SunGod Joins 1% For The Planet.

26 August 2021

We’re now giving 1% of our annual revenue to the Planet.

Making Life Look Better is in SunGod’s DNA. Every day, we are working to challenge what has come before as we continue to build a brand that both we and our community can stand behind. As we continue this journey, we’re excited to announce that from today we are now part of 1% for the Planet.

This means that from now on, we have committed to give at least 1% of our annual revenue to sustainability-focused nonprofits. We’re proud to say that supporting charitable partners isn’t new to SunGod, having raised over £30,000 for charities in the last three years. However, our partnership with 1% for the Planet ensures accountability and fosters trust in our collaborations with like-minded brands, businesses and charities as we continue to grow.

WHAT IS 1% FOR THE PLANET?

1% for the Planet is a global family of businesses, individuals and nonprofit organisations, who are financially committed to creating a happy and healthy planet for all.

WHAT’S THE MISSION?

1% for the Planet was founded to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability for businesses. The 1% for the Planet certification is given to businesses and individuals who meet their high-bar commitment: to donate at least 1% of annual sales or salary to environmental causes. You can always give more, but you should never give less than 1%.

“This is not philanthropy. This should be a cost of doing business. It’s paying rent for our use of the planet.” Yvon Chouinard, Founder of Patagonia and 1% for the Planet.
