Our story begins with donating one percent of your purchase to 1% for the Planet; one way for us to give back directly to environmental partners to create a healthier planet.
On October 4, 2022, Grand-Mère joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support environmental organizations focused on the environment.
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Grand-Mère to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved Environmental Partners around the globe. Environmental Partners are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of Environmental Partners worldwide are currently approved.
