It’s an honor to share that Saltwater Classroom has been selected to join 1% for the Planet as an Environmental Partner. By joining as a nonprofit organization, Saltwater Classroom is now connected to the thousands of businesses worldwide — and nearly 200 here in Maine — who have taken the significant step of pledging 1% of their sales to environmental and sustainable causes.

Founded by Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard in 2003, 1% for the Planet is a bar-setting example of choices that businesses can make to commit to sustainable action for our planet. Saltwater Classroom is eager to grow our network of supporters who share the dream of furthering ocean education and together, fostering the next generation of ocean stewards.
