In addition to being crafted to standards that respect the environment and the workers, from now through the holiday Coyuchi will also support nonprofit groups focused on environmental issues through 1% for the Planet. Founded in 2002, by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Matthews (former owner of Blue Ribbon Flies), 1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses, organizations, and individuals working together to create positive change. Members of 1% for the Planet contribute directly to any of the nonprofit environmental organizations in the network, which are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus.
So far, the network has raised more than $150 million to support nonprofits working hard to protect the planet. We've pledged a portion of the annual sales of all our apparel items to this amazing organization. Look for the 1% for the Planet logo to choose Coyuchi products that support the cause.
We encourage bussinesses to join the movement. Through the contribution of 1% of annual sales to environmental non-profits, we can collectively create change. Learn more at onepercentfortheplanet.org.
Our 1% For The Planet contribution goes directly towards our partnership with Fibershed - a network that helps combat climate change through carbon-neutral farming. Fibershed develops regional and regenerative fiber systems on behalf of independent working ranchers, by helping to implement carbon farming methods on their land. Fibershed thus supports The Jensen Ranch and Stemple Creek Ranch where we get our carbon-beneficial wool that goes into a number of our items like our Climate Beneficial Wool Dryer Balls, Climate Beneficial Wool Mattress Topper and, our Climate Beneficial Wool Duvet Insert.
