1% For The Planet, Inc.

Our Mission

1% for the Planet exists to build, support, and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.

1% for the Planet is a network of innovative and passionate individuals representing over 1200 businesses, 3000 non-profits, and nearly 1000 supporters.

Collectively, we have created a widely recognized brand, working at the intersection of business and the environment to increase funding for the environmental sector.  If (PRODUCT) RED can do it for AIDS and Susan G. Komen can do it for breast cancer, we know that 1% can do it for the Planet.

In 13 years, 1% for the Planet member companies have donated over $130MM to environmental non-profits globally. Long-term partnerships between non-profits and member companies have been formed for greater environmental impact. And we are just beginning to realize the collective power of the 1% for the Planet network to change hearts and minds in the environmental movement.

In an effort to share the depth, character, and commitment that encompasses the 1% for the Planet network, we offer some recent highlights.

In 2013, 1% for the Planet member companies donated more than $25 million to environmental non-profits globally.

New members like Caudalie, Salt Spring Coffee, and EnviroKidz fueled our growth in international markets. 

Market-place collaborations like Patagonia’s Advocate Moc or Klean Kanteen’s co-branded water bottle engaged consumers in a meaningful way.

Issue-based Campaigns like Smock’s “Change the World” stationary series helped raise awareness about the pressing environmental issues of hydraulic fracturing while raising money for non-profit partner Earthworks.

Non-profit Support: The Surfrider Foundation and The Penoboscot River Restoration Trust felt the power of 1% for the Planet network through successful project funding. 

And Sweet Harmony: Forest Sun and Ingrid Serban from Painted Sun Records joined as members and wrote us a sweet tune to celebrate.

Collectively we are created a powerful ripple effect across both the business and the natural world. Join 1% for the Planet today to help keep Earth in business.
