1 percent for the planet

We donate 1% of our turnover to environmental protection

“To positively change the environment with donations from companies.” This is the declared motto of 1% for the Planet. In 2002, the two owners of the clothing company Patagonia founded the international organization and thus make an important contribution to the maintenance of the environment.

The network now works with nearly 4,000 audited non-profit environmental protection organizations around the world. Over 1,600 companies are already part of the campaign, including us. Find out more on onepercentfortheplanet.org
