1% For the Planet
A little more than ten years ago, a mountain climber and a fisherman realized they had a lot more in common than a disdain for wearing a suit to work. Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, are passionate environmentalists that happened to be running successful businesses.
Founded in 2002, 1% for the Planet has grown into a global movement of more than 1200 member companies in 48 countries, all donating at least 1% of annual sales to sustainability initiatives. In just over 10 years 1% for the Planet companies have given more than $100 million back to Blue.
We are eager to grow so we can maximize our contribution and help give $1 Billion back to Blue!
B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good™. Their vision is that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the Best for the World®, so society will enjoy a shared and durable prosperity.
We are proud to have passed their rigorous exam that allows us to call ourselves a B corp, and look forward to working with them to realize their vision.
