Ever wonder how 1% for the Planet began?
It all started when two businessmen met and bonded over their shared love for the outdoors. Realizing their responsibility to protect our planet, they decided to give 1% of their sales back to the environment—whether or not they were profitable.
All together for the planet. We say that a lot - because we mean it. We can do far more together than we can alone. And, saving our planet takes more than what one person, company or organization can do on its own. That’s where we come in.
Since our inception in 2002, 1% for the Planet has helped to direct hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental nonprofits around the world. However, we didn’t do it alone. 1% for the Planet is a network of like-minded individuals, businesses, donors and nonprofit organizations working together toward a common goal: protecting the future of our planet.
