Make Every Day Earth Day Make Every Day Earth Day

iGive.com wants to help you help your Cause – whatever that cause may be.  On Earth Day this year, we are celebrating one of our merchant partners, Coyuchi, who is dedicated to providing you with quality products, while maintaining a high standard of excellence in environmental and social initiatives.

From an environmental standpoint, Coyuchi looks at the full life of a product—from the farm where the fiber is produced to what happens to the product when it reaches the end of its life. By partnering with fabric mills and workshops that share this reverence for environmental and social sustainability,  Coyuchi’s high quality standards can be maintained and impact on the planet, minimized. Through continued effort and ingenuity, they work to ensure environmental performance at production facilities.

“We believe that knowing where your linens come from and how they are made brings peace of mind.”

Coyuchi uses only natural fibers, sourcing the materials carefully and processing them minimally—so organic cotton truly feels like cotton, linen feels like linen, and wool feels like wool.  To guarantee that products align with these goals to be as ethical, sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible, they rely on guidelines and certifications from organizations around the world, including Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) certification and a growing collection of Fair Trade Certified goods.

To learn more about Coyuchi’s extensive environmental & social initiatives, visit their site here.

With iGive.com & Coyuchi, shop with confidence and shop with conscience.

Every purchase plants a tree.

Changing the world sounds big. None of us can change the world alone, but when we all work together, a lot of small choices can make a huge impact – every step makes a difference.  This is Bambeco’s philosophy and also iGive.com’s (by changing shopping for good!).

According to Oxford University research, planting and growing trees is the best way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reverse global warming.

Bambeco is proud to partner with American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country, for a joint commitment to restore and protect forests and minimize climate change.

American Forests Logo

With every Bambeco purchase, American Forests will plant a tree. That means every earth friendly purchase adds another tree to our landscape and another step towards counteracting climate change.

Since they launched the “Every Purchase Plants a Tree” initiative last November, they’ve planted over 20,000 trees—enough trees to supply oxygen for 40,000 people, save and clean 2.4 billion gallons of water and absorb 480 tons of carbon dioxide per year!

 

We are unwavering in our commitment to create and source products that are crafted in ways that cause less harm to the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.  For more information, check out Bambeco’s Sustainable Living Blog.

Together, we’ll grow forests. Together, we’ll change shopping for good.

Together we can do so much.

Microsoft continues it’s mission of empowerment by working to apply the power of technology to safeguard human rights and protect the planet. They recently issued their 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

During fiscal year 2016, Microsoft made progress on a number of fronts:

  • Expanding Microsoft’s commitment to sustainability by establishing new energy goals, including having data centers rely on a larger percentage of wind, solar and hydro power electricity over time.
  • Prioritizing inclusive design and accessibility in the development of products and services to empower everyone, while deepening the inclusive culture at Microsoft.
  • Enhancing companywide privacy principles and the Microsoft Privacy Statement to protect customers’ personal data and their right to privacy.
  • Holding suppliers accountable to human rights, labor, health and safety, environmental, and business ethics practices prescribed in Microsoft’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
  • Expanding economic opportunity to every corner of the planet through Microsoft Philanthropies’ three-year commitment to donate $1 billion in public cloud computing for nonprofits around the world.
  • Contributing to public policy discussions with a new book, “A Cloud for Global Good,” which lays out a roadmap of 78 specific policy recommendations to help ensure cloud computing is trusted, responsible and inclusive.

As part of Microsoft’s commitment to transparency, this report builds on the company’s prior annual citizenship reporting, but is now designed to be a living reporting website where Microsoft can offer both the year-over-year data we traditionally provide as well as ongoing updates throughout the year on important developments on our efforts.

Microsoft takes seriously the responsibilities to help the world achieve more and is committed to meeting that responsibility to address economic, social and environmental issues. Microsoft also recognizes the importance of partnerships and value the opportunity to work with nonprofits, advocates, governments, academics, customers and employees to advance progress. Together, Microsoft believes we can strengthen communities and ensure greater outcomes for all.

