If you live in Oregon it’s sometimes easy to take for granted the natural beauty we enjoy here on a daily basis.
There’s nothing more beautiful than Mt. Bachelor, the Deschutes River and all of the natural attractions across the state which have drawn people to Oregon for generations.
This is why we’ve made the commitment to pledge 1% of our 2015 revenue for maintaining a healthy planet.
Our goal is to do our part to keep Oregon beautiful for generations to come and an awesome place for people to live.
About 1% for the Planet
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard and Craig Mathews, both well-known businessmen and environmentalists, 1% for the planet has been working hard for the last 10 years to preserve, protect and keep this plant healthy for generations to come.
So far over $100 million dollars have been donated by companies around the world who like the Skjersaa Group have donated 1% of their annual revenue to this cause.
As of 2015 1% for the Planet now has over 1,200 members world-wide who have joined the cause to protect the earth.
Leading By Example
Yvon Chouinard has been a leader in environmental causes since 1985 when he first started pledging 1% of his company’s annual revenue toward helping the environment.
Since then Patagonia has awarded over $50 million dollars in cash and donations to companies around the world who protect the environment.
Chouinard’s leadership was instrumental in causing Craig Matthews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies to seek him out and together they created 1% for the Planet, an awesome alliance of businesses around the world who understand that businesses have to be accountable for the condition the earth is left in for the next generation.
More businesses like the Skjersaa Group realize that business isn’t always about profit and loss.
We can make a difference in the world by contributing 1% for the Planet and invite you to join this worthy cause to do the same.
