Protect Nature, Embrace Adventure

Protect Nature, Embrace Adventure

Today we celebrate World Environment Day 2024 and recognise the importance of protecting the land for #GenerationRestoration. From our humble beginnings crafting cushions to our current endeavours with The National Project, our ever-growing journey embodies our love for nature and conscious living.

G’day Adventure Tribe,

Happy World Environment Day! Today, we’re hitting pause to celebrate the beautiful, wild places we love to explore and the ways we can protect them. This year’s World Environment Day theme focuses on land restoration, desertification and drought resilience under the slogan “Our land. Our future. We are #GenerationRestoration.” If you’re keen to learn more, check out the UN’s practical guide.

At Pony Rider, we know that our connection to nature and the land isn’t just part of our ethos—it’s at the heart of everything we do. 


A Little Backstory

Our journey began with a simple cushion, a hint of adventure, and a whole lot of heart. Interiors were once dull, uninspired, deficient in personality. Enter Pony Rider, the adventure child of interior land and designer/advocator of a new conscious lifestyle.

From our durable, natural fibre creations to our spirited tribe of nature lovers, we embody a philosophy: less is more, and great design stands the test of time.

The National Project: Our Love Letter to Nature

Today, we’re thrilled to shout out The National Project, our giveback initiative that’s all about nurturing the wild places we cherish. Imagine this: you’re out in the wild, breathing in fresh air, feeling the earth beneath your feet, and knowing that you’re part of something bigger. That’s the magic of nature, and it’s why we’re committed to giving back 1% of our sales to support national parks.

The National Project isn’t just about giving; it’s about doing. It’s about rolling up our sleeves and diving into action-oriented adventures that benefit both people and the planet. Our kick-off project, the Hut Restoration, is proof of our dedication. From donating over 300 hours of creative strategy to contributing $48,000, we’re in it for the long haul. And this is just the beginning!



Why We Do It

We’re not experts in the world of environmental science, but we’re passionate adventurers who believe in the power of nature. When you take care of nature, it takes care of you. It’s as simple as that. The National Project is our way of encouraging everyone to get out there, embrace the wild, and help preserve it for #GenerationRestoration. 

Join Us on This Journey

We’re calling on our tribe to join us in this mission. Every purchase, every adventure, every moment spent in nature helps us move closer to our vision of a world where people and the planet thrive together. So, let’s get out there, get our hands dirty, and make a difference. Whether it’s a hike in the mountains, a campout under the milky way, or simply choosing products that support a sustainable lifestyle, every action counts.


Looking Ahead

As we celebrate World Environment Day, we’re more committed than ever to our long-term vision: inspiring connections to nature, promoting wellness, and creating products that harmonise with our planet. We’ve got big plans and even bigger dreams, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

So, here’s to the wild places, adventures, and the awesome tribe that makes it all possible. Together, we can inspire change and protect the natural world we love so much.

Stay curious, stay adventurous, and don’t stop exploring.
