1% for the Planet: Cast Your vote

Hairstory has committed to donating 1% of sales of 8-oz New Wash bottles to water-focused, non-profit organizations vetted by 1% for the Planet (learn more about our partnership with them here). After learning about countless local, national, and global causes worthy of our support, we thought: Why not ask our community to vote for who the money goes to?

These are the current candidates for the 2nd quarter of 2019:

FORCE BLUE unites the community of Special Operations veterans with the world of marine science and conservation for the betterment of both. Force Blue is the only nonprofit organization in the world that provides long-term, mission-based therapy for former combat divers – individuals in whom governments around the world have invested millions to create the best possible underwater and maritime operators – by retraining, retooling and redeploying them on missions of conservation, preservation and restoration.

RESTORE AMERICA’S ESTUARIES is dedicated to the protection and restoration of bays and estuaries as essential resources for our nation, and is leader to a national alliance of ten community-based coastal conservation organizations. Local projects restore coastal wetlands, improve water quality, open fish passages, build living shorelines, re-plant salt marshes and restore shellfish habitat.

WINYAH RIVERS ALLIANCE is an environmental nonprofit protecting clean water and healthy habitats in 5 river watersheds located in the Carolinas. Through our Riverkeeper programs, we defend the fundamental right to fishable, swimmable, drinkable water in communities’ where we live, work and play.

SAVE THE WAVES protects coastal ecosystems around the world in partnership with local communities, utilizing a unique combination of protected areas, economics, and direct action.

GEORGIA STRAIT ALLIANCE is dedicated to protecting and restoring the marine environment of the Strait of Georgia in beautiful British Columbia. GSA works with experts, decision makers and individual Canadians to promote the sustainability of the Strait’s waters and communities, from defending the endangered southern resident orcas and their habitat, to teaching boaters and city-dwellers how to have less impact on their coast. GSA is a leading voice for the Strait and envisions a future with clean air and water for all beings living in this unique region – knowing that a healthy and protected marine environment is good for the economy, communities, and wildlife.
