1 Percent for the Planet; 100 Percent for People; The Future Kept
What is 1% for the Planet?
1% for the Planet is an amazing movement dedicated to taking care of our planet by focusing on environmental solutions. They support their non-profit partners which is very important, they are able to operate in sectors where they can target very specific issues with innovative solutions that are usually inaccessible by other parties.
How to get involved in 1% for the Planet?
To become a member, there are currently two different ways in which you can help. Firstly, by having your business donate 1% of its gross sales. In return, 1% for the planet provides advice and helps forge partnerships with other environmental non-profits who share values. This goes a long way in making a significant impact. The second way to join is to become an individual member. This means you can donate 1% of your salary to environmental non-profits.
Then through a certification process, members provide annual documentation of their total sales and proof of monetary, volunteer and in-kind support to approved nonprofit partners.
Protecting the Planet for Future Generations
"One Earth, One Home, One shared Future" is a simple statement of fact. We share one planet and are sustained by the health of its natural systems. It’s even more clear that protecting the Planet is not a luxury, it's fundamental to us all! The focus is on six key areas where environmental issues are arising. Climate, food, land, pollution, water, and wildlife.
Climate is receiving a lot of attention in the news headlines, and changes are coming throughout government legislation to help combat the issues we face. Pollution is also being dealt with strict restrictions from lawmakers around the globe.
Food and water are the very foundations on which our livelihood depends, and an effective and healthy ecosystem is crucial to everyone.
Wildlife and land diversity are also key factors in preserving and protecting the planet for future generations.
