Support businesses that give back
Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has been inspiring the business community to make giving back a priority. Started by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and his friend Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet encourages businesses to donate 1% of their annual sales to organizations working for a healthier planet. More than 1,200 companies in 48 countries have now joined the movement, benefiting more than 3,300 organizations worldwide — including Ecotrust.
Ecotrust is honored to receive support from the following companies who give generously through their commitment to 1% for the Planet.
Nau, Partners for Change
Nau — a sustainable clothing company (and local Portland neighbor) — has designated Ecotrust as one of its Partners for Change. Nau donates 2% of every purchase to a select group of nonprofit organizations, allowing its customers to choose where to give. Here at Ecotrust, we are big fans of innovative business models. We also love beautiful, responsibly made clothing. Shop at Nau, donate to Ecotrust, and know that you have made a difference. Win-win!
