Community Support - The Good Planet Company
- Created: Wednesday, 18 May 2011 13:53
Here at HAT we rely on the support from members, donors, foundations and businesses in the community to keep our programs vibrant and to protect land permanently. Our latest support comes from a local business that puts the environment first. We are pleased to announce that through the 1% For The Planet program through the Victoria Foundation, The Good Planet Company has chosen HAT for their 1%. We couldn't be more pleased to have such a wonderful group of people helping us reach our goals. We spoke briefly with The Good Planet Company to see what inspired them and what was new at their Fort Street location.
Why did you choose Habit Acquisition Trust?
When the decision was made to do 1% For The Planet, the Good Planet team members each nominated the organizations that we thought were making a difference. The list was actually quite short, because we all like the same organizations. The next step was a bit more challenging. After looking at the merits of each organization and discussing them we each chose our top 4.
HAT was an easy fit. We all chose environmental organizations that are making real difference in our community. We particularly like HAT's monitoring, education and habitat protection.
What issues are important to The Good Planet Co?
The Good Planet Company was founded on principles of treading lightly and helping our customers do the same. We appreciate that the experts at HAT contribute science to local decisions. We really like that HAT holds covenants that will protect habitats in perpetuity.
What inspired you to take part in the 1% For The Planet Program?
Being part of 1% For The Planet allows us to make a public commitment while expressing our values in a concrete way. It aligns us with other businesses that we strongly respect.
What is new and exciting at The Good Planet Co?
We continue to scour the world for products and innovations which can help our customers live with lighter footprints and make it easy to take. The most exciting of our new products is the Sienna Bed. This Natural Rubber Mattress and Foundation have many of the features of our other models while using fewer raw materials and is also easier on your budget. Since natural rubber mattresses last 20-30 years, the investment is a wise one. The Sienna is creating quite a stir.
We offer our thanks once again to The Good Planet Company, The Victoria Foundation and 1% For The Planet for helping to bring our community together. We encourage you to visit their websites to see what else they have been up to.
