1% for the Planet Member
Liquid Spark is proud to be a business member of 1% For The Planet. We recognize our responsibility to, and dependence on, a healthy environment for outdoor and sustainable living brands, and donate at least 1% of our total annual profit to environmental organizations worldwide in support of their missions.
Our 1% for the Planet Commitment
We became a member of 1% for the Planet in 2014. It was one powerful way we could walk our talk about making a positive contribution to people, place, and planet. We are keen to share how other businesses can also join 1% for the planet and start making a difference right away to help fund important environmental and social non-profit organizations doing meaningful work. Often these initiatives are local or regional, but they can be national and international, too. 1% for the Planet members get to choose which projects and organizations they fund. Our staff loves the end of year process of selecting which non-profits we want to serve with our annual donation.
We empower our clients to identify sustainable shifts they can make in their business, and encourage them to join 1% for the Planet themselves. Being a business member brings you into a powerful, collaborative network of organizations working to change the world. It’s up to each one of us – to be the change we wish to see! We also have a separate USA-based 501C3 non-profit organization, Liquid Spark Foundation. We are happy to serve in whatever way we can. Small steps, collectively, lead to big impacts. Our Liquid Spark Foundation is also funded directly by Liquid Spark, as a % of our net profits. This is totally separate from our 1% for the Planet donations. Those donations do NOT go to our foundation; they go to authorized no-profit members of 1% for the Planet. Find out more about Liquid Spark foundation here.
About 1% For The Planet
1% For The Planet was launched by Yvon Chouinard, environmental activist and founder of outdoor clothing company Patagonia, Inc., and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies in 2001. The idea was simple: because companies profit from the resources they take from the earth, they should protect those resources. It has grown into a global movement.
