At L.L.Bean, we believe in the power of the outdoors to bring people together. Check out our latest efforts to get entire communities outside – and in the process, create a more sustainable world.

We focus on three critical ways that our business can make the world more sustainable: Environmental Impact, Social Impact and Product Quality.


This fund helps organizations around the U.S. that increase access to the outdoors and promote environmental stewardship.
