New Partnership with 1% for the Planet
By joining with 1% for the Planet, we’ve committed to donating 1% of our revenues to nonprofits who are working to protect the environment. More specifically, we’ll use our 1% to support local organizations who are making a difference in the areas of agriculture and the protection of Maine’s waters, both fresh and salt, and the fish, birds, and wildlife which rely upon them for survival.
As lifelong Mainers, we recognize how fortunate we are to live in a place with bountiful natural resources. As a business that wouldn’t exist without clean, quality produce grown in Maine, we recognize the importance of preserving these resources.
For a single small business like ours, the challenge of trying to make a positive impact on our community and our environment can seem daunting. Partnering with 1% for the Planet makes us part of a global network of like-minded businesses both large and small who have donated over 175 million dollars to support the environment. Locally, we’re inspired by and appreciate Maine Beer Company’s involvement in this movement.
To kick off our partnership with 1% for the Planet, we’re happy to bring four of the organizations we will be supporting into the tasting room during the month of May. Each Friday in May, we will donate all tips and 10% of tasting room sales to a local group doing great work for the community and the environment. Representatives from these organizations will be on hand to share their missions and highlight the work they are doing. We invite and encourage you join us in May to support this great work!
