We are proud to announce that HOTSHOT joined 1% for the Planet, committing to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
We know our athletes put in 100% to be better every day. Now it’s our turn to put in an extra 1% to take care of the planet we explore on our training runs, bikes and swims.
“Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. We’re excited to welcome HOTSHOT to our global movement of over 2,700 businesses,” says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
