1% for the Planet®

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. Through the Westford Mill® and BagBase® brands we are members as we recognise our own responsibility to the planet and take it very seriously. That’s why 1% of our Westford Mill® and BagBase® annual sales are donated to projects that share and reflect our passion. It’s not just about money though, we also make sure our staff are given the time and opportunity to actively volunteer in environmental and community projects local to them.

Carbon Literacy Project

As part of our 1% for the Planet® membership we are long-term supporters of the Carbon Literacy Project and an accredited Carbon Literate Organisation. The Carbon Literacy Project’s aim is to advance the education in conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment. Carbon Literacy means: “An awareness of the carbon dioxide costs and impacts of everyday activities, and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis."
