In the preparation to launch Lochtree, it was essential that we identified additional opportunities to support positive environmental causes. Our goal was to not just stop at providing great eco-friendly products, but to also identify opportunities to give back. In researching the various opportunities available we discovered 1% For The Planet. While there are many tremendous organizations doing fantastic work, we wanted to also provide customers with the confidence that their sales dollars were immediately making an impact.
1% For The Planet is a global network of diverse organizations and individual members that commit to giving 1% of sales revenue back to the planet. Established in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Matthew (founder of Blue Ribbon Flies) with the simple idea that: “because companies profit from the resources they take from the earth, they should protect those resources.” To learn more Click Here. For us at Lochtree this mission aligned with our goals and provided an awesome vehicle to continue to give back to the environment.
Community & A Movement
At Lochtree, we believe that a community based approach to become better stewards of the planet is essential. Rather than a handful of noble crusaders, what is required is a building movement of conscientious consumers - consumers like you who believe that small purchasing changes can add up to make a significant difference. We will look forward to continuing to grow and give back and are excited to partner with 1% For The Planet as we do.
