"Our member companies have donated more than $175 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We're excited to welcome Osom Brand to our global network," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.

1% For The Planet makes it easy for companies and organizations to support what matters most: our communities and our planet. We are very excited to join this amazing network.” says Patricia Ermecheo, CEO & Founder of Osom Brand.

Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.

 About 1% for the Planet

1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.

Through our business and individual membership, 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of the network.

 

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, a new and expanding core with hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries.

July 29 2016

We are so excited to announce that our first 8 designs of sustainable socks are finally out.

 

New Osom Brand socks ethically made in Guatemala of 95% recycled clothes (outdoor designs) and 85% recycled clothes (casual designs). The colors of the socks are possible by using blends of mixed recycled clothing, recycled cotton and recycled denim. We are working towards an expanded range of colors for our future arrivals.

No water or dyes have been used in the process. Saving thousands of gallons of water and without splashing a single drop of toxic waste. 

Our mission is to create new quality clothing with discarded clothing in a sustainable way. Help reduce textile waste from going into landfills and help reduce the impact of the fashion industry on our environment. 

Specially designed and produced for comfort, softness and breathability for everyday activities and active outdoor lifestyle.
