Innovation That Matters

Springwise and 1% for the Planet

Springwise cares deeply about positive change, especially when it comes to combating our global climate emergency.

Applying this belief internally, we are proud media partners of 1% for the Planet, which connects us to some of the most environmentally concerned organisations in the world.

1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving—only 3% of total philanthropy—is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.

1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations and we amplify the impact of our network.

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $225 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 2,200 business members, a new and expanding core of individual members and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries. Our headquarters are located in Burlington, VT with staff located around the world.
