1% for the Planet membership
Perhaps it’s watching our son grow up and so feeling more responsibility for the future, or just a culmination of various travels. Whatever it is, we have been looking for a way to do something constructive...but what?
We rely on the natural environment that surrounds us in the Alps for our livelihoods in both winter and summer seasons. The influx of visitors throughout the different seasons help a huge variety of businesses thrive here, and it is the outstanding natural beauty of Haute Savoie that draws people to the area and does the majority of our work for us.
Having been toying with the idea of how to do a little bit more than the standard recycling, re-using and avoiding plastic, we were inspired (and grateful) to find the organisation 1% for the Planet. This organisation encourages businesses to invest 1% of their annual turnover to environmental and ethical projects. While our contribution is not going to save the world, we’re really pleased to feel like we’re contributing to something bigger!
