At the Bamboo Bottle Company, we strive to be good stewards of this Earth. Sometimes good stewardship is doing the little things right, such as partnering with allies who share our passion for the environment and preservation of the planet. Our allies help us in our effort to make sustainable decisions with our business practices. We can always do better, and with their input we are working on it.
Thank you to our allies for the help on this journey to a more sustainable lifestyle!
1% For the Planet
We are proud to be a part of 1% for the Planet which is a growing global movement of companies that donate 1% of their sales to a network of over 2,300 environmental organizations worldwide. In doing so, we donate 1% of our total sales to a non-profit organization of our choosing who is also a part of the program. Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has inspired members of the business community to contribute 1% of sales to environmental groups around the world. These businesses understand that profit and loss are directly related to the health of the environment. We relish in recognizing the positive effects of connecting business, consumers and nonprofits through philanthropy. Being a part of 1% for the Planet is a small part of our bigger mission to facilitate and improve sustainable practices in all aspects of our business and lives.
