As one of the world’s leading providers of ergonomic Smart Office solutions, we believe that everyone deserves the means to lead a healthier lifestyle. But why should serving the direct needs of our consumers stop at product design? For Saint Patrick’s Day 2021, the team at Autonomous decided that it was time to think about the bigger picture. It was time to establish other meaningful ways to improve the lives of others. It was time for us all to give back and share some of that lucky four leaf clover. 

Share the luck

In our very first fundraising campaign - Share the Luck This St. Patrick’s Day! - we set out to raise funds to help fight against climate change. From March 16 - 22, we collected $2 from every Autonomous purchase made and donated 100% of all money raised to Earth Island and Climate Action Now! (CAN!). Whether it was one of our electric powered height adjustable SmartDesks, an ergonomic office chair, or one of our many useful Smart Office accessories, every one of your valuable purchases provided much needed aid towards a fantastic cause.

Earth Island Institute supports environmental action projects and helps foster the next generation of environmental leaders. Founded in 1982, for more than three decades, Earth Island has been the organizational home to over 200 environmental action projects and currently has an impressive network of more than 75 projects. These projects span the globe and serve to protect marine life, confront plastic pollution, preserve forests, help protect sacred indigenous sites, and restore wetlands, to name just a few.

Currently, Earth Island supports several initiatives that directly tackle the issue of global climate change such as CAN!, which has a number of active programs that work to cultivate social changes that lead towards more widely practiced sustainability within the community. CAN! Is dedicated to providing clean drinking water, safe open spaces, nutritious organic food, and healthy meaningful work to many. The organization is well known for removing existing grey pavements and replacing them with lush sidewalk gardens, public community gardens, and urban forests. 

Thank You For Helping Share the Luck on Saint Patrick’s Day 2021

We received so much positive feedback in response to our first fundraising campaign. Over the seven days of our Saint Patrick’s Day 2021 fundraiser, Autonomous received a total number of 7,483 orders from within the U.S. alone, which helped to raise an incredible $14,966! All funds raised have been donated to the Earth Island Institute to feed directly towards their CAN! initiative.
