Our Environmental Partners work to advocate, conserve, steward, educate and activate to create a healthy, vibrant future for our planet. We are committed to building support for the essential work being done by our Environmental Partners within our six core issue areas: climate, food, land, pollution, water, and wildlife.

1% for the Planet approved Environmental Partners are carefully vetted environmental organizations that are eligible to receive funding from our members. Our Environmental Partner network is always evolving and our team works hard to bring on new, vetted environmental organizations that meet certain criteria and drive real, measurable environmental outcomes. To date, we have worked with thousands of vetted Environmental Partners in over 60 countries in our network.

"5 Gyres is proud to be a 1% for the Planet environmental partner. Through the 1% for the Planet network, we're connected to businesses that we may have never reached otherwise. The best part is when those businesses become dedicated supporters and advocates for our mission to end the global health crisis of plastic pollution."

—5 Gyres

Our partnership with 1% for the Planet matters. Through it, we get introduced to companies and individuals whom we otherwise might not reach. As a result, we are able to do meaningful work on the ground; businesses become stronger corporate citizens, individuals can act on their passions for the environment, and 1% for the Planet serves as a critical link connecting us all. It’s a win-win-win.

—Ray A. Foote, Executive Vice President of National Forest Foundation
