Nature Deficit Disorder is a term coined by Richard Louv in his 2005 book Last Child in the Woods. It hypothesizes a link between adults that don't spend enough time out in nature and certain behavioural problems. We've taken an interest in this and promote the benefits of the great outdoors.
Benefits of Time Spent in Nature:
- A decrease in anxiety and depression
- Promotion of curiosity in the outdoors
- An increase in respect for the natural world
- Physical activity
- Combats obesity
- Helps with attention span length
- And many more!
The Tall Grass Fund was created to promote the great outdoors and to help curb the effects of nature deficit disorder. A portion of all our shirts goes into the fund which will in turn aid programs that encourage outdoor exploration whether it be camping equipment for youth groups or playground equipment in areas that need it - we aim to help.
Together we can combat Nature Deficit Disorder
“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”
We encourage you to read up on this topic and spread the word. All proceeds from any book bought from the list below also goto the Tall Grass Fund!
