinking generations beyond.

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

— George Bernard Shaw
