skinflint joins 1% for the Planet

3 years ago Posted by: skinflint Sustainability

skinflint is pleased to have partnered with 1% for the Planet, meaning each year 1% of our sales will be donated to a range of carefully considered nonprofits working on the issues most important to us. That is: to halt climate change and create a sustainable future for our people and planet.

Over the years we’ve proudly supported a range of charities including Help Refugees, Cornwall-based ShelterBox, and many other local community schemes. This year our commitment to 1% for the Planet, alongside our B Corp certification and our signing of the Better Business Act, builds on our intention to use business as a force for good.

1% for the Planet is all about accelerating smart environmental giving to create positive impact and change, and the 1% network is global and diverse, proving that anyone can make a difference, from individual members to large corporations. We hope others will join us in doing the same.

For our 2020-2021 financial year, the skinflint team voted to donate to 1%’s approved nonprofits working to effect change in our local area here in Cornwall, as well as on a national level in the UK: Surfers Against Sewage, Cool Earth, Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust, and The B4 Project.
