Dotjay Ltd has joined 1% for the Planet this month, and I’m really pleased. What’s that? It’s a worldwide movement of businesses and individuals who donate to and volunteer with non-profits that are working to protect our planet.
As a business member, 1% of business revenue goes to environmental non-profits every year. Only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment, and only 5% of that comes from businesses. I believe that small business owners like myself have an important part to play in addressing the climate crisis, and this is just one way to do that.
This commitment is part of a series of changes I’ve been making to become a more responsible and sustainable business. I’ll be writing more about these changes and my commitment to sustainability and ethical conduct over the coming months. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, head to onepercentfortheplanet.org to find out more about the movement and how to get involved.
I’m also really pleased and honoured to be working with Possible at the moment as part of this commitment, volunteering time to make their website more accessible. Check them out at wearepossible.org.
