Celebrating Our Partnership with 1% for the Planet!

We are thrilled to announce that The Green Beauty Community Foundation has joined 1% for the Planet as environmental partners! This partnership is a significant step forward in our mission to promote sustainability within the beauty industry and aligns us with a network of businesses committed to making a positive environmental impact.

1% for the Planet serves as an accountability partner for businesses that reject the status quo and actively contribute to environmental causes. Since its inception in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet members have donated hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental partners worldwide.

Currently, 1% for the Planet boasts over 5,000 business members, who have collectively contributed more than $435 million to approved environmental nonprofits. These contributions support a diverse range of environmental initiatives, from combating climate change and protecting biodiversity to promoting sustainable agriculture and clean energy.

Yvon Chouinard, co-founder of 1% for the Planet, captures the essence of this movement perfectly: “The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.”

At The GBC, our programs focus on educating beauty industry professionals and consumers about sustainable practices, fostering collaboration among stakeholders, and advocating for eco-friendly standards. This partnership with 1% for the Planet will amplify our efforts and enable us to make a greater impact.

We also extend our heartfelt thanks to Innersense Organic Beauty for nominating us for inclusion in this impactful network. Their support underscores our shared commitment to creating a healthier planet for future generations. Stay tuned for more updates on our collaborative efforts with 1% for the Planet!

With gratitude,