Microsoft will continue to dedicate themselves to the challenges humankind faces, the role technology can play and the unique contributions Microsoft can make in cooperation with others around the world. Microsoft purchases made through iGive.com will also give back to your favorite cause.

iGive.com partner Enterprise

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is teaming with the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) as a category sponsor of the 2017 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. The annual WTTC awards are among the highest accolades in the global travel industry and represent the gold standard in sustainable tourism.

These awards recognize best practices and are based upon the principles of:

  • environmentally friendly operations;
  • support for the protection of cultural and natural heritage; and
  • the social and economic well-being of local people in travel destinations around the world.

For the second consecutive year, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is the exclusive sponsor of the WTTC’s People Award. This award honors organizations dedicated to the concept of “capacity building” – a long-term investment in the tourism workforce to enhance employee skills, competencies and abilities through local training and education.

“Travel and tourism careers already account for a significant part of our economy, providing an estimated 284 million jobs across the global market,” said Greg Stubblefield, executive vice president and chief strategy officer at Enterprise Holdings Inc., which owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand. “And we are committed to helping build an even more robust and inclusive global talent pipeline through this industry-leading WTTC initiative.”

Travel Industry Leadership

Enterprise Holdings’ annual revenues place it near the top of the global travel industry, exceeding all other rental car companies, as well as most airlines, cruise lines, hotels, tour operators and online travel agencies. In addition, Enterprise Holdings is the only company in the international car rental industry – and one of a handful in the global travel industry – to complete a sustainability report in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 “Core” Guidelines.

“As the world’s largest car rental company, we are in a strong position to help drive sustainable solutions and policies around the globe,” noted Stubblefield, who is a member of the WTTC as well as the U.S. Travel Association’s CEO Roundtable. He also serves on the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board, which – as the advisory body to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce – provides counsel on current tourism industry concerns, emerging issues and government policies.

“Travel and tourism represents one of the fastest growing segments in the global economy, so it’s especially important that the growth of our sector is managed responsibly,” Stubblefield added. “The WTTC awards are an opportunity to honor organizations that benefit local communities, support cultural diversity and advance biodiversity conservation, all within a viable and profitable business model.”

Furthermore, the WTTC is working closely with the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), a United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. The WTTC and UNWTO are working together to improve the understanding of the importance of travel and tourism to social and economic development worldwide.

The WTTC’s Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognize businesses and organizations whose commitments to sustainability and long-term vision have not only helped to shape international standards for environmentally and socially responsible tourism, but also have demonstrated how tourism can be a force for good. The extensive three-part application process begins with a written submission that is evaluated by an independent judging panel of sustainable tourism experts. Finalists are then visited on-site by experts who verify the claims made in their applications. Winners and finalists will be honored at a special Awards Ceremony during WTTC’s 2017 Global Summit April 25-27 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Applications for the 2017 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards are now open, and candidates will be able to apply until Nov. 14, 2016. For more information, visit www.wttc.org/tourism-for-tomorrow-awards.

Petco, a specialty pet food, supplies and services retailer and iGive partner, was awarded a Grand Energy Champion Award by the San Diego Gas & Electric Company for its dedication to energy sustainability at its national support center.

The company took over a 300,000-square-foot semi-conductor plant and relocated its’ Petco support center. The pet-friendly, energy-efficient building increases employee interaction and productivity — allowing for better team building through the use of common spaces throughout the building. It includes more than 75 skylights and nearly 3,000 solar panels on the roof.  These updates provide natural lighting and allow the building lighting systems to run at half capacity. The building’s energy efficiency is further accented by drought tolerant landscaping and electric car charging stations for employee use.

“Petco’s two key goals when we started this project were to use the least amount of energy possible for our needs and to minimize the long-term impact it has on the environment,” said Charlie Piscitello, Petco’s Senior Vice President, Chief People Officer, “Our company, our people, our culture and this wonderful facility are all a reflection of our commitment to our vision of healthier pets, happier people and better world.”

