1% for the Planet 🌏

We are proud to be business members of 1% for the Planet.

Our mission is to do more than sell the best gift hampers. To ensure that we always run as a purpose driven business, we decided to register our company name under “Good for Good Pty Ltd“.

We are members of 1% for the Planet. With donations of at least 1% of sales going towards environmental causes.

Each hamper sale supports charities and not-for-profits who actively care for the environment and have true impact; planting trees, protecting precious rainforests, caring for injured wildlife and protecting the oceans and its wonderous creatures.

About 1% for the Planet

1% for the Planet represents a global network of businesses, individuals and non-profit organizations tackling our planet’s most pressing environmental issues.

In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement.

“The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.”

— Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard in his book – Let my people go surfing.

Australian Seabird Rescue Inc. (ASR)

ASR was formed in 1992 when the late Lance Ferris and is licenced to rescue and rehabilitate Seabirds, Shorebirds, Sea Turtles and Sea Snakes in NSW. The head office is Located in Ballina, NSW (otherwise known as the Byron-Ballina Sea Turtle Hospital) and has 3 branches covering a wide range of the coastline.

Having witnessed first hand – a very sick and exhausted sea turtle on the beach near us, we called the rescue hotline.  The team and incredible crew of volunteers at ASR do such amazing job to care for all walks of sea life. We have been incredibly lucky to have taken part in turtle releases – seeing these eager turtles full of life and healthy after some much needed rest pampering.  These guys and girls hold a very special place in our hearts.

Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital (BBWH)

BBWH was created to provide much needed support and care to local injured wildlife.  The mobile veterinary clinic – fondly called ‘Matilda’, is fitted with specialised equipment and has an even more specialised and passionate crew. Unfortunately, injuries and sicknesses occur much more frequently than you would think.  Since opening in October 2020, the mobile clinic has admitted over 1000 wildlife patients (in less than 12 months).

The team have recently announced some exciting news, that Matilda will be moving to a new home – in the long loved Macadamia Castle in the hills behind Byron Bay. Running under Wildlife Recovery Australia (WRA) a joint venture of Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital and Odonata Foundation.
