We created Light Soy to highlight the big problem with single-use plastic, and raise awareness of the impact that small design decisions can have on people and the planet. We knew right from the start that we would use revenue from Light Soy to support & fund solutions to plastic pollution, but we weren’t always sure how we were going to do that in a way that had a real, measurable impact.
So, we’re very pleased to announce that we have joined 1% for the Planet, a global network of businesses and individuals that give one percent of their revenue to environmental nonprofits each year. 1% for the Planet brings businesses together with approved nonprofits that align with their values, to create high-impact partnerships and make meaningful change. 1% for the Planet vet each nonprofit that joins their network, and each year they certify that business members have donated 1% of their revenue to nonprofits within the network.
To date, 1% for the Planet members have given more than $225 million to environmental causes.
By joining 1% for the Planet’s network, we can rely their expertise to direct funds towards impactful nonprofits focused on protecting the oceans and preventing plastic pollution and hopefully make a real difference.
We look forward to working with them and our nonprofit partners, and keeping our customers updated on the impact that their purchases have made.
