Sugaring in VT
Designed by local artist Cecily Anderson, this patch captures the quintessentially Vermont practice of “sugaring” , the art of collecting sap and turning it into the maple syrup the state is famous for. Cecily describes her inspiration for this piece:.
“I love sugaring because it allows me to get outside and connect with the earth again long before the ground is ready for planting. I collect sap alone, just me in the trees. And then boiling is very social — hours of puttering around with your neighbors in a sugar shack drinking sap coffee and gossiping.”

Where your money goes
With an increasing number of companies pledging x % of their profits to charity, it can be hard to tell how much impact your purchase is really making. We’d rather things be clear as sunrise on a mountain top, after a long hike with good friends, and some coffee….mmm. What were we talking about again?
- ~$1 to artists and designers
- ~$2 to grassroots nonprofits
- ~$2 materials and manufacturing
The rest of your purchase goes towards everything else that it takes to run a business including office space, fulfillment, storage, labor costs, taxes, etc.
Our impact strategy is focused on getting funds to the frontlines of change, to grassroots leaders and organizations that are from the communities they serve.
