Our Partnership With 1% for the Planet

June 18, 2020


With our harbor-side home in Boston’s seaport, we have a front row seat to both the good and the bad of urban development. While we love our ever-growing neighborhood and the rest of our bustling city, we recognize the environmental cost that can come with both city life and growth. That’s why we partnered with 1% for the Planet, because as our cities continue to develop, we want to make sure it’s toward a sustainable end. We have an immense amount of gratitude for our city roots and we hope future generations can have the same.

1% of revenue from all City Roots sales- whether draft or package- will be donated to nonprofit organizations that focus directly on creating greener, healthier, and more sustainable cities. While much of our giving will be focused on our home city of Boston, this is a collective issue and we hope to have a real impact in cities across the United States.

Since their inception in 2002, 1% for the Planet has helped to direct hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental nonprofits around the world. However, they didn’t do it alone. 1% for the Planet is a network of like-minded individuals, businesses, donors and nonprofit organizations working together toward a common goal: protecting the future of our planet.
