1% for the Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
We are a growing global movement of over 1,400 member companies - small and large - in 45 countries, who donate at least 1% of annual sales to environmental organizations. Founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia and Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% members have donated over $70 million to envioronmental causes. 1% members donate directly to approved non-profits allowing them to remain closely connected to the issues they care about.
