Helping our planet
Introducing The Love Beauty and Planet Project!
Are you a boat-rocker, action taker, or changemaker working to reduce carbon and working toward a more equitable climate future?
We have $100,000 in grants to invest in you & the wellbeing for our communities and our planet’s future!
Since launch, Love Beauty and Planet has taken its impact on our planet and communities very seriously. Our carbon tax program is one way we hold ourselves accountable – taxing ourselves $40 per carbon ton emitted from our production through to distribution at our customers. This year we’ll be using part of these funds to create The Love Beauty and Planet Project – a grants initiative awarding up to $100,000 to people and their projects that improve the wellbeing and health of our planet and the people on it by reducing carbon emissions, starting in the communities that need our help most.
Grant allocations may range from $1,000 up to $20,000, supporting projects that improve recycling rates, reduce plastic waste, and/or sequester carbon emissions with particular attention to projects serving marginalized and underserved communities. Communities of color and low-income communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change, and and to us, a more beautiful planet starts with one that is both clean and just.
Love Beauty and Planet has always been on a mission for #smallactsoflove that add up to make a difference for our planet - and that includes everyone on it.
But we can’t do it without you – so let’s get to work!
some changemakers we’ve worked with in the past
