The 20% rule.
As part of our responsibility to care for the planet and give back some of the gifts that it has given us, Love Your Planet proudly donates 20% of our profits to the inspiring change-makers at Youth Against Plastic.
Every day that we wake up with clean air to breathe and good food to eat is a gift from the Earth, and as gift-giving cultures have known for millennia, the gift that is returned with love grows ever greater.
YAP are doing many wonderful things in this world, and running nature-connected leadership camps is one of their key projects.
"We host bush skills and leadership camps to connect young people with the planet that we are working to protect. We believe this important issue affects the youth more than anyone, and so, it is essential that our voices are heard in this crucial debate."
Participants return with the skills to lead their community in the fight against the destruction of our precious world. This is the generation that is best poised to take action, to protect the future of the planet for all of its living inhabitants.
As the founder of Love Your Planet, I joyfully give this 20%, and I am actively involved in mentoring the group, helping to facilitate their ideas and initiatives, supporting their actions in every way I can. I encourage you to take a closer look at their work at http://www.cel.org.au/yap/.

"It is young people who are best positioned to understand the importance of change and refuse the status quo."
"If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it."
