1% FOR THE PLANET
On January 1st 2021, we committed to donating 1% of all our sales (not profits!) to the environment - forever!
So, whenever you invest in an arkitaip-piece, we will automatically donate 1% of our revenue to environmental non-profits.
We are aware of the fact that currently, almost every business takes more from the planet than it gives back, however, by committing to giving back, we want to keep pushing harder towards climate-positive change.
In short: we want to talk the talk and walk the walk.
What is 1% for the Planet?
It all started back in 2002 when two businessmen met and bonded over their shared love for the outdoors. Realising their responsibility to protect our planet, they decided to give 1% of their sales back to the environment—whether or not they were profitable.
These two businessmen were Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies who together, founded 1% for the Planet
The idea is simple: because companies profit from the resources they take from the earth, they should protect those resources.
Who are we giving back to?
1% for the Planet is dedicated to tackling the most pressing environmental issues of our time. They work with a variety of nonprofit partners within six core issue areas: climate, food, land, pollution, water and wildlife.
At the end of each year, we will then be able to decide to which NGO's we'd like to donate to.
We'd love to hear from you! Please email email@example.com or call +43 6644061049
"The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more poweful source in solving the world's problems."