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) announced that it has closed an underwritten public offering of senior notes, including the first U.S. Corporate Sustainability Bond. The company will use the net proceeds from the offering of $500 million in 2.450% Senior Notes due 2026 to enhance its sustainability programs around coffee supply chain management through Eligible Sustainability Projects. This includes coffee purchases from suppliers verified by a third-party as complying with Starbucks ethical sourcing verification program of Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices, the development and operation of farmer support centers in coffee growing regions, as well as short and long term loans made through Starbucks Global Farmer Fund. “Coffee is at the core of our business, and we intend to continue to finance initiatives that will make a positive social and environmental impact in our coffee supply chain as well as other areas across our business,” said Scott Maw, chief financial officer, Starbucks. “Issuing a bond focused on sustainable sourcing, demonstrates that sustainability is not just an add-on, but an integral part of Starbucks, including our strategy and finances.”

Each year, Starbucks invests significantly in its comprehensive approach to ethically source its coffee. This includes supporting coffee farming communities, mitigating the impact of climate change, and supporting long-term crop stability and farm sustainability. Starbucks operates a network of eight farmer support centers around the world (Rwanda, Tanzania, Colombia, China, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Guatemala and Ethiopia), and has a commitment to provide $50 million in farmer financing in the form of short and long term loans. Starbucks also purchased a coffee farm in Costa Rica and has turned this into a global agronomy center. All of this is grounded in the company’s open sourced C.A.F.E. Practices developed with Conservation International over 15 years ago. This rigorous set of best practices helps to ensure that the methods used in growing and processing coffee are efficient, effective and sustainable, both environmentally and socially. In 2015, 99% of Starbucks 551 million pounds of coffee purchases were verified as ethically sourced and Starbucks became a founding member of the Sustainable Coffee Challenge – a call to action to make coffee the first sustainable agricultural product in the world.

“The longevity of the coffee industry is directly linked to the social, economic and environmental conditions of coffee communities around the world,” said Craig Russell, executive vice president, Starbucks Global Coffee. “This new sustainability bond offers a way for investors to better understand the work we are doing to help ensure that there is a future for farmers and our industry.”

Sustainalytics, a leading global provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) research and ratings, delivered the second opinion for the Sustainability Bond. This independent review offers investors additional insight into the proposed projects to be funded by the bond, as well as the expected positive environmental and social impacts of these projects. Sustainalytics also rates Starbucks as an ESG leader in both overall and relative performance to its peers.

“Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of coffee farming practices helps to strengthen the overall sustainability of the coffee supply chain while advancing the socioeconomic conditions of coffee farmers,” said Simon MacMahon, Sustainalytics’ Executive Vice President of Advisory Services. “Starbucks has a significant influence on the global coffee market and is an industry leader when it comes to supply chain standards and sustainability initiatives. We are excited to support Starbucks Sustainability Bond and applaud their efforts to advance sustainability practices throughout their value chain.”

Starbucks will publish annual updates of the allocation of the proceeds throughout the term of the sustainability bond until the proceeds have been fully allocated to projects meeting the eligibility criteria. These updates will be reported publicly on the Starbucks website at www.starbucks.com and may include additional descriptions of select projects funded with sustainability bond proceeds, and, where possible, their environmental and/or social impacts.

Demonstrating Sustainable Innovation is a Powerful Engine for Growth and a Catalyst for Change

NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE)  released its FY14/15 Sustainable Business Report, which details strong progress against the company’s environmental and social targets and sets a vision for a low-carbon, closed-loop future as part of the company’s growth strategy.

“At Nike, we believe it is not enough to adapt to what the future may bring – we’re creating the future we want to see through sustainable innovation,” said NIKE, Inc. President and CEO, Mark Parker. “Today our teams are advancing ambitious new business models and partnerships that can scale unprecedented change across our business and the industry.”

The report highlights how Nike has embedded sustainability across its business and signals Nike’s continued commitment to set aggressive sustainability targets and invest in disruptive innovation – all in service of driving company growth, delivering performance innovation for athletes and acting as a catalyst for change in the world.

“We’ve set a moonshot challenge to double our business with half the impact. It’s a bold ambition that’s going to take much more than incremental efficiency – it’s going to take innovation on a scale we’ve never seen before. It’s a challenge we are setting for ourselves, our collaborators and our partners as we move toward a circular economy future,” said Hannah Jones, NIKE, Inc. Chief Sustainability Officer and VP, Innovation Accelerator.

