Fullcircle Innovations Announces Partnership with 1% for the Planet

Author: Fullcircle Innovations
Industry: Non Profit

Tokyo, Japan, Jan 31, 2011 -- Fullcircle Innovations joined 1% for the Planet (1%), pledging a portion of its sales to support non-profit organizations focused on sustainability. Fullcircle Innovations is a great addition to the network. By signing on to 1%, it shows they’re really walking the walk in their sustainability efforts,” says Terry Kellogg, 1% CEO. “They're using generosity as a tool with which to build their business and enabling valuable environmental work along the way. We're excited to welcome them to the 1% family."

“We are happy to join the 1% for the Planet family and contribute even more to speed up the sustainability changes that our planet needs.” Says Flavio Souza – Founder / CEO of Fullcircle Innovations. Members of 1% contribute one percent of revenues directly to any of the approved non-profit environmental organizations in 1%’s network. Non-profits are chosen based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Over 1,600 non-profits worldwide are included in the 1% program.

“We’ve been averaging at least one new business member a day, and have exceeded over 1,200 members in 38 countries, and a network that has funneled over $50 million of critically needed funds into the hands of environmental non-profit groups to date,” comments Kellogg.“We are thrilled by the support we have gained as it proves the environmental ethic is trickling upward to larger corporate entities. The shared belief that you can do well as a business by doing the right thing with respect to the environment is clearly apparent. There’s a paradigm shift happening here and it’s happening organically.”
