We’ve recently joined One Percent for the Planet, a group of businesses that donate 1% of their slaes to environmental organizations worldwide. In the past, we’ve given to local and national organizations here and there. Most of these donations were spurred by one-time occurances, such as Katrina. One Percent for the Planet is somthing altogether new and different for Needmore – it is a way for us to not only raise awareness, but also to make a commitment to ourselves and the environment that is directly tied to the work that we do.
The list of supported environmental groups is astounding and constantly growing; everything from Global warming to Portland organizations such as Ecotrust and the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation are represented. What environmental group or cause is close to your heart?
