Innersense Organic Beauty Sustainability Pledge

Our pledge to Mother Earth: To be 1% better

We appreciate our amazing nonprofit partners who work passionately to preserve the environment. It’s our goal to live in harmony with our sacred Mother Earth and her rhythm. After researching the best ways to support environmental, social responsibility and sustainable efforts, Innersense Organic Beauty has teamed up with 1% for the Planet. We pledge to commit at least 1% of our sales revenue to these causes near and dear to our heart.

Taking the environment to heart

More than 3,000 nonprofit worldwide partners have been researched and certified by 1% for the Planet and are part of the 1% for the Planet network. We join an alliance of 2,200 member companies in 45 countries that have all made similar commitments to Mother Earth. Over $225 million has been funneled to support their work protecting our climate, food, land, water and wildlife. We’re excited to have joined a vast, like-minded and meaningful network.

1% for the Planet is a resource for businesses like ours who want to give back to the Mother Earth with our time, talent and treasure. We believe nonprofits play a critical role in solving the many challenges facing our environment and planet, and we look forward to helping our nonprofit partners accomplish even more. Overall data shows only 3% of total philanthropy goes towards organisations supporting the environment. With our 1% for the Planet membership, we continue to provide funding directly to our partners which include Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, Women’s Voices for the Earth, California Coastkeeper Alliance, and others.

As part of our membership,1% for the Planet certifies our contributions, which add to the collective total of the entire network. The organisation got its start in 2002 when Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, realised they were both contributing a percent of sales to environmental grassroots organisations. They teamed up to formalise their giving and provide a platform for other companies to join their movement, creating 1% for the Planet. The concept began to resonate around the world and membership now includes major companies and celebrities alike. 

The future of Mother Earth is in our hands

Through the power of our collective giving, we are all coming together to protect the future of the environment and our planet. We will keep you posted on our 1% for the Planet experience and share with you the deepening relationships we have with our cause partners who give their all to protect our environment and Mother Earth.

    The point really is to not rely on plastics to begin with. Glass can be recycled. yes, it is more dangerous in the shower, however REUSABLE rubber grips on the bottles would help with that problem. 1 % is virtually nothing

      Hi Cheryl,

      We appreciate your feedback! We are actually excited to be sharing more on this page soon and one piece where we are excited to share tons of information and insight on the different materials out there. This is a complex issue and we have taken massive action in exploring the possibilities of different materials for our products, including glass and many would be surprised by glass and it’s viability. Stay tuned for that blog soon, it will definitely provide more insight and how it completely changed the way we look at common sustainability beliefs.

      As for 1%, this is in reference to our 1% for the Planet Partnership where 1% of our annual revenue goes back to non profit partners and this percentage relative to Innersense is, in fact substantial and are proud to give back in any amount we can and beyond what’s required of our partnership.

      Thank You!
