Yoga Democracy is excited to announce that we have joined the 1% For The Planet movement which means that one percent of our proceeds go to bettering our world. Our membership is one more step towards the commitment we made from day one to support work in the areas of sustainability and environmental conservation. We will continue to support the work of Southwest Animal Wildlife in Scottsdale, Arizona with the endangered Mexican Gray Wolf and earlier this year donated a portion of our holiday sales to the Sierra Club.
1% for the Planet is a nonprofit organization that connects dollars with doers by linking businesses that contribute at least one percent of annual sales with high-impact environmental nonprofits. 1% For The Planet, a third-party verifier, ensures the business does as promised and the funds are truly used for environmental causes.

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of
