About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global movement that encourages businesses and individuals to take responsibility for the environment by pledging to donate at least 1% of their annual sales or income to environmental causes. The organization was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, the owner of Blue Ribbon Flies.
The core philosophy of 1% for the Planet is that businesses and individuals have a moral obligation to protect and preserve the natural world. By committing to donate 1% of their revenue, they contribute to the funding of environmental initiatives and support organizations working on various environmental issues, such as conservation, climate change, biodiversity, sustainability, and more.
The 1% for the Planet movement has gained widespread recognition and support from environmentally conscious businesses and individuals. Its model of donating a percentage of sales or income has inspired numerous companies to incorporate environmental responsibility into their core values and business practices.
By encouraging businesses and individuals to contribute financially to environmental causes, 1% for the Planet promotes the idea that collective action and financial support are essential for addressing environmental challenges and creating a more sustainable future.
