REFRAME VOLUNTEERING

The ReFrame Life program provides ReFramers with a day of volunteering at an organization of their choice every year. It’s up to each team member to initiate and choose who they’d like to support, allowing individuals to proactively make choices that are close to their heart and contribute directly to their communities.

SKIPPER OTTO x RE/FRAME

Supporting small scale Canadian fishing families

SKIPPER OTTO

Skipper Otto Community Fisheries is keeping independent small-scale fishing alive in Canada, protecting our valuable ocean resources, and ensuring customers have direct access to wild, sustainable BC seafood. They work with independent, local fishermen, treating them with dignity and transparency, and paying living wages for their high quality, sustainably harvested catch.

Not only do we love the team at Skipper Otto (they’re friends and the office next door!), but we love their mission and products. So much so that ReFrame employees get treated to a shared yearly subscription of the season’s catch. That means the team gets to eat delicious seafood that prioritizes taste and quality while knowing where each fish is from and who caught it! See how it works here.

OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

We are proud to be a Climate Positive Company, offsetting more than double the greenhouse emissions that we produce. 

We are currently invested in the Offsetters Synergy Portfolio, a collection of projects from British Columbia and Uganda that have benefits extending beyond their climate positive attributes and into the communities they reside within.
