We are a proud 1% for the Planet member and donate 1% of all sales.
If you are not familiar, in 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement to pair businesses and individuals with approved environmental nonprofits, creating high-impact partnerships that amplify the impact of members’ giving.
We just donated to some of our 2020 1% for the Planet partners.
Each year as the environment shifts and changes our focus will too. This is just the beginning, and we have wild plans of expanding our partners further worldwide with multiple opportunities.
So far this year we have kept it pretty local and donated to:
Wildcare Tasmania (Bonorong project): Wildcare Tasmania is a community of volunteers and donors caring for Tasmania's wild places, wildlife and cultural heritage.
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is Tasmania’s largest 24/7 Wildlife Rescue Service, a social enterprise with a big heart, providing eco-education and experiences for guests. They proactively address problems in the surrounding environment and communities.
Greening Australia (Tasmanian Island Ark project): An environmental enterprise that thinks big to tackle the challenges facing Australia’s unique and diverse landscapes in ways that work for communities, economies and nature.
Tasmania Island Ark is working with landholders, researchers and community to relink and restore vital habitat across the midlands, creating a stronghold for some of Australia’s most critically endangered animals.
Bush Heritage Australia: (specifically for their work with bush fire recovery after the recent bushfire disaster): Bush Heritage Australia is an independent not-for-profit that buys and manages land, and also partners with Aboriginal people, to conserve magnificent landscapes and irreplaceable native species forever.
It's not huge, but it's just a start and we are so happy to be able to support the planet through amazing organisations.
