Through 1% for the Planet, Smock donates a 1% of sales to the Pesticide Action Network and the Amazon Conservation Association
Here are some of the organizations that we believe in. We encourage you to get to know them and join in the hard work of saving the planet.
Pesticide Action Network.
Pesticide Action Network North America (or PAN) works to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. PAN links local and international consumer, labor, health, environment and agriculture groups into an international citizens’ action network. This network challenges the global proliferation of pesticides, defends basic rights to health and environmental quality, and works to ensure the transition to a just and viable society.
Amazon Conservation Association.
ACA’s mission is to conserve the biological diversity of the Amazon. Road construction, logging, and land clearing for agriculture are endangering the health of the Amazon rainforest. The Amazon Conservation Association works by forging ties with governments, nonprofits and people who depend on the rainforests for their livelihood, with the goal of saving rare species and habitats and learning from the land.
We partner with American Forests (the country’s oldest citizens’ non-profit organization) to help slow global warming through the planting of trees. We encourage customers to donate trees when ordering custom invitations. If you plant 10 trees, Smock matches that tree donation, and together we build a forest. Since 2008, we’ve planted over 10,000 trees. Customers can also purchase trees online when ordering social stationery or wedding samples (if you plant a tree, we’ll plant a tree too).
Change The World Series
In 2012, Smock launched the Change the World series. 100% of profits from cards in this series are donated to critical environmental causes and we can’t say enough good things about the organizations these cards help. Profits from the Change the World cards currently support projects at the Pesticide Action Network North America, Earthworks, and Seafood Watch.
