Eathos Foods is excited to announce our membership to 1% for the Planet. We pledge to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“At Eathos, we believe in using business as a force for good. We’re proud to join the 1% for the Planet network to work alongside member companies and partner organizations driving positive change for the planet and our communities.” – Gene Grant, Director of Brand & Strategic Sales at Eathos.
At Eathos, cultivating good in the communities we touch, for the planet we share, & with the products we create is rooted in who we are. We know that investing in people and the planet goes beyond writing a check, so we engage directly with organizations we support to learn how we can propel their causes. Through employee volunteering, food/toy drives, grocery deliveries, and sponsoring fundraising events, we build deep connections to the people around us. Joining 1% for the Planet is a natural step for us to further our commitment with transparency and accountability.
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved environmental nonprofits around the globe. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus and thousands of nonprofits worldwide are already approved.
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Eathos to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
Eathos Foods exists to help Americans eat more mindfully, whether it’s a quick lunch at your desk or a midnight snack. We offer conscious convenience with uncompromising taste. Eathos is a collaboration between a small team of food lovers from California and a third-generation food-producing family from Parma, Italy. We source clean ingredients (that you can actually pronounce), curate authentic regional recipes, and provide an easy plant-based alternative to meat.
