What It Means To Be A 1% For The Planet Member

Many of our customers often ask what it means to be a 1% for the planet member. They see the emblem on our packaging are curious to know why it is there.

1% for the Planet is an environmental non-profit that uses 1% of participating companies sales to help fund environmental causes around the world. It is about businesses recognizing that industry and ecology are inherently connected. It’s about realizing the positive effects of connecting businesses, consumers and nonprofits through philanthropy. And it’s about understanding that the true cost of doing business can be mitigated by a simple pledge to the planet.

Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has inspired members of the business community to contribute millions of dollars to environmental groups around the world. In 2009, over 50 million was raised! Check out the video below to help understand the impact 1% for the Planet has.

I recommend checking out the inspiring 1% non-profit partner video-replies below the video. These are some of the stories highlighting the great non-profit groups that 1% members choose to directly support.

We at Use Me are proud that 1% of our sales go towards helping to restore and protect the earth. A beautiful, healthy world is just as important as beautiful, healthy hair.
