Supporting Our Islands Our Home in June & July

Every two months Dr. Bronner's chooses an organisation we align with to donate proceeds from the first 100 sales of our Deluxe Sample Packs. Throughout June and July we're supporting Our Islands Our Home.

Our Islands Our Home is a campaign led by Torres Strait Islanders to protect their island homes. Torres Strait Islanders are on the frontline of the climate crisis, and urgent action is needed to ensure they can remain on their Islands. King tides, erosion, inundation and coral bleaching are threatening the homes and cultures of Torres Strait Islander people, while the Australian Government refuses to address the climate crisis.

Our Islands Our Home began in 2019 when eight Torres Strait Islanders, the Torres Strait 8, launched an historic climate change litigation case: the first ever human rights complaint made to the UN due to inaction on climate change. On 23rd September 2022 the UNHRC found in the Torres Strait 8’s favour, setting a precedent for Indigenous Peoples all around the world. The campaign has now grown to become a powerful Torres Strait Islander led grassroots climate justice movement.

Sales from the first 100 Deluxe Sample Packs will go towards supporting Our Islands Our Home. These limited-edition packs contain a pin from Clothing the Gaps. Pick up a pack here to help us support their mission. 

To further support the campaign head to the Our Islands Our Home Collection at Clothing the Gaps here where 100% of profits from these products support the Our Island Our Homes Campaign.
