In celebration of Saratoga Sports Massage’s fifth year anniversary, owner Dr. Matt Smith, Chiropractor, is excited to join the growing network of 1% for the Planet member businesses. Member companies pledge to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“Our location next to the beautiful Spa State Park has made me appreciate the value of our natural resources and has encouraged me to do my part to protect them. I hope that our commitment to the environment will encourage more businesses to stand up for the planet,” says Dr. Smith.
1% for the Planet members have given more than $150 million back to the planet since 2002. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. “The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We're excited to welcome Saratoga Sports Massage to our global network," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
