“Macro Plas­tics has a his­tory of cre­at­ing long last­ing, re­us­able prod­ucts to help our cus­tomers re­duce waste. Join­ing 1% for the Planet is an­other step in con­tin­u­ing our com­mit­ment to tak­ing care of our re­sources and hav­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact on our en­vi­ron­ment.” Says Emma Ranz, Sus­tain­abil­ity Engi­neer at Macro Plas­tics.

Mem­bers of 1% for the Planet com­mit to sup­port­ing ap­proved en­vi­ron­men­tal non­profit part­ners by do­nat­ing the equiv­a­lent of 1% of sales through a com­bi­na­tion of mon­e­tary, in-kind, and ap­proved ad­ver­tis­ing con­tri­bu­tions. Non­prof­its are ap­proved based on re­fer­rals, track record and en­vi­ron­men­tal fo­cus. There are thou­sands of ap­proved non­prof­its world­wide.

Macro Plas­tics prod­ucts are 100% re­cy­clable and they are com­mit­ted to re­cov­er­ing the ma­te­ri­als at the end of their life, so they can be re­cy­cled and reused again.

Col­lec­tively, 1% for the Planet Mem­bers have do­nated more than $175 mil­lion to en­vi­ron­men­tal non­prof­its to­date. “We are thrilled to welcome Macro Plas­tics to our global net­work,” said Kate Wil­liams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. “Cur­rently, only 3% of to­tal phi­lan­thropy goes to the en­vi­ron­ment and, only 3% of that comes from busi­nesses. We need more busi­nesses like Macro Plas­tics to do its valu­able part to in­crease giv­ing and sup­port on the ground out­comes.”


1% for the Planet is a global or­ga­ni­za­tion that con­nects dol­lars and do­ers to ac­cel­er­ate smart en­vi­ron­men­tal giv­ing. We rec­og­nize that the cur­rent level of en­vi­ron­men­tal giv­ing – only 3% of to­tal phi­lan­thropy – is not enough to solve the most press­ing is­sues fac­ing our planet.

Through our busi­ness and in­di­vid­ual mem­ber­ship, 1% for the Planet in­spires peo­ple to sup­port en­vi­ron­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions through an­nual mem­ber­ship and every­day ac­tions. We ad­vise on giv­ing strate­gies, we cer­tify dona­tions, and we am­plify the im­pact of the net­work.

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patag­o­nia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Rib­bon Flies, our mem­bers have given more than $175 mil­lion to en­vi­ron­men­tal non­prof­its to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a net­work of more than 1,400 mem­ber busi­nesses, a new and ex­pand­ing core of hun­dreds of in­di­vid­ual mem­bers, and thou­sands of non­profit part­ners in more than 60 coun­tries.