The company shared strong progress toward reported FY15 goals, including:

  • Reduced carbon emissions during a period of continued growth: Shipped more than 1 billion units in FY15 and revenue increased 52% from FY11 through FY15, while carbon emissions decreased by 18% per unit.
  • Delivered substantial water reductions: Increased water efficiency by 18% per unit in apparel materials dyeing and finishing and 43% per unit in footwear manufacturing, exceeding the goal of 15%.
  • Worked with fewer, better contract factories: 86% of contract factories demonstrated an investment in workers by achieving a minimum bronze rating on the Nike Sustainable Manufacturing & Sourcing Index, making progress toward 100% by FY20.
  • Improved product sustainability: Designed products that provide superior performance with a lower environmental impact – 98% of new footwear scored silver or better on our product sustainability indices, 80% of new apparel scored bronze or better and the use of environmentally preferred materials increased overall.
  • Drove down waste: In FY15, contract footwear factories diverted 92% of footwear factory waste from landfill or incineration without energy recovery.

As the next step on that journey Nike has set three strategic aims: minimize its environmental footprint, transform its manufacturing and unleash human potential.

Minimize Environmental Footprint

Nike aims to minimize its environmental footprint throughout the product lifecycle, looking at carbon and energy, chemistry, water and waste to identify strategies to use less, use better, innovate new solutions and, where possible, close the loop and reuse. For example, about 60% of the environmental impact in a pair of Nike shoes is embedded in the materials used. Knowing materials matter most, Nike is investing in creating a new palette of sustainable materials in a move toward closed-loop products, and has already incorporated recycled materials into 71% of its footwear and apparel products, in everything from apparel trims to soccer kits to Flyknit yarns.

Transform Manufacturing

Nike’s Manufacturing Revolution initiative is not only transforming what products Nike makes, but also how it makes them through technology, labor and sustainable innovation. In order to deliver new product innovation to consumers Nike is focused on creating technology-driven manufacturing, through more sustainable factories that place highly skilled, engaged and valued workers at the center. Nike is working with fewer, better contract factories that are committed to taking this journey.

Nike is also running pilot research programs dedicated to engaging and connecting workers to healthcare, education and finance networks to make positive changes inside and outside the workplace.

Unleash Human Potential

In addition to the commitments to workers through Manufacturing Revolution, Nike is also looking to unleash the potential of its own teams. Guided by the belief that diversity fosters creativity and accelerates innovation, Nike is strengthening its recruitment, promotion and retention of diverse talent throughout the world with the goal of reflecting the diversity of the consumers it serves and the communities where its employees live and work. Nike will accelerate its efforts by expanding representation of women and people of color to start, while continuing to increase diversity of all dimensions across its business long term.

The company is also introducing a new Family Care benefit in the U.S. that will support all new parents as well as employees caring for sick family members. Now mothers and fathers will receive an additional eight weeks paid time off and employees who need to care for family members also receive eight weeks paid time off.

On the field of play, Nike is serving the next generation of athletes by raising awareness of the physical inactivity epidemic and working with others to get kids moving. For example, Nike’s engagement with Let’s Move Active Schools in the U.S. has reached more than 10 million kids since 2013.

FY20 Targets

To achieve these three aims, Nike set new targets for FY20 spanning environmental impact areas and its entire supply chain, including:

  • To have zero waste from contracted footwear manufacturing sent to landfill or incineration without energy recovery.
  • To source 100% of products from contract factories meeting the company’s definition of sustainable.
  • To create products that deliver maximum performance with minimum impact, seeking a 10% reduction in the average environmental footprint and an increased use of more sustainable materials overall.
  • By the end of FY25, to reach 100% renewable energy in owned or operated facilities and to encourage broader adoption of renewable energy as part of an effort to control absolute emissions.

Nike believes these efforts – from materials innovation, to transforming its manufacturing models, to visionary 2020 targets – will deliver on Nike’s long-term strategy to leverage sustainable innovation as a powerful engine for growth and catalyst for change.

