In 2005 on a Mexican beach I read Let My People Go Surfing by the founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard. It drove a major shift in my life.
In the years since, I've supported mission-driven entrepreneurs. I've been earning and spending in the local economy.
Yvon Chouinard and Craig Mathews started 1% for the Planet with a commitment to driving change. Member businesses like mine and over 1200 others, give 1% of revenue (not profits) to non-profits registered with 1% for the Planet. I encourage other businesses to join this growing community.
