Attending last night’s documentary films last night at Patagonia or at local 1% for the Planet meetings reminds me how hard the many non-profit environmental groups that we support accomplish so much with limited amount of staff and financial resources. They work very hard with sometimes very difficult times fighting to protect our environment. Newf Surf (www.newfsurfboardnet.com) is 1% for the Planet member #2951 with 6 very hard working sponsorships in Maui., Boston and California. 1% of the sale of each Surf/SUP/Race bag sold goes to our sponsorships. “One percent for the planet is a network of companies that give at least one percent of their sales to environmental causes started by Yvon Chouinard (Member # 1, Owner and Founder of Patagonia, Ventura, California) and Craig Mathews (Member #2, owner and founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, West Yellowstone, Montana) and has grown into a global movement that has companies of every shape and size (Terry Kellogg CEO/1% for the Planet).” Some other members: Jack Johnson, Patagonia, Klean Kanteen, New Belgium Brewery along with over 1,000 businesses world wide.
