SANTA BARBARA, Calif., (February 2015) – SeaVees, the California-based footwear brand, is excited to announce its partnership with 1% For The Planet, an alliance of like-minded businesses that want to exact positive change for the natural environment.
Beginning this month, SeaVees will be pledging one percent of its sales to the preservation and restoration of the planet; donating to domestic and international grassroots environmental groups making a difference in their respective communities.
“SeaVees exists to fulfill our California dream, we’re a group of people who are committed to supporting the preservation and restoration of this planet,” said Steven Tiller, CEO and Chief Designer of SeaVees. “Joining 1% For The Planet is an effort to help preserve that dream, protect our environment and create positive change around the world for the benefit of generations to come.”
Understanding the need to align with an organization that sees the necessity of social and environmental action, SeaVees is proud to join 1% For The Planet, which was founded in 2002 by Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard and Blue Ribbon Flies’ Craig Mathews, who understand that profit and loss can be directly linked to the health of the planet.
By contributing one percent of its net annual sales to grassroots environmental groups, SeaVees hopes to affect real change, while attracting conscientious consumers and showing its commitment to corporate responsibility.
