Surf Sleep Travel on board with 1% For The Planet global network
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 March, 2016 - Surf travel site Surf Sleep Travel is a platform designed to help surfers of all levels book their next surf trip. Since its inception, giving back to planet has been one of its key goals and following this theme, Surf Sleep Travel has now pledged to give 1% of its sales to the non-profit organisation 1% for the Planet.
Founder Nick Braithwaite said "This partnership will clearly show that our intent at Surfsleeptravel.com is to be a business focused on both sustainability and helping surf travellers across the world know that when they book with us, they will be helping the many non-profit organisations that are doing their part to help protect the environment under the 1% for the planet initiative.”
1% For The Planet is a global network of environmentally philanthropic members with more than 1200 companies and more than 3,300 non-profit organizations. Launched in 2001 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Matthews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies of Bozeman, its members include individuals such as singer Jack Johnson, entrepreneurs and corporations.
"We’ve always wanted to build a site that gave back to the environment, especially considering when how much our industry relies on its beauty and presence to thrive.”
Surf Sleep Travel launched in 2015 and is the booking site built for surfers. The team's focus is on making your next surf trip easily bookable in only a few clicks from your mobile or desktop, with all the surf information you need, no booking fees & top notch customer service. Thanks to this new agreement when customers now book they can do so knowing that they are helping to give back to the planet at the same time.
