1% For The Planet
1% FOR THE PLANET
I am a member of "1% for the Planet", 1% of our proceeds from your wedding are donated to support environmental organizations.
1% for the Planet exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
Corporate philanthropy in America averages somewhere around one-tenth of 1% of sales. It represents only 4% of total charitable giving. While Americans gave a record $306 billion to charity in 2007, the environment received significantly lower funding than any other sector— less than 2% of the total. Some estimate that there are more than 1,000,000 public charities around the world focused on issues of sustainability.*
Unfortunately, that’s where we stand: facing an increasing array of challenges without ample resources to address them. 1% for the Planet is helping to tilt the scales of giving toward the thousands of under-funded nonprofits dedicated to the pursuit of sustainability, to preserving and restoring our natural environment. We’re urging members of the business community to contribute one percent of their sales to these groups around the world—to become part of the solution.
