PARK CITY, Utah (PRWEB) March 11, 2021
Pale Blue Earth partnered with Protect Our Winters (POW) as part of their efforts with 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“We operate on the knowledge that this planet doesn’t belong to us, it’s on loan from our children and our children’s children,” says Tom Bishop, CEO of Pale Blue Earth. “Joining 1% for the Planet was a no-brainer, and being based in Park City, with the majority of our team being involved in winter sports made Protect Our Winters a natural partner for us.”
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment, and only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Pale Blue Earth to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $265 million to support approved environmental nonprofits around the globe. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
