1% for the Planet: Cast Your vote

Hairstory has committed to donating 1% of sales of 8-oz New Wash 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? Each title is linked to a website so you can do your research  – and maybe even get involved.

the candidates for the 1st quarter of 2020:

WASTE FREE OCEANS is on a mission to collect and transform plastics in our waters. By mobilising fisheries, brand owners, and the plastic industry, they create meaningful new items from marine litter collected and drive behaviour change.

CLEAN OCEAN ACTION improves the degraded quality of the marine waters off the New Jersey/New York coast by identifying the sources of pollution and mounting an attack on through research, public education, and citizen action to convince public officials to enact and enforce measures to clean up and protect our ocean.

SEASIDE SCAVENGE represents a passionate group of individuals who love more than anything to see our waterways clean, “our pre-loved stuff shared and to groove along to toe-tapping beats whilst we do it.” What was once a small clothes swap and beach clean is now a project that has grown and inspired communities to take a step towards cleaner coastlines and conscious consumerism across the globe.

CLEAN WATER FUND aims to protect water and health from watershed to water tap, support fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for everyone, protect from toxic contaminants, stem the tide of single-use disposables and plastic trash, keep our clean water laws strong and effective, and ensure clean, healthy drinking water for all communities. We all live downstream.

CALIFORNIA COASTKEEPER ALLIANCE was founded twenty years ago with the belief that clean and healthy water, oceans, and coasts are vital to California’s economy, public health, and way of life. CCKA works with locally-based Waterkeepers across California to develop, implement, and defend statewide policies and programs that keep our waterways and beaches safe to enjoy. Together, we fight for swimmable, fishable, and drinkable waters for Californians today – and for future generations.
