As of July 1st, 2017, SLIPPA has officially joined 1% for the Planet. We pledge to donate 1% of our annual net sales to environmental causes. For those who are not familiar with 1%, this is a non-profit that was initiated by Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia. His goal was to take responsibility of the environmental impacts running a business can have, especially when it comes to manufacturing.
SLIPPA was always very conscious of what materials we utilized and working conditions in our factories, however we felt we can do more. Our brand is rooted in the idea that we can create a social cause that directly influences social behavior.
It is our responsibility not just as business owners, but as human beings to protect our environment. Our planet is quickly deteriorating, but it is not too late. We can still save our habitat and have a home for future generations.
