A warm welcome to the 49 businesses that joined 1% for the Planet in January—what a way to start 2012!
We’ve been growing at a rate of more than one business per day for the past two years, but January was a particularly wonderful month here at 1% for the Planet. 49 businesses started their membership during the past four weeks. For those of you nervously watching the 260-day Mayan Tzolkin calendar this year, that works out to an impressive 2.2 members per day this month.
We’re tweaking the way we introduce new members in light of all the activity in the network and the addition of our talented new staff members James, Pauline and Tom. Look for an initial post announcing the folks who have joined most recently, followed by entries going deeper into the stories of the people, places and motivations that inspired them to join 1% for the Planet.
A taste of things to come: Forest Sun and Ingrid Serban-Schumacher are giving back through their business Painted Sun Records and making the world a better place through their (awesome) music and 1% contributions!
