How Choosing Natracare is 1% better

In 2019, Natracare became the first period product brand to join 1% for the planet. We donate 1% of our annual turnover to environmental organisations that tackle our planet’s most pressing environmental issues.

Why did Natracare join 1% For the Planet?

The environment has always been at the centre of everything Natracare does – so becoming a member of 1% for the Planet felt like a natural choice and a good way of supporting the ecosystems that support us each  day.

Over 2,000 environmentally conscious companies and thousands of non-profit partners make up the 1% for the Planet network across 60 countries. More than $435 million has been donated by members since the network’s launch in 2002 and we’re proud to make up part of that contribution.

How much does Natracare donate?

Currently, our 1% pledge means that we’ve donated over  to environmental causes since joining in 2019. As we grow as a business, the amount that we donate each year will grow, too.

You can see a financial breakdown of the different giving categories that we’ve donated to, and the amounts, below:
