EarthHero isn’t just a platform for brands that do better – we are one ourselves. Since day 1, we’ve been a member of 1% For The Planet. This means we donate 1% of our sales annually towards sustainability initiatives and organizations that give back to the planet. Let’s dive into how and why we’re proud to be a 1% Member!
1% For the Planet
By now, you’ve probably noticed a trend: we’re focused on giving back to the planet with every single purchase, no matter what. We start with connecting you with conscious companies, then offset the carbon emissions of every shipment. But, what do we do to make our impact reach even further?
As a member of 1% For the Planet, a global network of businesses, nonprofits, and individuals, we invest 1% of our total annual sales with nonprofits dedicated to solving today’s most pressing environmental issues. Since 1% For the Planet’s founding in 2002, its members have donated over $175 million to environmental nonprofits worldwide. By bringing dollars and doers together, 1% For the Planet accelerates smart environmental giving and emphasizes the power of a collective movement. From climate, to food, land, pollution, water, and wildlife issues, 1% focuses on high impact issues affecting the planet today.
We can’t change the world on our own. Together, we can do more. We maximize your impact by promoting companies, that like us, that are 1% for the Planet affiliates. Luckily for us, many of our brands are also members, which makes our impact even greater!
Creating a network of brands that are committed to fostering a healthier earth through action, and not just words, is the philosophy that’s going to have a significant impact on the future. It’s one thing to talk about healing the earth; but taking tangible action, like getting involved with 1% for the Planet, will have the most substantial effects. It’s hard to make a difference by ourselves, but when united, we are stronger in creating a healthier earth.
