1% for the Planet
In our recent post, “Small Steps”, we discussed how the journey toward sustainability could involve small steps taken together to build a better world. We are excited to announce that we have taken another step in scaling Mount Sustainability. Ākāśa Innovation has just joined 1% for the Planet, a growing global movement of over 1,350 member companies in 43 countries that donate one percent of their sales to environmental organisations worldwide. As a non-profit member, we are part of a network of over 3,000 non-profits worldwide, and over $100 million has been funnelled to these organisations to date. Yvon Chouinard, founder of 1% for the Planet, explains that “the intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organisations so that collectively they can be a more powerful force in solving the world’s problem”.
We are honoured to be a member of this force for positive change and look forward to supporting other environmental initiatives. We are also eligible to receive donations from 1% member companies, so if you are interested in sponsoring scholarships for our Young Pioneers Programme or supporting EARTHtalks, please get in touch with us. Together, we can take more steps to shape sustainable futures for all.
