1% For The Planet

1% For The Planet

As trail runners, we love our natural environment and believe that it is a space worth protecting, to ensure it is there for many future generations to enjoy.

One way we aim to take responsibility is by being a 1% For The Planet Business Member.

All together for the planet

What is 1% For The Planet?

1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions.

1% For The Planet advises business members on strategies for giving, certifies our donations, and amplifies the impact of environmental conservation through their network of partner organisations.

How Does It Work?

As a 1% For The Planet Business Member, Those Guys Events (organisers of The SEQ Trail Running Series) commits to donate the equivalent of 1% of our gross sales to approved environmental non-profit organisations, every year. This is before costs and regardless of profit.

Every time you buy a race entry with us, we will donate 1% of your purchase to environmental charities.

Since joining 1% for the Planet, Those Guys Events and our retail business, The Trail Co., have donated well over $70,000 to a variety of great causes including:

Bush Heritage Australia 

Australian Conservation Foundation

The Climate Council of Australia

WWF Australia

The Wilderness Society Ltd

Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital

Landcare Australia

ReForest Now

and more!

Check out the incredible work they all do at the links above.

When you donate to 1% For The Planet you're investing in the systems that generate more environmental giving

How You Can Help

By running an event by Those Guys Events, you’re supporting us and our environmental giving. However, the urgent issues facing our planet need so much more than they’re currently receiving. 1% For The Planet states that, currently, only 3% of philanthropy goes toward environmental giving.

While there are many ways to give back, 1% for the Planet provides two membership programs: business membership and individual membership, which garner additional value and opportunity to those committed to supporting our planet.

Through business and individual memberships, 1% For The Planet’s goal is to significantly increase the overall amount of global dollars going towards protecting the planet, with the smartest donations possible.

By being a 1% For The Planet Business Member, Those Guys Events stands by this intention for change.
