We've signed up to 1% for the planet
It's really important for us as a business that uses organic material to give something back to the environment that we live in and the material came from.
We were previously certified carbon neutral, but a big chunk of the fees for this went to a third party as 'assessment fees', rather than being given to a charity for offsetting.
After searching around we came across 1% for the planet and have decided to sign up to it. It's a scheme whereby we donate 1% of our gross sales (so not taking our costs into account) to an environmental charity of our choice. Our financial accounts will be reviewed annually by a third party to ensure the correct amount is donated.
We're really excited to be able to donate directly to an environmental cause and in time will be updating customers to let everyone know where we have decided to invest the funds.
