Did you know, only 3% of total philanthropy is currently given to environmental causes?
We would not exist without our incredible space ship Earth, yet it feels although we've forgotten our place. That we belong to her, rather than her to us. That's why we see giving back to our planet as giving to our future, the future of our children and of all life on Earth.
WE ARE PROUDLY 1% FOR THE PLANET MEMBERS
1% is a global organisation that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. Even from our very humble beginnings, hand-making all our natural sunscreen and surf zincs, we were signed up to be 1% For The Planet Members, because giving back to the planet is at the heart of what we do.
Now that we're growing we're announcing our commitment of 10% of profits or 1% of our sales, whichever is greatest. We trialled special codes so you could select where you'd like the money from your purchase to go, but the idea didn't gain the momentum we expected and we felt that not enough was going towards our amazing NGO partners. So we rethought the process and have committed to sharing 10% of our profits, which brings us so much joy and we hope makes you stoked too!
We'll be creating a page for our NGO partners soon. Stay tuned for the link, but for now here's a little bit about them:
Madison Stewart’s AMAZING conservation project saving sharks and providing alternative income to shark fishermen in Indonesia.
It is estimated 100 million sharks are being killed every year, thats 10,000 an hour. Overfishing has wiped out over 90% of all shark populations, but Madison Stewart is doing something to change it.
Island Conservation are doing INCREDIBLE work removing invasive species from islands helping to restore them and save endangered species.
A recent study has reported that if we could eradicate invasive species from just 100 small islands we would save 10% of worlds biodiversity.
Save The Daintree
The Rainforest Foundation are saving the MAGNIFICENT Daintree Rainforest in Australia by buying land that is released for sale and placing conservation covenants on the lots.
The Rainforest Foundation are also running important campaigns to raise awareness of endangered species that call the Daintree Rainforest home e.g. Cassowary and Tree Kangaroos.
