Discover our partnership with 1% for the planet.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness and concern about the impact that human activity is having on the environment. As a result, many individuals and organizations are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to sustainability efforts. One such organization that has gained popularity in recent years is 1% for the Planet.

1% for the Planet is a global nonprofit organization that was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, the owner of Blue Ribbon Flies. The organization's mission is to help protect the planet by encouraging companies and individuals to commit to donating at least 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes.

The idea behind 1% for the Planet is simple: if businesses commit to donating 1% of their sales to environmental causes, the collective impact could be significant. By channeling financial resources to environmental nonprofits, 1% for the Planet hopes to create positive change in the areas of climate, land, ocean, wildlife, and communities.

Since its inception, 1% for the Planet has grown significantly. The organization has over 3,000 members in more than 60 countries, and its members have donated over $300 million to environmental nonprofits. The organization's members include a variety of companies, from small startups to large corporations like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's.

One of the key benefits of 1% for the Planet is that it allows businesses of all sizes to make a meaningful contribution to environmental causes. By committing to donate 1% of their sales, even small businesses can make a significant impact on the planet. Additionally, 1% for the Planet provides a way for businesses to align their values with their actions, helping to build brand loyalty and increase customer engagement.

But 1% for the Planet isn't just about businesses. Individuals can also make a difference by supporting the organization's member companies and by making donations directly to 1% for the Planet. The organization has also launched an initiative called "Individual Membership," which allows individuals to pledge to donate 1% of their annual salary to environmental causes.
