1% for the planet was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chounard (founder of outdoor brand Patagonia)
Since Upsales joined 1% for the planet in 2016 we have donated more than 1 MSEK (€100 000) to the organisations Solvaten and One tree planted.
Solvatten is a Swedish social enterprise that brings Solvatten Solar Safe Water System to customers, charities and distributors around the world. We also partner with organisations and micro-finance institutions to increase reach and affordability. Visit Solvatten for more information.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit founded in Shelburne, Vermont USA. They work with reforestation organisations around the world that need financial support to help them get more trees in the ground.
The organisation started in 2014 with a mission to make it simple for people to help the environment. Visit One tree planted for more information.
