Lux Skin Oils joins 1% for the Planet. Posted on 15 Mar 09:00
Today, I am happy and proud to announce that Lux Skin Oils has officially joined the 1% for the Planet program.
One Percent for the Planet was founded by Yvon Chouinard and Craig Mathews in 2002 to “encourage more businesses to donate 1% of sales to environmental groups”. Yvon Chouinard is the founder of the Patagonia clothing company and Craig Mathews is the founder of Blue Ribbon Files. The organization now claims over 1,200 members in 48 countries.
We're proud to join other progressive companies that see their mission beyond just their balance sheets. Companies like New Belgium Brewing, Patagonia, and many others.
Giving 1% of our profits for the planet was not something that we took lightly as we grow. But this is something that we decided to do to leave a better place for our children.
One Percent for the Planet does not offer individual membership, but offers membership to companies. The corporate membership allow companies to contribute 1% of their gross annual sales to non profit organizations that “focus on environmental causes”
