Hands-On Education is giving back 1% of all sales, not profits, to environmental causes.

Hands-On Education, a global educational resources company, are delighted to enter into a partnership with 1% For The Planet. Since 2002 1% For The Planet have given millions to environmental partners. Today, 1% for the Planet’s global network consists of thousands of businesses and environmental partners working toward a better future.

“Working with 1% For The Planet is a great fit for Hands-On Education,” said Hands-On Education's co-founder and Lead Creator, Jeanie Fair. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make every effort to minimise our carbon footprint, it's great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”

The objectives of this new partnership:

Supporting global reforestation efforts.
Empowering consumers with sustainable actions.
Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration.

'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 are doing vital work to increase giving and support on-the-ground action. We're excited to welcome Hands-On Education to our global movement,' says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.

The membership is designed to be a simple way for businesses to give back and get involved in global environmental projects. For every topic, book or year group that is sold from Hands-On Education's inventory, and from the wider profits made by it's parent, Fair Consultancy Group, the company will give one percent of sales to 1% For The Planet. Currently, most of this is done through our partnership with One Tree Planted. This non-profit have more than doubled the number of trees planted each year, and are working with partners across 80+ countries in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Pacific.
