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. 

That’s why we signed up to 1% for the Planet. From the first day that Mondays’ period products went on sale, we’ve committed to donating 1% of every purchase made, back to the environment.

But where exactly does your money go? Well after careful consideration we are very pleased to announce that our 1% for the Planet partner is City to Sea

So 1% for the Planet , what is it about???

1% for the Planet was created in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia and  Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, with the intent of giving back to the environment.

“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!

As a Mondays’ subscriber, you too are a part of this community, supporting the environment and society in these much-needed areas. Let’s stand together to make a difference and positively impact our planet!
