Proud Members of 1% for the Planet
We support collective action to protect people and the environment.
Donating 1% of Revenues
As members of 1% for the Planet, Hass donates 1% of our revenues to vetted nonprofits in an effort to address the interrelated issues of climate change, healthy food systems, land management, water resources, pollution, and wildlife diversity. As part of this commitment, we’ve partnered with nonprofits City Harvest, in New York, and Food Forward, in Los Angeles, to help fight food insecurity. Both organizations rescue food that would otherwise be thrown away and put it in the hands of families in need. As part of our respective partnerships, Hass donates one meal for every purchase made on our website.
It’s Time To Step Up
The evidence is overwhelming: climate change is an imminent threat, our food systems are increasingly stressed, and our lands, waters, and biodiversity are threatened like never before. Unfortunately, the global community is falling far short of meeting this challenge. Currently, only three percent of philanthropic giving in the U.S. goes to environmental causes and only three percent of this giving comes from the business community. On top of that, government funding for the environment is variable even in the best of times. The global community has a responsibility and opportunity to step up for the planet and drive positive change.
Putting People And Planet Over Profit
1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual membership and everyday actions — advising on giving strategies, certifying donations, and amplifying the impact of member organizations.
The organization collaborates with individual and business members to identify environmental organizations that will make the greatest impact and align with our giving goals. They certify that every dollar contributed goes to a vetted, trusted nonprofit. Members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental causes, and our nonprofit partners are doing the hard work of restoring our planet to create a better future for all. Their goal is to significantly increase the overall amount of global dollars going to help protect the planet with the smartest donations possible.
The foundation of the 1% for the Planet network is the member-nonprofit partnership. Business and individual members engage directly with approved nonprofit partners, providing financial donations, volunteer time, in-kind donations, and other shared-value collaborations. These thriving partnerships help deliver longer-term support and greater impact. To date, 1% for the Planet’s members have collectively directed almost $300 million to environmental and social justice nonprofits.
