1% for the Planet is a partnership of companies that understand just how important it is that we protect the world we live in. Its members are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry, and know they have a part to play themselves. Together, they pledge their commitment to greater corporate responsibility from businesses, uniting donors and doers to help accelerate smart environmental giving.
The 1% for the Planet initiative operates as a non-profit organisation. It encourages businesses to help safeguard the environment by donating 1% of their turnover to grassroots environmental groups making a difference in their local communities. As a member ourselves, at Westford Mill we recognise our own responsibility to the planet and take it very seriously indeed. That’s why 1% of our annual sales is donated to projects that share and reflect our passion. It’s not just about money though, so we also make sure our staff are given the time and opportunity to actively volunteer in community projects local to them.
Below, you’ll see the exciting sustainability projects that Westford Mill’s donations are supporting.
