dd Pears has operated a ethical consumerism program called One Pear, One Dollar, or OPOD, since our inception. OPOD came about from a desire to be a company of substance and character, a global citizen if you will. We may be ‘just another sock company’ (highly debatable because we’re too awesome) but we’re passionate about making a difference in the global community and helping the planet in general.
It’s not only about making great socks for us, it’s about making great socks with a full heart and a network of supporters who understand what we’re trying to achieve. We live in an amazing time of global interconnectedness and we believe in supporting and caring for our global family equally.
So, with each Pear purchased we’ll donate $1 to charity. For those still scratching their heads: if you buy 3 Pears of socks, we'll donate $3 to charity. After your purchase we'll even send you confirmation from your chosen charity of successful donation. Relatively simple right?
On each product page you will notice a drop down selection tool. From here you can allocate how you would like your donation spent. We want to work with you so if there’s a cause close to your heart be sure to select ‘other’ so our team can get in touch and potentially work with your selected charity.
We carefully consider all organisations we donate to and make sure we believe that the funds will be distributed in the most effective way possible at the time. Our charity donation receivers will be reputable organisations which have the capability to effect real change.
If you want to know more about OPOD, please message us! We aim to be completely transparent so if you have any questions we would love for you to get in touch.
