WELCOMING PATAGONIA AS OUR FIRST 1% PARTNER!
We’re beyond excited to announce a 1% for the Planet partnership with Patagonia. As part of their Enviro Grants programme they’ll be supporting our campaigns throughout 2017.
Besides being an internationally respected brand, in terms of environmental and social responsibility, Patagonia are pioneers. (They’re also leading the way in terms of solutions to plastic pollution from microfibres – read about that here).
It’s a great honour to have them as our first 1% for the Planet partner, especially seeing as the movement was co-created by Patagonia’s visionary founder, Yvon Chouinard. We’re very happy to have them on board.
