Icicle Brewing Company in Leavenworth Washington has recently joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of distribution sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“We are so excited to be the first brewery member of 1% for the Planet in Washington State! We feel that it is important to work together for a healthy planet and to support environmental solutions through our membership and everyday activities.” Pamela Brulotte, Owner.
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.
Collectively, 1% for the Planet Members have donated more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to-date.
“We are thrilled to welcome Icicle Brewing Company 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 Icicle Brewing to do its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes.”
