Iron Vegan pledges 1% of all sales to environmental causes to protect the planet
Written by Jeff Ing, Iron Vegan Brand Manager
The earth is not a garbage can and neither is your body.
Because, as they say, what goes in is what comes out. Iron Vegan fuels everyday active lifestyles with products made from real food ingredients that come from nature. To ensure that we can always deliver the high-quality that you deserve, we need to be good stewards of the world we live in. This isn’t only for the sake of our ingredients. We believe that it is our responsibility to take care of the environment, just like we would our own bodies. To show our commitment, Iron Vegan has joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support environmental organizations focused on the environment.
“We are so proud of our progress towards building a more sustainable future for our planet, our people, and our communities. A future where sustainable well being is in the heart & mind of how we make our decisions. We have audacious ambitions as we strive to reach our goal of becoming a Net Zero organization by 2050. In addition to creating positive change at Iron Vegan we are committed to supporting sustainability efforts on a larger scale. This is a time for businesses & brands to be ambitious and to assume responsibility for their impacts and the role that we play in building a future that is restorative, reparative and regenerative. We are thrilled to partner with 1% for the Planet to collaborate on this shared global movement that understands the necessity of protecting the natural environment and the intersectional truth of wellness of people and the planet.”, says Shawna Ketter, Senior Director ESG & Culture, Jamieson Wellness
“Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We’re excited to welcome Iron Vegan to our global movement.”, says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved Environmental Partners around the globe. Environmental Partners are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of Environmental Partners worldwide are currently approved.
