We ask a lot of our members, 1 percent to be exact. But where does that money go? Directly to the environmental nonprofits we’ve researched and approved. Currently, there are over 1,500 of these groups that we have okayed to receive donations from member companies. We’ve researched them all to ensure credibility and alignment with our environmental criteria. Our work ensures that those organizations supported by 1% for the Planet members are bona fide environmental groups, with clear objectives and a track record of effective environmental initiatives.
Every one of the eligible nonprofits is listed in our database and on our web site. These groups work at local, regional, national or international levels, on all sorts of environmental causes, on behalf of all of us. With continued support, their efforts can, and will, make a difference while encouraging prospective members to join our growing alliance of businesses. In the end, it’s the planet that truly profits.
