We are a member of 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses, nonprofits, and individuals working together for a healthy planet. They connect dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving, and we recognize that the current level of environmental giving—only 3% of total philanthropic giving goes to environmental causes—is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
To date, they have certified over $300 million in donations to our environmental nonprofit partners. These organizations work on issues that focus on bettering the planet, like climate advocacy, food policy, wildlife restoration, and much more. 1% for the Planet was founded to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability.
This past year, 1% for the Planet certified $66 million in giving to environmental partners and welcomed +1,800 new business members into their global network. Along with that, the team surpassed their Challenge Grant goal by 50% — raising $375,835 total. The 1% for the Planet certification is given to businesses and individuals that meet their high-bar commitment and donate 1% of annual sales or salary to environmental causes.
Our brand takes pride in being a member of 1% for the Planet. We hope you will, too, with each and every purchase made at Play Salty.
