Planet Partner - Our Charities


Ethical Companies Put Planet Before Profit

As part of our company pledge we donate 10% of our profits to charity. 
We believe that every company should be doing something to give back.
We have a sugar tax, alcohol tax, tobacco tax , the government will tax anything they deem to be profitable -
but is there a green tax? Nope! ...So its up to you, the consumer to vote with your product choices - After all, the power is in your hands!
Tax or not, No matter we've imposed our own. 10% of profits to Environmental Charities and good causes every time. NO Exceptions.
 
We currently support two wonderful initiatives and with your support they continue to do incredibly important work to look after our planet - protecting wildlife, cutting global emissions to supporting rural workers overseas.  
 
Could you imagine being born, growing up and being shown a picture of a tiger, but being told they don't exist any more?  Or an elephant? or a Panda...
 

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)

WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Our mission is to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together.

To achieve our mission, we're finding ways to help transform the future for the world’s wildlife, rivers, forests and seas; pushing for a reduction in carbon emissions that will avoid catastrophic climate change; and pressing for measures to help people live sustainably, within the means of our one planet.

What are they doing?

The Amazon is burning. Almost 73,000 fires have been recorded in the Amazon rainforest this year – nearly double the number for the whole of 2018. We must fight the causes and protect this precious place.

 

WHY THE AMAZON IS SO IMPORTANT

South America’s Amazon contains nearly a third of all the tropical rainforests left on Earth. Despite covering only around 1% of the planet’s surface, the Amazon is home to 10% of all the wildlife species we know about – and probably a lot that we don’t know yet.

Our research shows that, on average, a 'new' species of animal or plant is being discovered in the Amazon every 3 days. However, tragically, because huge parts of the forest are being destroyed so fast, we may never know all the riches it holds.

People around the world, as well as locally, depend on the Amazon. Not just for food, water, wood and medicines, but to help stabilise the climate, playing a critical role in global and regional carbon and water cycles.

The Amazon is under siege like never before. Deforestation and fire are once again on the increase, and protected areas and indigenous lands face increasing threats. It needs our help more than ever. We cannot tackle the climate crisis without the Amazon’s vital life-sustaining role

Not only can you donate to WWF as a whole you can also adopt an animal - there are 15 species to choose from, we obviously adopted a GIANT PANDA earlier this year, but with your help we'd love to adopt more - take a look at https://support.wwf.org.uk/adopt-an-animal and send us a message saying which animal we should adopt next!

 

Marine Conservation Society (MCS)

We believe too much is being taken out and too much is being put into our seas. Our scientists, campaigners, volunteers, advocates, data experts, fundraisers, divers and researchers are all passionate about creating a sustainable future for our seas.

 

What are they doing?

Our actions have implications for pollution in the ocean, which in turn impacts our health and welfare. We need to move away from a throwaway society to a circular economy in which all products are designed to be repaired, reused and remade, thereby removing waste and litter.

The Clean Seas programme has been a leader in reducing marine pollution over the last decade. We have advocated for change which has led to charges for single-use bags, removal of micro-beads in personal care products, changes in labelling on commonly ‘mis-flushed’ items, and a deposit return system being designed for Scotland.

Our oceans continue to need our protection, with rising temperatures and changes in chemistry due to our carbon emissions. We need to reduce the pressures on our oceans.

If you want to join up with the PANDA Botanical Team on our next beach clean up then join our mailing list to keep in touch via our newletter!

 

So, thats our charities - we feel extremely passionate about protecting our planet, we might be the last generation that can do so.  Your choices may well be the difference between recovery or irreversible damage.  Please do not underestimate your power, companies produce for consumers, Governments are elected by people.  If you can start by just making small changes to support the right companies then all companies will have to change. and with change, comes hope!
