ELKHART, IN (June 21, 2018) — Dometic, the global leader in mobile living, today announced its new partnership and donation of $25,000 to Tread Lightly!®, a US-based non-profit dedicated to promoting responsible outdoor recreation through education and stewardship programs. This unique nationwide non-profit delivers critically needed solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing outdoor recreation.
As an official partner for Tread Lightly!, Dometic’s efforts and generous donation will help to ensure millions of outdoor enthusiasts are reached through education campaigns, trail clean-ups across North America, and continued training that promotes Tread Lightly!’s overall goal to help keep the great outdoors healthy, accessible, and open for all.
“We look forward to a robust partnership with Dometic and are excited about their enthusiasm for our mission of protecting outdoor recreation opportunities for future generations,” said Keith Gordon, executive director of Tread Lightly!. “With their donation, we will be able to fund on-the-ground stewardship projects, educational courses and new outreach materials. We’d like to say thank you to Dometic for this opportunity and for their passion for the future and health of the great outdoors.”
“The mission of Tread Lightly! reflects what’s at the heart of the Dometic brand; an appreciation and understanding of needing to take care of the places we love to explore,” said Adam Donahue, mobile cooling business unit director for Dometic. “We are proud to enable this organization in their efforts to protect the future of outdoor access and education that will allow younger generations to enjoy the wonder of exploration that we cherish.”
Dometic and Tread Lightly! will be teaming up and issuing a nationwide challenge campaign geared toward off-highway vehicle enthusiasts to actively clean-up their favorite trails. Additionally, Dometic and Tread Lightly! will hold a joint 4×4 trail stewardship effort in the summer of 2018 during a popular national 4×4 event to improve and repair a popular trail. The exciting details about the unique stewardship challenge and the event clean-up day will be announced shortly.
