GROUNDED IN GIVING BACK
Created in honor of a late friend who touched the lives of many, AGMES is a tribute to the power of kindness. Our friend’s mission was simple: to leave the world better than he found it. His passion is our commitment, one that makes philanthropy an integral part of everything we do.
Beyond creating distinctive and enduring pieces, we support a range of causes close to our hearts—from protecting human rights and fighting racism to ending hunger and seeking solutions to the environmental crisis—by pledging a percentage of our online sales to exceptional nonprofit organizations. A new philanthropic partner is selected and spotlighted every few months.
Through April 30, 2021, we are donating 5% of online sales to Kiss the Ground. The subject of a must-watch Netflix documentary, this Los Angeles-based nonprofit is inspiring participation in global regeneration, starting with soil. Its mission is to educate people around the world about regenerative agriculture: an approach to farming that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our water supplies, and feed the world. Kiss the Ground also supports farmers and ranchers in their transition to regenerative practices.
“The story of regeneration and the ability to heal the soil is a very hopeful message. It really is possible, and it gives humanity a horizon to step into,” says Ryland Engelhart, co-founder and executive director of Kiss the Ground. “We can use our ingenuity to work with the ecological technology of nature that's developed over 500 million years, working in concert with that system versus working against it.”
