1% For The Planet
The MREA is now a non-profit partner of 1% for the Planet, an alliance of over 1,380 member companies in 43 countries that give one percent of revenues to environmental causes.
We're eligible to receive donations from 1% member companies, placing us among a diverse, global network of environmental organizations. 1% member businesses fuel this non-profit network through their annual contributions, which totaled over $22 million in 2010. Partnership with 1% greatly expands the potential pool of funding to which MREA can look to for support.
Over 2,300 non-profits worldwide are included in the 1% network, and over $70 million has been funneled to the non-profit partners to date. “The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful force in solving the world’s problems,” Yvon Chouinard, founder of 1% for the Planet.
MREA is proud to be accepted as a 1% for the Planet Partner. This Partnership will help us to provide thousands of people with practical skills and knowledge to reduce the impact of their energy usage and live more lightly on the planet.
