Have you heard of Cotopaxi? I hadn’t until recently.
**Cotopaxi (https://www.cotopaxi.com/) is a company founded on the principals of making a difference, moving people to do good, and inspiring new adventures. They also make really cool backpacks and other great gear such as jackets, water bottles, and tents. Here is a little video on Cotopaxi: https://vimeo.com/101418328.
I was inspired by Cotopaxi to write a post about a way I live a healthy lifestyle and, after giving it some thought, I couldn’t decide on just one way so here’s a little about me and how I live healthily:
**What Cotopaxi does: “We create innovative outdoor products and experiences that fund sustainable poverty alleviation, move people to do good, and inspire adventure.Cotopaxi funds solutions that address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty. Giving is core to our model. As a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation, Cotopaxi has made a commitment to creating positive social impact. We focus our efforts on global poverty alleviation & give targeted grants to advance health, education, and livelihoods initiatives around the world.”
“Our grantmaking represents our belief in the power of holistic development model. We focus on three pillars which we believe are inextricably linked and crucial to creating a sustainable pathway out of poverty. Within each pillar, we have identified specific poverty indicators against which we track our outcomes and success.”
