A big part of starting Ahnu was to create a business model that allowed us to act as responsible citizens and to give back by partnering with like-minded organizations. By working together, we can achieve great things that truly make a difference in people’s lives. Listed below are some of our partnerships—we are thankful for all they do and more thankful to call them friends. Ahnu has contributed more than $315,000 to charitable organizations since our founding in 2006.
1% FOR THE PLANET
As part of our commitment to stewardship and social responsibility, Ahnu is honored to support 1% for the Planet by contributing 1% of our gross revenue on an annual basis to organizations that share our environmental values. 1% for the Planet was launched in 2001 by Yvon Chouinard, environmental activist and founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies. Astute and visionary businessmen, Chouinard and Mathews believe passionately that the health of the environment is integral to human and economic health, and that business is responsible for positive change. They created this association in an effort to bring other like-minded businesses in to help solve our environmental crisis and build successful companies at the same time. 1% for the Planet currently includes 1,200 member companies in 48 countries around the world. To date, more than 100 million dollars have been donated to foster positive environmental change. For more information, we encourage you to visit www.onepercentfortheplanet
