1% for the Planet has a new home on Bridge Street in Waitsfield, Vermont. We recently moved our office down the street into a traditional Vermont farmhouse, originally built in the late 1800’s and recently renovated. With views of the Mad River, the Northfield Range, and the Waitsfield Common, our new office is feeling like home. The 1% crew can often be seen bounding across the street for a quick dip in the river or out for a trail run or bike ride.
To all those considering sending care packages to the lovely 1% crew here in Vermont make sure to get our NEW shipping address. (PS we love baked goods and member products!)

Here at 1%, we are beaming with pride for our members and the financial commitment they have made in creating a healthier planet. However, one day not too long ago, we realized we’d been remiss in proclaiming this good news to our loyal followers. We apologize for this temporary lapse in good manners!
First, a hearty thank you to our over 1,300 current members. Your commitment to supporting the planet inspires more that one new business a day, on average, to pledge one percent of sales back to the environment.
To kick off our new series, Monthly Member Updates, we’re proud to announce all members that joined in August. They are reflective of our 1% network as a whole: diverse, creative and across the board dedicated to supporting the work of environmental non-profits!
