Award-winning shower startup Nebia strengthens its environmental commitment
Seven years ago, Nebia was launched with a mission to revolutionize the way people interact with water. Their goal was to create a better shower experience while saving as much water as possible. However, Nebia’s long-term vision has always been to build a business that has a net positive impact on the planet. By joining 1% for the Planet and dedicating 1% of their annual sales to supporting non-profit environmental organizations, they are one step closer to this reality.
In the words of the co-founder of Nebia Philippe Winter“Since we started Nebia, the environmental crisis has only gotten worse. In our home state, California severe droughts have become commonplace and the long-term outlook is daunting. We need more investment in environmental causes and innovations. This is why we are taking our commitment further by joining 1% for the Planet. “
Nebia has always sought to Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia and 1% for the Planet, as a huge source of inspiration. From the beginnings of Nebia, it was a dream to join Chouinard’s organization and join a network of companies having a real and tangible impact for a better future. Today, Nebia is thrilled to make that dream come true by becoming a member of 1% for the Planet.
“We are delighted to welcome Nebia to our global movement,” says kate williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. “Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and only 5% of that comes from corporations. The planet needs more support than this, and our growing network of corporate members is doing its valuable part. to increase donations and support on-field results.”
To date, Nebia customers have saved over 450 million gallons of water and Nebia products can be found in over 100,000 homes. As their business grows, Nebia is committed to continuing to seek ways to further multiply its positive impact on the planet and joining 1% for the Planet is an exciting next step.
