Committed to the philosophy that business must worry as much about the social bottom line as profits, Yvon Chouinard (Founder and Owner of Patagonia) and Craig Mathews (Owner of Blue Ribbon Files) are particularly dedicated to environmental action and awareness. In 2002, they founded 1% for the Planet, a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet. Participating companies direct at least 1% of total sales each year to the organization’s approved nonprofit partners. To date, the organization has more than 1,200 members and has raised more than $175 million to benefit the environment.
