Scott Dickerson Photography has just joined the ranks of over 700 other businesses who â€œembrace the notion that the sustainability of the natural environment is fundamental to the sustainability of business” by being members of 1% for the planet.
My fellow members and I have made a commitment to invest 1% of gross sales to preserve our natural environments. This is 1% of sales before expenses, for every $1,000 that I bill a customer this year $10 of that will be donated to an environmental non-profit of my choice. This is great, I can now quit donating randomly throughout the year and I’ll have a great answer for those phone money requests.
1% for the Planet has a simple mission statement: â€œUse market forces to drive positive environmental change by inspiring companies to give.â€
Joining forces with the many respected 1% member companies is exciting and an honor. My customers will now clearly know that I have a real commitment to conservation. Itâ€™s also my hope to encourage other business owners to consider joining me in this resolution of giving back to our environment.
In that spirit I would like to suggest that you take a moment to check out the very nice OnePercentForThePlanet.org website. If you operate a business I hope you will join me, if you operate a non-profit that works to protect and preserve our environment I suggest you look into becoming a member also.
