Well, we have an exciting announcement to make! We’re officially part of 1% for the Planet — a philanthropy initiative from Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard.
What does that mean? It means that we’re now part of a group of businesses that have committed to donating 1% of their profits to charities that conserve wildlife and their habitat.
And why now? Its increasingly important to protect these lands and to teach the next generations to enjoy and nurture them. We are dedicated to supporting education, research, and clean-up efforts that create thriving ecosystems and sustainable development with the hope that human prosperity can coexist with conservation goals.
1% for the Planet is a giving program that partners businesses (that’s us!), individuals, and organizations with groups that are working on behalf of a sustainable future for humans and animals.
What does that technically mean? Now that we’re part of the 1% network — which includes other businesses like Patagonia, New Belgium Brewing, and Klean Kanteen — we are committed to donating the equivalent of 1% of our gross sales through monetary, in-kind, and approved promotional support directly to nonprofits.
We’ll donate 1% of all Shrub and vinegar sales to local marine organizations!
Here’s a Vinaigrette Recipe to celebrate —
This vinaigrette makes the most of what you have. It celebrates the bits and bobs, the dregs, the things that get left behind. And of course we like it best with our Shrub Farm shrubs — made with local ingredients that reflect the best of the Northwest. Use your favorite olive oil to take it to the next level.
