Giving Back: Why We Support 1% for the Planet

The Organic Whey LLC has been an avid supporter of 1% for the Planet for years, pledging a portion of sales to support non-profit organizations focused on sustainability. What does that mean for you as a customer?

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and CEO of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet includes more than 1,200 members in 48 countries that support more than 3,300 nonprofits. So far, that little 1 percent has generated more than 100 million dollars for these noble causes.

"The Organic Whey LLC is a great addition to the network. By signing on to 1%, it shows they’re really walking the walk in their sustainability efforts,” says Terry Kellogg, 1% CEO. “They're using generosity as a tool with which to build their business and enabling valuable environmental work along the way. We're excited to welcome them to the 1% family."

The Organic Whey shares the beliefs of 1% for the Planet that businesses can do better. We can do more and be more with our products and our purchases. We can create a better world for all who share it without having to sacrifice our health or our happiness. In fact, making better choices for the planet can make us even happier and healthier. What’s not to love about that?

Already, The Organic Whey has supported several organizations including:

We’re consumers too, and we chose these nonprofits because of their commitments to the environment, children’s health and the small family farm—all of which are vital to our future. We want our children and yours to inherit an earth that’s better than it is today, not worse.

This starts by all of us considering each and every purchase. How does this impact our health? How does it impact the earth? These questions are the foundation of change and creating a planet that works for all of us, for many years to come.
