Good Karma

At Retro Recess, our goal is to reintroduce playtime to grown-ups and help give back in the process. We are dedicated to being an enlightened business, sharing a portion of our proceeds with charitable organizations. We rotate charities on a quarterly basis to include both local and national causes. We also strive to use materials that are politically, socially and environmentally conscious.

This quarter, thanks to your purchases, you are supporting Atlanta's chapter of Pets Are Loving Support.  P.A.L.S. is an Atlanta-based, non-profit 501(C) 3 organization that loves animals and is compassionate about keeping you and your best friend together. They provide pet care including: free food and basic veterinary care, and support to the companion pets of critically ill and disabled Atlantans.
