EnjoyWater is very proud in becoming a member of the 1% for the Planet global network. We have pledged to donate 1% of our annual sales to support non-profit organisations focused on the environment. It is important for our customers to know that by choosing our spring water they are themselves contributing to these organisations. It’s another way their small choice is making a BIG IMPACT.
"Our member companies have donated more than $175 million to our environmental non-profit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We're excited to welcome EnjoyWater to our global network," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global organisation that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognise that the current level of environmental giving, only 3% of total philanthropy, is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
Through our business and individual membership, 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organisations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of the network.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $200 million to environmental non-profits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,500 member businesses, a new and expanding core with hundreds of individual members, and thousands of non-profit partners in more than 60 countries.
