We like to say that when you use Lotus Sustainables, you’re loving the earth, one bag at a time. That’s because when we all change the way we shop, we can prevent millions of plastic bags from entering our environment every year.
But plastic bags are only the beginning!
Eliminating all plastic pollution is a big job. And creating a plastic-free future isn’t easy. But if we work together, anything is possible!
Helping to lead the plastic-free charge is 1% for the Planet, who connects businesses with environmentally conscious nonprofits.
As a 1% for the Planet member, Lotus Sustainables pledges 1% of our annual sales to eco-friendly, nonprofits that align with our values. 1% for the Planet members give back whether they are profitable or not. Because protecting the earth’s resources is the reason we are in business in the first place!
Through 1% for the Planet, we have had the privilege of supporting two organizations who, like us, are dedicated to a plastic-free future.
The Plastic Pollution Coalition is a growing global alliance of more than 1,200 organizations, businesses, and thought leaders in 75 countries working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impact on humans, animals, waterways, the ocean, and the environment. Their work focuses on educating the public about the harmful effects of plastic as well as sharing proactive initiatives for anyone to get involved.
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves, and beaches through a powerful activist network. Any time there is an issue regarding the health and safety of our beaches, local Surfrider volunteers are there, fighting for the beaches' right to be plastic-free. On a national level, the Surfrider Foundation campaigns for legislative victories that protect the coastal and ocean environments.
We look forward to connecting with more impactful organizations as we continue to work toward our mission of eliminating plastic from shopping and our vision of a plastic-free future.
