1% for the Planet is a global alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.
Since this year, we are a part of the 1% For the Planet community and will be pledging 1% of our sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. Instead of giving this money to 1% For the Planet we will be giving the dollars directly to approved nonprofits of our choice and in return we will receive a certification from 1% For the Planet. The direct contact to the nonprofits is more efficient and quicker, 1% For the Planet helps with expert guidance.
Our planet can’t wait!
The evidence is overwhelming: climate change is an imminent threat, our food systems are increasingly stressed, and our lands, waters, and species are threatened like never before. If we don’t act now, the viability of our planet and our quality of life – to say nothing of the health of our economy – face an existential threat.
If you’re a business owner (or have any influence over your boss), please consider becoming a member of this socially and environmentally progressive group. By contributing 1% of total annual sales to grassroots environmental groups, members of 1% for the Planet affect real change. And members receive other benefits: The satisfaction of paving the way for more corporate responsibility in the business community and the recognition, support and patronage of conscientious consumers who value serious commitment to the environment.
