We are aware of the impact Black Friday has on the environment – such as the clothes that will be bought impulsively and tossed aside, or the household gadgets that you think you need, and so many other products that will be wasted. This year, we want to do things a little differently.
Our HelloBody Cares charity program will donate 1% of our total revenue (from November 25th to December 2nd, 2019) to 1% for the Planet, an NGO that works globally to bring together donors and nonprofits to help protect the planet.
Why did we chose 1% For The Planet?
At HelloBody, we use the best that nature has to offer in the development of our products, and we understand the importance of taking care of our resources. Climate change can no longer be ignored. This is why we refuse to use ingredients that are damaging to the health of our environment, such as mineral oils, waxes and microplastics.
Because preserving the planet is more important than ever right now, we wanted to use the occasion of Black Friday to give back to our planet a little bit of what it offers us. And who better to partner with than the international movement, “1% for the Planet”.
Founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard and Craig Matthews, the organization 1% For the Planet, builds awareness and funds environmental issues that impact all of us. They also raise awareness that only 3% of philanthropy goes towards the support of environmental causes. Through their work, 1% for the Planet works closely with members that commit to donating to trusted environmental organisations, so that, collectively, they can be a more powerful lever for solving the planet’s most urgent issues. Donations from the 1% for the Planet network got to a wide variety of projects that focus on issues like protecting biodiversity, climate change, ocean pollution and many more.
To date, 1% for the Planet has certified more than $225 million in giving to approved environmental nonprofits and here at HelloBody, we are very honoured to contribute to this movement.
Together, let’s make small daily actions to preserve our planet for future generations. Are you ready?
