We are pleased to announce that we have been accepted for membership by 1% for the Planet. 1% for the Planet’s mission is to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet. As a non-profit member, we invite you to support TGW by designating us as your non-profit of choice. 

Here are some FAQ’s to help you understand how you can join as a business or individual:

Q: 1% OF PROFIT, NET REVENUE, OR SALES? 
Members donate at least 1% of sales to nonprofit partners we’ve vetted for participation in the 1% for the Planet network.

Q: CAN I BE A MEMBER AS AN INDIVIDUAL? 

Q: HOW DO I JOIN AS A BUSINESS? 

Q: WHAT KIND OF CHANGE IS 1% FOR THE PLANET MAKING IN THE WORLD?
1% for the Planet members support thousands of nonprofit organizations helping to save land, protect forests, rivers and oceans, make agricultural and energy production more sustainable, getting toxics out of the environment, plastics out of the oceans and more. You name it, a 1% for the Planet nonprofit partner is doing it with the help of support from our member companies.

Q: WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO? 
Member businesses give 1% of their sales directly to the sustainability-oriented nonprofit(s) of their choosing. 1% for the Planet carefully vets each nonprofit for track record, credibility and impact and annually verifies that members are making their contributions.
