Consider 1% for the Planet as You Plan Your Philanthropic Gifts

As we approach the holiday season when many citizens make charitable donations, please keep in mind an organization Cosimo often works with, 1% for the Planet during your selections this month.

Cosimo joined 1% for the Planet in 2012, an organization of over 1,200 companies in 48 countries that support sustainable causes by donating 1% of their sales to a network of almost 3,700 approved environmental organizations worldwide. To date over $100 million has been donated to this network of environmental organizations.

As Cosimo's mission is to create a smart and sustainable society by publishing books covering wisdom through the ages, it was a natural step to join 1% for the Planet. In recent years, Cosimo has helped support the following organizations:

EcoHealth Alliance
Green Map System
Just Food
Solar One
The Turtle Conservancy
World Monuments Fund
- and more!

About 1% for the Planet
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet is a growing global movement of member companies that donate to environmental organizations worldwide. As a network, the 1% community has become a front runner in funding the work of environmental groups around the world. Readers can find out more, straight from Yvon and Craig, in this video.

1% is Looking Ahead
This summer, 1% will be launching their first consumer-facing campaign to inspire individuals to take measurable actions on behalf of our planet. Watch their Facebook page for the latest news and updates.
