1% for the Planet

As a member of 1% for the Planet, Papaya Lane donates a minimum 1% of annual sales to support environmental non-profit organisations.

Core to our business is taking an active part on supporting sustainability, we do this by sourcing products created with the best sustainable and ethical standards. But we want our efforts to be scalable and that's we are proud members of the 1% for the Planet, a global organisation that connects dollars with doers to accelerate smart environmental giving.

What is 1% for the Planet?

1% for the Planet was created in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, 1% for the planet logo environmentalist and Founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies. Together they set out to build a network of like-minded businesses, non-profits and consumers who are united around the idea that profit and giving back can work symbiotically. 

Since 2002, 1% for the Planet offers businesses around the world a channel to give back one percent of their revenue to grassroots environmental groups who are out there working to keep natural wonders in the world. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 2,000 business members, a new and expanding core of individual members and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries. 

How could you contribute to the 1% for the Planet?

Each time you purchase your favourite sustainable brands from Papaya Lane's website, one percent of the total value of your order will go towards our pledge and the protection of our environment.

We are proud of taking part of the 1% for the Planet movement, we believe this amazing initiative deserves to be supported and shared. You can also help us by spreading the word and letting your friends and family know about it.

Thank you, with your support together we all are working for a better planet!
