Dondi Vintage pledges 1% of all sales to Environmental Causes.
New York City, 1/12/22 - Dondi Vintage joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
Having a sustainable business model is at the forefront of what Dondi Vintage stands for. We sell vintage not only because it is one-of-a kind and unique, but also because it is the single best way to participate in fashion not at the expense of our planet. Buying vintage is recycling clothing that could have otherwise ended up in a landfill, and offering a refreshing alternative to fast fashion. Fast fashion pushes trends on us that will feel old and tired within weeks, further feeding into throwaway culture. Vintage offers classic and timeless quality pieces that will withstand the test of time, and now each purchase will benefit our planet.
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Dondi Vintage to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved environmental nonprofits around the globe. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
