Earthlove Commits 1% of all sales to Environmental Causes
CARNATION, Wash. - July 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Earthlove joined 1% for the Planet, committing to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
"Earthlove has a strong commitment to protecting the environment, from the eco-conscious products we curate for our limited edition and subscription boxes to the environmental non-profits we support each season, and 1% for the Planet seemed like a natural fit to continue practicing these values. We all have a responsibility to take care of the earth and together we can work toward real impact for a healthier, more sustainable planet." ―Serina Patterson, Founder of Earthlove
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Earthlove to our global movement of over 1,800 businesses,"
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, over 1,800 1% for the Planet members from 45 different countries have raised over $200 million to support approved environmental nonprofits around the globe. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
