Giving Back to Nature: Why we Joined 1% For the Planet

Giving Back to Nature: Why we Joined 1% For the Planet

Building any business involves an environmental cost, whether it's the energy you use to power your laptop or the fuel powering your deliveries.

At Fieldtrip we do what we can to minimise this impact - from designing plastic-free products and packaging to sourcing materials from ethical suppliers.

However we're aware this isn't enough to deal with the environmental crisis our planet is facing, and that's why we've signed up to 1% For The Planet.

Set up in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (the founder of Patagonia) and Craig Matthews (founder of Blue Ribbon Flies), 1% for the Planet is a global network of organisations who agree to give at least 1% of their total sales to environmental causes.

To be clear that is 1% of sales, not 1% of profits - so for every £1 of product sold, 1p will go to support the environment, and 1FTP certify all business and donations to ensure it's members are holding up their side of the deal.

"1% for the Planet was founded on the idea that a company has a responsibility to give back for use of our planet’s resources. It started with that core idea and more than 20 years later, we’re still helping businesses make good on their commitments."

So far more than $600m in donations have been raised through 1FTP, and this number is growing exponentially every year as more business sign up to support this incredible idea.
