About 1%

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% exists to raise the bar for corporate philanthropy and to encourage more giving to nonprofits focused on issues of sustainability. 1% exists to certify that each business fulfills their 1% commitment and to see that those donations are going back to the planet via 1% nonprofit partners.
