We're a Member of 1% for the Planet
We believe that small changes and consistent, daily actions can have a huge impact on the global movement to help our planet. We also believe that organizations committed to this cause need support.
In 2015, we made our annual environmental giving more concrete and transparent by becoming a member of 1% for the Planet, and pledging to donate 1% of our annual sales to non-profit organization that benefit the environment. We took a break a few years later, and then restarted our membership in 2020. 1% for the Planet is a growing network of more than 4,800 environmentally conscious members and brands representing industries and causes that share the same common belief: environmental protection and good corporate citizenship are core business principles and our joint responsibility.
