The Power of 1%

The Power of 1%

Our Partnership with 1% for the planet

We strive to leave a lighter footprint on the earth in what we do, and know that Banabae customers appreciate our care for the environment in our organic fibres, sustainability approach and partnership with 1% for the planet.

Businesses that join 1% for the Planet commit to giving 1% of gross sales each year to approved nonprofit partners through a variety of support

With each and every Banabae product we are mindful of how it is made, who makes it, and its long term environmental impact. Every business starts with a why – and ours was to have a positive impact not just with our products but also with our profits!

We are honoured to join 5,840 other members of 1% for the planet to contribute to the near $300 million in certified gifting. Every business has a 1% to give, and in turn, to protect.

1% for the Planet was founded on the idea that all businesses have 1% to give, and if that could be accumulated together, a huge impact could be made. Since businesses profit and run from earth's resources, it only makes sense to give back and protect our environment.

“This is not philanthropy. This should be a cost of doing business. It’s paying rent for our use of the planet.”

 - YVON CHOUINARD, Founder of Patagonia and 1% for the Planet

Their focus on the environment is in light of the fact that only 3% of philanthropic giving goes to environmental causes. To date, 1% for the Planet has gifted $295,286,062 in over 90 countries. This ever-growing network of partnering brands shows how much of an impact small commitments can make if we work together.
