Get to Know 1% for the Planet
At Happsy, our mission is twofold. Of course, a major part of our purpose is to offer you safe, healthy sleep on a cozy, affordable organic mattress. But a second part of our purpose that’s equally as important is our commitment to giving back.
Just like you, we care about the environment. (After all, it’s the only one we’ve got!) From production and packaging to sales and shipping, we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to minimize waste and support the planet. That’s why we’ve partnered with 1% for the Planet, a global organization whose members contribute at least one percent of their sales to environmental causes.
Founded in 2002, 1% for the Planet now has over 1,200 members in 48 countries. The idea is simple: because companies make a profit from the Earth’s resources, they should find a way to give back to the Earth and protect those resources. This idea resonated strongly with the Happsy team since we aspire to make better choices for ourselves, our customers, and our planet.
By 2012, 1% for the Planet contributed $100 million to environmental preservation, with leading brands such as Honest Tea, Brushfire Records, New Belgium Brewing, and of course, Happsy, soon joining the movement. As of 2019, the organization has certified more than $225 million in support to approved environmental nonprofits!
Why we give back
At Happsy, we’ve recognized that our customers want to channel social responsibility through the brands they support. In fact, 66% of people (and 73% of Millennials) say they are more willing to pay for products from companies that are committed to a positive environmental impact.
Since we know this is true, we’ve made sure our certified organic products help support the larger organic movement, which is dedicated to health, sustainability, and the preservation of our natural world.
By partnering with 1% for the Planet, Happsy is all about leaving the world better than we found it. We are proud to be one of the thousands of companies across the globe who promote a better Earth and give back to our wonderful planet.
