So… It’s Not a Craft, But Is Really Inspiring

As I was scouring the internet in hopes to be inspired regarding what to post about, a great friend of mine led me to this video by Patagonia about the 1% for the Planet movement. As I mentioned in the title, it has absolutely nothing to do with crafts, making things, and/or diy projects; but, you really have to watch it. Your life will change! Okay, that’s a big statement, but you will definitely have a renewed love for nature and the environment. Basically, 1% for the Planet is “a  network of companies that give at least 1% of their sales to environmental causes. It has grown into a global movement with companies of every size” (Patagonia). Hearing the testimonies from both large and small business owners about this movement and seeing how such a small commitment makes such a large impact is amazing! Watch the link below:
