1% for the planet
Soil Association is a nonprofit partner of 1% for the Planet, a global organisation leading a network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet.
Launched in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, former owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, their network consists of more than 1,100 member companies and thousands of approved nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries.
Brands whose products and services feature the 1% for the Planet logo give 1% of sales annually to nonprofit organisations dedicated to protecting the environment, and this partnership has greatly expanded the potential pool of funding to which Soil Association can look to for support.
"1% for the Planet member businesses donate at least 1% of their annual sales to support environmental nonprofits," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. "We believe deeply that these nonprofits play a critical role in solving the many challenges facing our planet, and our core work is to grow the corporate support that enables these nonprofits to accomplish even more."
