At Ceres Life, we are proud to be members of the 1% for the Planet community.
1% for the Planet is an international organization, founded by Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard and his friend Craig Matthews, to connect their members with high impact non profit partners who align with their values to create a global movement in environmental protection. Their mission is to ‘accelerate smart environmental giving’, and believe in putting people and planet over profit.
Business members, like us, commit to donating 1% of sales with these non-profit partners to invest in environmental projects that protect land, forests, rivers, oceans and also encourage sustainable methods of energy production. Today, 1% for the Planet has more than 5,000 members coming together to protect the future of our planet.
“The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.”
Yvon Chouinard in his book “Let My People Go Surfing”
