#PintsWithPurpose

 
 

Know that when you drink our beer you're giving back to our local environment!

We are a 1% for the Planet member and, as such, we donate a percentage of our sales annually to local 1% for the Planet approved environmental non-profits. 

What is 1% for the Planet?

1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to address the most pressing issues facing our planet. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $150 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Our founders - successful entrepreneurs who grew thriving businesses - understood that they were not alone in being committed to protecting the environment and giving back to our global community.

Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, numerous individuals, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 40 countries. Their headquarters are located in Burlington, VT. They also have a chapter office in France and strong representation in Japan, Australia, and western Europe.

 

How do we give back?

We donate quarterly to local 1% for the Planet approved non-profits.
