Dirt Craft Joins 1% For The Planet
As of October, 2013 Dirt Craft is proud to be a member of 1% for the Planet. This is a network of progressive businesses committing at least 1% of all sales to environmental organizations of their choosing. Though our business is firmly committed to leaving this world a better place than we found it, empowering people to create heathy, beautiful, ecological, and affordable shelter (thereby creating the circumstances so that they too can put their energy into meaningful work!) we understand that this cannot be done alone.
As much as we’ve tried to create a business that is part of the soultion, we remain endlessly grateful to the tens of thousands of people working on the front lines of environmental issues, holding governments, corporations, and individuals to account, while creating the space for meaningful dialogue on tough but vitally important subjects. As author Paul Hawken puts it, “the shared activity of hundreds of thousands of nonprofit organizations can be seen as humanity’s immune response to toxins like political corruption, economic disease, and ecological degradation.”
Over the next few months we’ll highlight the organizations that we will be supporting through the Fund, with the hope that you’ll be inspired by the work and perhaps contribute to it yourself. And on that note, we encourage you to look at 1% for the Planet for yourself. If you have a business, big or small, consider joining. If you work for a company, perhaps you could bring it to the attention of the executive. And be sure to look for businesses that support 1% for the Planet, including a growing number of Canadian companies.
