It affects everyone, everywhere. Ending it will take creativity, collaboration and eco-innovation. But there are straightforward steps we can take right now to make a difference.In 2020 we launched a sustainable children’s scooter line that uses recycled ocean plastic. As part of the “1% for the Planet” initiative, Micro donates 1% of the sales of the ECO children’s scooter product line to non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting the environment.What is 1% for the Planet?1% for the Planet is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the well-being of our planet and future generations. It inspires businesses and individuals to support environmental nonprofits through their membership and daily actions. Since its founding in 2002, its members have donated more than $265 million to environmental nonprofits to date.Why do we support environmental charities?“We recognize that the challenges facing our world are too great for any one person or organization to solve alone. To make meaningful positive change, we all need to work together. Companies like us have an even greater obligation to help. Our partnership with 1% for the Planet is another step in the right direction.”Wim Ouboter, Micro FounderWhere do Micro donations go?The proceeds donated from Micro support Parley’s Educational Programs, with the goal of providing worldwide access to ocean education, tools and experiences, inspiring marine conservation and empowering a network of impactful leaders: Ocean Guardians.
