1% for the Planet

1% for the PlanetAs of today, the Process Type Foundry has pledged to donate 1% of its annual revenue to nonprofit environmental organizations. When you make a purchase on our website, 1% of every dollar spent goes towards creating a sustainable future.

From pledge to reality
We’ve become members of 1% for the Planet, an organization whose mission is to build an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthier planet. Their role is critical because they monitor each end of the giving process: its members and the receiving nonprofits. 1% for the Planet audits members to ensure they’re living up to their financial commitment but also provides them with approved nonprofits who are chosen based on referrals, track record and environmental focus.

About 1% for the Planet
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and CEO of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet is a growing global movement of over 1,200 member companies in 38 countries that donate 1% of their sales to environmental organizations worldwide. Each day, more than one new business joins the 1% for the Planet movement. As a network, the 1% community has become a global frontrunner in funding the work of environmental groups around the world.
