Proud Partners With 1% For The Planet!

Our Heart & Co. is proud and excited to be a member of 1% For The Planet, a global community of businesses committed to environmental responsibility. When you make any purchase from Our Heart & Co., you can be proud knowing that a share of the sale goes directly to a non-profit that supports our ecosystem.

All members of 1% For The Planet have made a vow to donate their time, dollars, and influence to the important cause of fighting for our beautiful planet - the only planet we can call our own.

Only 3% of philanthropy goes towards environmental causes, according to Giving USA. Our Heart & Co., along with the over 3000 individual businesses and non-profit groups have been brought together by 1% For The Planet to give back more. Over the years, 1% For The Planet has raised over $250 million to support the cause, and there is no sign of stopping any time soon.

1% For The Planet is a means to bring for-profit and verified non-profit businesses together, certifying that at least 1% of all revenue goes to relevant environmental causes. 1% For The Planet also allows and encourages volunteering towards the same causes as well. As of 2017, businesses and individuals alike are welcome to join 1% For The Planet as members. As an individual, you can commit to either giving 1% of your annual salary or fulfilling some or all of your commitment with volunteer hours.

1% For The Planet was founded by outdoorsmen and business-owners Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Mathews (founder of Blue Ribbon Flies) in 2002, bound by a love for the great outdoors. According to Chouinard in his book Let My People Go Surfing, 1% For The Planet was founded to “help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.” This vision has been realized and continues to grow and impact our planet in incredible ways.

Many people care about our world, and we should; it’s the only one we have and it is incredible in it’s beauty and diversity. Too often, we want to make a difference in the world and don’t know how. 1% For The Planet is the easy answer to that question, and we couldn’t be more proud to have answered the call. We sincerely hope that you will consider visiting the 1% For The Planet page and exploring options that benefit you and the rest of the world.
