Nomadix Lists Its Top Partner Organizations Of 2022
As 2022 comes to a close, we at Nomadix wanted to update everyone on the causes that were close to our hearts this year. Nothing means more to us than the causes that give back to our people and our planet. At Nomadix, generosity is a core belief that we keep in mind with every action. We are part of 1% For The Planet, in which we are committed to donating 1% of all our sales, not just profits, back to environmental causes. For us, we wanted to create a patchwork community, because sustainability only happens when we work together. Though we work with these organizations throughout the year, we wanted to give everyone the opportunity to join us and donate to support our partners who are making a difference in their communities.
