1% for the Planet

Elka Swim is incredibly proud to be a member of the 1% for the Planet global network.We have commited to donate 1% of total sales to approved nonprofit partners each year, with 100% of contributions going directly to the partners of our choosing. Here at Elka Swim we chose to join the 1% for the Planet movement as its nonprofit partners focus solely on finding solutions to some of the worst environmental issues facing the planet today.


The 1% for the Planet global network has  donated more than $175  million  to  our environmental  nonprofit partners to  date. Currently, of all global philanthropy that occurs each year, only  3%  goes  to the  environment  and, only  3%  of  that comes from  businesses.


The  planet  needs bigger  support than this,  and our growing network  of fellow member businesses  is doing its valuable part to  increase giving and support on the  ground outcomes. Together with our fellow members, we  lead with purpose and commitment - characteristics that  consumers support.


“We're  excited to  welcome Kappi to  our global network,"  says Kate Williams, CEO  of 1% for the Planet. “Members  of 1% for the Planet contribute  one percent of annual sales directly  to any of the approved nonprofit environmental  organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved  based on referrals, track record and environmental focus.  Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.


About  1% for  the Planet  

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 1,500 member  businesses, a new and expanding  core with hundreds of individual members,  and thousands of nonprofit partners in more  than 60 countries.
