1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses that donate one percent of annual sales directly to approved environmental nonprofit organizations. More than 1000 member companies in 40 countries give back to the environment through more than 4000 nonprofit partners. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, former owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet helps people buy better products and protect the planet we play on. To date, our network has given more than $130 million back to the planet. To learn more go to: www.onepercentfortheplanet.org.
We are very thrilled to be running a global nonprofit organization in this great city of Burlington, VT. With our new CEO, Kate Williams, at the helm we are working hard on our 2016-2020 plans, we are excited to share them with you. Come and learn about how the growing 1% for the Planet movement is working at the intersection of business and the environment to create impact both in the local community and beyond.
