One Percent for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a coalition of businesses who pledge 1% of their total revenue towards supporting environmental non-profits. Velocitek has been a member since 2006.
Here's a list of the non-profits we have supported:
Sailors for the Sea
Our 1% contribution to Sailors for the Sea is used to support the organization’s core programs, including its Clean Regattas program. This third-party certification program helps regattas, yacht clubs and sailing programs voluntarily achieve higher environmental standards.
From the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to the Deepwater Horizon spill, it’s evident that the world’s oceans need our help today, more than ever. We believe that individually we have a small impact in preserving our oceans, but together, we can make a difference. Visit the Sailors for the Sea website below to learn more about the organization and how you can promote healthy sailing in your local community.
