Put simply: we bring people together to increase smart environmental giving.

While there are many ways to give back, 1% for the Planet also provides opportunities through the business membership program, which garners additional value and opportunity to those committed to supporting our planet.

Business membership

1% for the Planet was founded on the model of our business membership program: responsible businesses giving back to Environmental Partners to create a healthier planet.

Here’s how it works:

  • Join: Business members join our network, committing to donate the equivalent of 1% of gross sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind and approved promotional support directly to Environmental Partners.

  • Advise: 1% for the Planet provides partnership advising, pairing members with Environmental Partners that align with their values, their brand and that make the biggest impact possible.

  • Donate: Business members support their Environmental Partner(s) directly—no intermediary necessary! In fact, we will help you forge meaningful relationships with your partners.

  • Certify: 1% for the Planet certifies all member donations—legitimizing members’ commitment by reviewing and confirming sales and donation details annually.

It’s that easy—and also incredibly effective. To date, our members have given over $435 million in environmental solutions through the 1% for the Planet network.

Easy, effective and…accessible! We believe that everyone has a 1%. We offer flexible giving options to ensure feasibility for members.
