We’re serious about meaningful commitment to the environment, and to the communities we depend on to make us shine. We understand that what is good for them is also good for us. Before our first product went on sale, we sought out environmental organizations that we believed would effectively champion the causes we’re most passionate about, and uphold the values of our brand. We’re quite happy with the results of our search, and have since partnered with the following respected organizations…
1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is an internationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and has become the gold standard for a global movement—driving critical philanthropic support to address the most urgent environmental issues of our time. Founded in part to certify reputable giving and help prevent greenwashing, 1% for the Planet certification is given to businesses that meet a high-bar of commitment—agreeing to donate 1% of total annual sales (not just profit) to environmental causes.
As a 1% for the Planet Business Member, Olive+Comet is proud to contribute a percentage of total annual sales directly to social and environmental causes. We believe that business is not only capable of redefining social and environmental outcomes—but has a moral responsibility to address them.

UK-based Ecologi plants trees internationally and invests in projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Each month, Ecologi also supports carbon reduction projects certified at the very highest level (Gold Standard and equivalent).
Keeping our environmental footprint small was top of mind—but we also wanted to employ proactive sustainability solutions that we could further leverage to account for special circumstances. Ecologi made this easy for us. Our business subscription allows Olive+Comet to operate climate positive on the whole (through a combination of tree plantings and carbon offset strategies), and provides us with the option to offset even more when needed, as dictated by our business activity.
