1% for the planet

Opportuniteas is creating a world where everyone can afford the best food that nature has to offer. Therefore we must protect our planet so the next generation can also enjoy these same foods.

That is why we have partnered with 1% for the Planet.

Since 1% for the Planet began in 2002, members have donated more than $175 million in support of environmental nonprofits doing critical work to save endangered plants and animals, protect critical habitat, maintain wild spaces, get people outdoors, and create a healthier planet,​ among other endeavors. All business members of 1% for the Planet commit to donating 1% of sales every year to ​the amazing nonprofits​ doing this work​.​ We are a global movement of over 1400 businesses doing work in 40 countries, all committed to giving back!​

The Natural Resources Defense Council's (NRDC) purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals and the natural systems on which all life depends. They work to restore the integrity of the elements that sustain life - air, land, and water - and to defend endangered natural places. They seek to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth. They strive to protect nature in ways that advance the long-term welfare of present and future generations.

Why did we pick the National Resources Defense Council?

-The New York Times

"NRDC is, by many accounts, the most effective lobbying and litigating group on environmental issues."
