1% for the Planet

It's always good to spend time making plans with people going on the same journey as you. I had the pleasure of doing so a couple of days back with Terry Kellogg and Kate Mitchell from 1% for the Planet, 'a growing alliance of 1036 businesses who donate 1% of their sales to environmental charities.

TYF has been members of 1% for the last three years, and it's been the best business decision I've ever made. We've used the funding to enable a climate change website for schools, and more recently, to fund the workshops at Hay on Earth, which have had a profound impact.

We're talking to the folks at the main Hay Festival about running a 1% for the Planet workshop for new and prospective members to get together and plan big, good change.

Giving away 1% of revenue is a serious commitment, but then, if you run a serious business, why not prove it?
