ECM Announces Partnership with 1% for the Planet
Ecocentric Mom, a New York based subscription box discovery service for moms, joined 1% for the Planet (1%), pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“Our member companies have donated more than $130 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We’re excited to welcome Ecocentric Mom to our global network.” says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
“We deeply believe in the power of business to act as a positive agent for change in our world. Ecocentric Mom was founded in 2012 with a mission to promote health, wellness and environmental preservation; we view our membership in 1% For the Planet as a natural extension of that mission. We are thrilled to being joining this growing community of like-minded businesses and nonprofits.” says Casey Powers, CEO of Ecocentric Mom.
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Over 4000 nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
