1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is an international nonprofit based out of Burlington, Vermont made up of businesses, environmental nonprofits, and consumers committed to solving some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
Business members donate 1% of their annual sales directly to one or multiple nonprofits in the 1% for the Planet network. Through the efforts of 1% for the Planet and their business members, more than $250 million has been given to environmental nonprofits since 2002.
Maine Beer Company has been a proud member of 1% for the Planet since our founding in 2009. We made the commitment to donating 1% of our gross annual sales to environmental nonprofits through 1% for the Planet. The reach of our beer community has allowed us to share this commitment to the environment with a much larger audience than we would ever have imagined when our company was founded.
