“Now, more than ever, it’s important to do business differently”
As well as championing amazing organic wines, we believe Terra Organica can be a force for good, and that businesses are stronger when they stand together. That’s why we’re proud to be a member of 1% For The Planet; a global network of businesses and individuals collectively taking action to help the environment. Alongside 3,000 other businesses, we donate 1% of our turnover to approved non-profit partners with the aim of protecting the future of our planet.
What’s It All About?
1% For The Planet believes that collective action is key to tackling the environmental crisis. 1% seems like a small amount for a business to contribute, but if enough of us make this seemingly small commitment together, it adds up to have genuine global impact.
Some of the actions supported by 1% For The Planet include:
- Reducing plastic waste
- Protecting wildlife
- Fighting for climate policy
- Supporting communities on the frontline of climate change
How Does It Work?
As a business, we make a commitment to give 1% of our revenue to environmental causes approved by 1% For The Planet. This help goes directly to those causes. 1% For The Planet is there to advise and pair businesses with the right non-profit organisations but doesn’t act as an intermediary. Our donations go straight to those causes. 1% For The Planet certifies our commitment to donate 1%, and ensures that we only give to credible and legitimate causes.
Which Causes Will We Support?
As this is our first year of being members of 1% For The Planet, we haven’t yet decided which three causes we will support, and that’s where you come in! We would love to know which of the 1% For The Planet causes you feel most passionately about, and later this year we’ll hold a vote so that you, our customers, can be involved in selecting three worthy causes from the approved list. Watch this space for more information on that!
You don’t have to be a business to get involved. 1% For The Planet has an individual membership programme for people who want to pledge 1% of their annual salary to environmental causes, and 1% For The Planet ensures they are linked to the right organisations to have the biggest possible impact. You can read more about membership here.
To boost support further, we also include an option to donate £1 to 1% For The Planet when you check out on our website. Just click the ‘donate’ button and your £1 will go straight towards our three 1% For The Planet causes at the end of every year. Cheers to that!
At Terra Organica, care for the environment is at the heart of everything we do. The winemakers we choose to work with use organic and low impact methods to ensure the future of their vineyards and the communities they work in. While water and energy conservation is a part of what they do, much of the emphasis is on preserving the local environment.
1% For The Planet understand that the local and the global can’t be separated, and that we have the power to make real change by working together. Our membership allows us to go beyond our core mission of producing high quality, yet affordable organic wines. Standing shoulder to shoulder with over 3,000 other global businesses such as Patagonia, Pukka Herbs, Indie Bay Snacks and Paynter Jacket Co we are helping protect the future of our planet.
We are proud to be able to bring the wonderful wines our winemakers produce to our customers, but organic wine is more than just a great product. There’s a philosophy at the heart of it that says ‘what’s good for the planet is good for all of us’. We want to bring that philosophy to everything we do, and being a member of 1% For The Planet helps us to do this.
So, we invite you to read more about the great work they do and, if you find it inspiring, perhaps consider becoming a member yourself.