Kiehl's Since 1851 Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado / 100% of net profits, up to $50,000, from Kiehl's Limited Edition Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, featuring art by Nikki Reed and Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton will benefit Recycle Across America(TM). To date, Kiehl's has already raised $300,000 for the non-profit, supplying recycling labels to 4,500 schools. (PRNewsFoto/Kiehl's Since 1851)

In honor of Earth Day and the brand’s commitment to the environment, Kiehl’s Since 1851, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care is proud to announce two new products and programs that directly impact the environment.

First, the company will donate $50,000 to Recycle Across America™, the not-for-profit organization dedicated to delivering society-wide solutions that eliminate public confusion around recycling, stimulate the environmental economy and expedite progress. These funds will be used to create 65,000 standardized recycling labels for 650 K-12 schools in the United States.

The funds will be raised from Kiehl’s Limited Edition Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, featuring art by socially conscious influencers Nikki Reed, Gabrielle Reece & Laird Hamilton. 100% of net profits, up to $50,000, from this Earth Day campaign will benefit Recycle Across America™. To date, Kiehl’s has already raised $300,000 for the non-profit, supplying recycling labels to 4,500 schools, including School Districts in San Diego, Houston, Scottsdale and Culver City.

“We’ve been working with Recycle Across America since 2012. Their mission to introduce solutions that make recycling more simple, comprehensive and effective in the United States is perfectly aligned with our values,” says Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA. Through our Recycle & Be Rewarded program, Kiehl’s has collected 3,000,000 empty Kiehl’s bottles from our shoppers and recycled them on their behalf. We hope to reach the 3,500,000 mark this year!”

In tandem with the launch, Kiehl’s is encouraging its customers to recycle by giving every customer a complimentary Kiehl’s tote with every purchase of $100 or more, in any Kiehl’s store and at Kiehls.com, through April 27th. The company is also celebrates its own renewed Recycle and Be Rewarded! program, in which customers at Kiehl’s stores are rewarded with free product for bringing in their empty Kiehl’s bottles, tubes and jars for recycling. Since 2009, Kiehl’s has recycled more than 3,000,000 bottles. In order to further decrease the company’s environmental footprint, it is no longer issuing printed Recycle and be Rewarded! cards. Instead, customers’ recycle count will be tracked digitally.

In other product news, Kiehl’s has introduced a new skincare formula using quinoa husk extract, derived from discarded quinoa husks, meaning that what was once considered waste is now a unique skincare innovation. For the first time in a facial skincare product, quinoa husk extract has been formulated into the company’s new anti-aging overnight treatment, Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions™ Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate. The formula offers accelerated cell turnover to reveal refined texture, improved skin tone and softer, more radiant skin.

Quinoa Husk Extract is sustainably sourced from the protective outer shell of the Quinoa seed without chemical alteration and with minimal environmental impact. In this formula, its powerful exfoliating properties work to help accelerate surface skin’s nighttime cell turnover process to release dull surface skin.

In partnership with Bolivian suppliers and a foundation that sustainably source the quinoa husk from local farmers, and promote the conservation and responsible use of natural Bolivian resources, Kiehl’s use of this ingredient targets to provide  in 3 years socio-economic development for 250 Bolivian farms and their families as well as contribute to protect the environment. Kiehl’s is strongly supporting the project to restore and enrich the soils in order to prevent erosion through the planting of native legumes, bushes and herbaceous plants.

About Recycle Across America:
Recycle Across America® (RAA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which has developed the first ever society-wide standardized labeling system for recycling bins to help eliminate the public confusion surrounding recycling. The standardized labels are being used by some of the most notable companies in the world and are resulting in more than 50% increases in recyclables being collected — with significantly less trash being thrown in the recycling bins. As a result, the economics of processing recyclables becomes more viable and stable, thereby allowing more companies to commit to using recycled materials in their manufacturing. For this reason, RAA and the standardized labels have been identified as a world-changing solution by Ashoka Innovators for the Public, and have been referred to as “…one of the top environmental fixes taking root today,” by the New York Times.
