Westside Pest Control, proud supporter of 1% for the Planet
Westside Pest Control is incredibly proud to be a member of the 1% for the Planet global network. We have committed to donate 1% of total sales to approved nonprofit partners each year, with 100% of contributions going directly to the partners of our choosing. The Westside Pest Control team chose to join the 1% for the Planet movement as its nonprofit partners focus solely on finding solutions to some of the worst environmental issues facing the planet today.
The 1% for the Planet global network has donated more than $175 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, of all global philanthropy that occurs each year, only 3% goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses.
The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of fellow member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Together with our fellow members, we lead with purpose and commitment - characteristics that consumers support.

About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of our network.
We collaborate with individual and business members to identify environmental organizations that will make the greatest impact and align with your giving goals. We certify that every dollar contributed goes to a vetted, trusted nonprofit. Our members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to the environment, and our nonprofit partners are doing the hard work of restoring our planet for the future. Our goal is to significantly increase the overall amount of global dollars going to help protect the planet with the smartest donations possible.
The foundation of the 1% for the Planet network is the member-nonprofit partnership. Our business and individual members engage directly with approved nonprofit partners, providing financial donations, volunteer time, in-kind donations, and other shared-value collaborations. Thriving partnerships help deliver longer-term support and greater impact.
1% for the Planet was started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Mathews (founder of Blue Ribbon Flies). Both successful entrepreneurs, they recognized the power of collective action to protect the environment. Today, businesses and individuals continue to make the 1% for the Planet commitment, creating greater impact every year.
