At Mondays, we’re committed to the future of our planet. Right from the beginning, we were determined to build a company that did the right thing and made a positive difference to the environment.
So 1% for the Planet , what is it about???
“We are the ones that caused all of these problems, so therefore we are the ones that have to solve them” Yvon Chouinard, Co-founder, 1% for the Planet.
1% for the Planet connects businesses (dollars) with nonprofit organisations (doers) to “accelerate smart environmental giving”.
Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet, explains why these partnerships are profoundly meaningful:
“Nonprofits are able to go where businesses can’t go because sometimes there’s not a market. They’re able to be more bold and activist, because they’re driven by their mission”
Becoming a member was easy; the hard part was finding the right partner.
Then we found City to Sea!
A nonprofit founded in 2015 by award-winning environmental campaigner, author, and speaker Natalie Fee. An environmental organisation campaigning to stop plastic pollution – from the city to the sea. Their vision is for the world’s waterways and coastlines to be strewn with sticks, sand and seaweed … not plastic!
They work with communities, corporates and retailers to inspire and empower everyone to tackle plastic pollution.
In 2017 they initiated the Plastic Free Periods campaign, which couldn’t be more in line with our values. Everything you need to know about the campaign and how to get involved can be read here: https://www.citytosea.org.uk/plasticfreeperiods-2/
We are very excited to announce this partnership and are very much looking forward to everything that is to come with City to Sea!
