1% for the Planet

We are thrilled to be partnering with 1% for the Planet, cementing our commitment to take responsibility and give back to our planet.

For as long as I can remember I have loved being outside in nature, exploring new places and learning about animals. As I’ve grown up I’ve been shocked to discover the impact that we are having on our planet, from plastic pollution to deforestation, carbon emissions to loss of species. 

As a lover of fashion and interiors, textiles became my focus and in learning about the significant contribution it makes to the climate issues, I knew there must be a better way, and that I needed to do something about this. Since the inception of Virgo & Co, I knew that one of the ways in which we would do this was through joining 1% for the Planet. 

This certifies that we donate 1% of our sales every year to support the work of amazing environmental charities. 

We understand that saving our planet takes more than what one person, company or organization can do on its own. That’s where 1% for the Planet comes in because we know we can do far more together than we can alone.

What is 1% for the Planet?

In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement.

1% for the Planet has helped to direct hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental nonprofits around the world. It is a network of like-minded individuals, businesses, donors and nonprofit organizations working together toward a common goal: protecting the future of our planet.
