San Diego Socialights
Part of the SociaLights family mission is to be aware of the impact we make on this planet. We love that our jobs (and let's be real, our travels) take us to so many unique places with backdrops, often created by mother nature, that we get to enjoy. We want those backdrops to stay beautiful and help do our part to make sure they do. Over the years we've done a lot of things to see to it that our footprints as individuals, and as a team, were kept low. From the obvious - recycling, buying mostly used home goods/clothes, creating our own gardens, composting etc. To the not obvious - Ryan's been dumpster diving at grocery stores to raise food waste awareness recently. All these efforts took a turn for the better when we found an organization that joins businesses that have the same motivations.... and so we joined 1% for the Planet. We couldn't be more proud we did. Started by Yvon Chounaird (Patagonia), 1% for the Planet's mission is to unite businesses across the world to band together to keep this planet blue. Each year we commit to giving a certain amount of our time to volunteer for local enviremental organizations and 1% of our profits to a non profit of our choice. This year we've chosen the incredible 1to1 Movement. A local San Diego non profit dedicated to education and awareness. In addition to being a member of 1% we're also proud to have partnered with organizations like The Ronald McDonald House of San Diego to help them raise funds at their annual gala.
