1% for the planet.
Rarely do I advertise, but I think this is an incredible organization. 1% for the Planet was created 10 years ago by a mountain climber and a fisherman. The mountain climber, Yvon Chouinard, a phenomenal man I have mentioned before and his good friend, the fisherman, Craig Mathews created a non profit organization with a mission to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
Theirs is a, “platform of credibility and engagement for environmentally conscious brands that are truly committed to making a positive impact with their business. This global movement of more than 1,100 member companies in 48 countries donate one percent of annual sales directly to approved environmental organizations worldwide.”
