We are proud to confirm that we have officially become a member of 1% for the Planet; an organisation that brings ‘dollars and doers together to address the most pressing issues facing our planet’.
The problems on our planet can often seem overwhelming and out of our control, but the power of one has never been so important. Through businesses donating just 1% of their annual turnover, an impressive $150 million has been given back to environmental nonprofits since 2002. The network consists of more than 1,200 member businesses, numerous individuals, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries. In being a member, Earth.Food.Love will be donating 1% of our turnover (not profit) to a nonprofit of our choice (tbc). Being the first business in Totnes to do this, we hope to inspire lots of other local businesses to jump on board too and get involved…imagine the collective impact we could have?!?!
Every time you spend at our shop, you now know that 1% is going directly towards helping the Earth, so thank-you! Head over to their website to read about them further and lets just spread the word! Lets talk about it to everyone! Lets see who else joins…
