Our Founders

Christopher Banas

Hi! I’m Chris, an outdoor enthusiast passionate about travel and exploration. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some of the world’s most beautiful places. This helped me develop a strong connection to nature. Over the years, I would return to places and see the conditions deteriorate.

Many messages around protecting the environment are negative, leaving us feeling at fault. I see the need to change the conversation. To inspire others with achievable ways to protect the environment.

We started Natural Dividends to bring a simple message to people. Creating a pathway to “Increase Nature’s Share.”

Some of my favorite memories from my childhood were spent in nature. I loved exploring the woods right in my backyard from an early age. A formative experience, it ingrained a deep love and respect for nature. Over the years, this has become a passion for the outdoors and hiking in particular.
I’ve had the opportunity to travel and see how different communities and cultures relate to their local environment. The environment doesn’t get a seat at the table in many places. We are at a pivotal point in history and need to change our interaction and relationship with nature.
Being outdoors instilled in me the importance of symbiotic relationships with nature. My goal with Chris and co-creating Natural Dividends is to create a community that sees value in the environment and works to Increase Nature’s Share.
