The desire for a healthy planet is a bond that connects an incredibly diverse and accomplished collection of people around the world.
In Planet Service Announcement, a podcast brought to you by 1% for the Planet, you’ll hear fascinating stories from these people—leaders, musicians, photographers, adventurers, environmentalists and everyday people from all walks of life—who have a deep connection to our planet, and a commitment to save it.
Our brand new podcast series captures the essence of the human story and how the beauty of our planet inspires many of us to do more, to seek more and to know more. And it calls to the urgency of our environmental crisis and discusses how the hell we’re going to change our ways to fix it.
Because after all: what do we all have in common? A home on this planet and a responsibility to protect it. Are you with us?
