Help us decide where to donate
Every year we donate 1% of our turnover to environmental charities across the UK and beyond as part of our 1% for the Planet commitment. Over the last few years we’ve come across some amazing charities and people working day and night to protect our precious planet.
We wanted to introduce you to some of them, in particular those in your local community (whether in your nearest city, or elsewhere in the UK) so we’ve partnered with Bizgive to put the power of giving into your hands.
You decide, we BizGive.
BizGive asks you to choose where our donations go, and so gives you the power to direct change in your community.
Last year we gave £400,000 to environmental charities across the UK and beyond. You can read more about this in our sustainability report. This year, help us take a percentage of this giving to your local community, or vote for your favourite national charity.
We have £10,000 set aside to give to 9 environmental charities in across the UK. Each will receive a minimum of £500. The charity with the highest number of votes will get £4K, 2nd highest £2K and 3rd highest £1K. Voting will end on 1st March 2018.
You can find out more about each charity project here:
- Women’s Environment Network: Women’s food growing
- Trees for cities: planting urban woodlands
- Hartcliffe Health and Environment Action Group: Gardening for wellbeing

So get voting and help us spread word by sharing your project choice to encourage others to vote too.
BizGive is here to empower everyone to make the world a better place.
