Friends of the Environment (FRIENDS) is a proud 1% for the Planet non-profit partner. By joining 1% for the Planet, we have the ability to be connected with businesses and individuals around the world who share our vision for a sustainable future. Anyone can join 1% for the Planet and pledge 1% of your earnings to help make the world a better place.
FRIENDS believes one of the best ways we can make a positive impact on the future is by educating our youths and empowering them to become environmental leaders and change makers.
Thanks to 1% for the Planet, FRIENDS is an annual recipient from Plaine Products, a small business on a mission to help eliminate single-use plastic by offering alternative circular products. Plaine Products line includes hair and body products which are aloe-based and made of responsibly sourced ingredients.
"We believe it's key that people understand the problem and consider making changes in their own life", said Plaine Products CEO Lindsey McCoy. "That's why we consider it critical to support groups like Friends of the Environment that are doing important education and awareness work and getting to the heart of what it means to be sustainable".
Plastic pollution is a problem that we can solve, but it will take partnerships, providing education and offering solutions, like the ones between FRIENDS and Plaine Products. We are proud to be their partner in this effort!
