ATLANTA, June 1, 2022 - The Educated Choices Program (ECP) has been selected to join the 1% for the Planet Network. 1% for the Planet is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through volunteering, in-kind product and service donations, and monetary donations of at least 1% of their sales or salary to certified nonprofit partners each year.
The Educated Choices Program was recommended as a potential nonprofit partner by a current member and was vetted after demonstrating real and measurable environmental outcomes and meeting other criteria. Other notable nonprofit partners include the Rainforest Trust, Audubon, and the Global Wildlife Conservation. Over $265 million has been donated to the environmental nonprofit partners since 1% for the Planet’s founding in 2002.
“Becoming a part of 1% for the Planet has been a goal of mine for a while now! We are honored to not only receive this recognition of the positive impact that our education programs have on the environment but also to have the opportunity to bring awareness to our work among philanthopists with our shared mission! We look forward to being an active member of the network.” - Karyn Knox, Chief Development and Partnerships Officer
This latest partnership highlights the Educated Choices Program’s growing recognition as a leader in food education and its commitment to building a healthier, more sustainable future. Earlier this year ECP announced a partnership with EARTHDAY.org and awards from both Charity Navigator and Candid, formerly Guidestar and the Foundation Center.
