Today we are excited to announce our partnership with the non-profit, 1% for the Planet. We are committed to sustainability in renewable resources on both a local and national level. Being a member of 1% for the planet means that Palo Santo Supply Co. donates 1% of sales to selected non-profits each year.
1% for the Planet works with us to help select non-profit and NGO organizations in Peru like ECOAN, that protect biological diversity and sustainable handling of natural resources.
About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
Through our business and individual membership, 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of the network.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,400 member businesses, a new and expanding core of hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries.
