Atlanta, Georgia, August 2018 — The Offroader Supply Co.™ joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate a minimum of 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“We couldn’t be any more excited to join a community of like-minded individuals who share a burning desire to preserve and protect our planet for generations to come.” Said Kyle Hyman, Founder of The Offroader Supply Co.™
Members of 1% For The Planet commit to supporting approved environmental nonprofit partners by donating the equivalent of 1% of sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind, and approved advertising contributions. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. There are thousands of approved nonprofits worldwide.

“We are thrilled to welcome The Offroader Supply Co.™ to our global network,” said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. “Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. We need more business like The Offroader Supply Co.™ to do its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes.”
