Today the ecology.IT team renewed our commitment to 1% for the Planet by donating 1% of our annual profit to member nonprofit ecotrust.org. This organization’s mission is “to inspire fresh thinking that creates economic opportunity, social equity, and environmental wellbeing. Our goal is to foster a natural model of development that creates more resilient communities, economies, and ecosystems here and around the world.”
This organization views itself as a “social incubator,” by funding and fostering innovation and opportunity through technology and process changes like climate-smart mapping tools, FoodHub, and whole watershed restoration. We are excited and pleased to be associated both with the 1% for the Planet initiative and to fund work through ecotrust.org.
