New member Eleven59 Studio, based out of Austin, Texas, is a design firm specializing in sustainable architecture, branding, and graphics. In 2011, Co-Owners Alden Hall and Scott Larrick left their former lives in high-rise, corporate jobs to create a company motivated by positive change rather than profit. For them, sustainability is more than a buzzword; it’s a way of doing business that benefits people, the environment, and the bottom line equally. They discovered 1% for the Planet while drinking at their favorite local brewery, Hops & Grain, who happens to be a member. Alden and Scott love Austin. They bike to work (and just about everywhere else), support local waste prevention and recycling programs, and regularly swim in the city’s natural spring-fed pool. That’s why they hope to focus their donations to local non-profits like Bike Texas, Ecology Action, and the Save Our Springs Alliance, so that their 1% can have a direct impact on the causes they care about most in their community.
