1 % for the Planet is a global movement of businesses supporting environmental causes. From now on, we are giving 1% of our gross sales (not revenue) to this organization. Since 2016, when Ganxxet was born, we wanted to join this organization and finally this year it was financially possible and it is one of our proudest achievements.
As a business, one way or the other, we consume natural resources to develop our activity, so to give back a percentage of our sales to organizations that help restore these resources is a necessity to us. During 2021, we will be donating monthly to organizations that help protect our oceans from the plastic contamination and to reduce the climate change protecting our rainforests. Here at Ganxxet we are committed to do our part to help. We will soon disclose all the information about our donations in our Ethics section.
Trees play an essential role in cleaning the air we breathe, filter the water and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks that offset carbon and aids in the reduction of the effects of climate change. That’s why we have joined One Tree Planted, to help in their mission to plant one tree for each $1 donated. During checkout, our clients now have the opportunity to donate any amount they want. We will match it and donate the total amount, guaranteeing a minimum of 500 trees planted per month. This means that at least 6,000 trees will be planted per year, but we hope to get much further from this number. Thank you for helping us make it possible!
