AS PART OF 1% FOR THE PLANET, WE HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS THAT ACTIVELY PROMOTE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION SINCE 2021.
We know that in our current world there are constant new challenges, which impact our environment, nature or climate change. We are a part of a generation that takes on the responsibility to acknowledge these problems and actively work together to solve them. We believe that everyone can have a positive impact.
Therefore, we are proud to be part of the "1% for the Planet" initiative in which we pledge to donate 1% of our yearly revenue to a charitable organization that helps protect our environment.
SUPPORTED PROJECTS IN 2022
Aktion Deutschland Hilft
As a coalition of renowned German relief organizations, Aktion Deutschland Hilft supports people in need. In the event of major disasters and emergencies, humanitarian aid is provided. Expertise is coordinated together, and forces are efficiently combined. We have donated through Aktion Deutschland Hilft to the people in Ukraine.
ONE EARTH - ONE OCEAN E.V.
The environmental organization One Earth - One Ocean e.V. primarily engages in water and coastal protection and aims to rid waters worldwide of plastic waste, oil pollution, and other contaminants.
The "Maritime Waste Collection" collects plastic waste, which is then recycled or transformed back into oil. Furthermore, oeoo is involved in research, education, and documentation on the topic of "Marine Littering" - floating debris in the seas or inland waters.
Save the Children
Save the Children is the world's largest independent child rights organization and advocates (even politically) for the rights and interests of children in around 120 countries. Because all children have an unconditional right to freedom, health, education, and protection from violence, especially in emergencies or disasters.
We have directed our donation to the children in Ukraine.
The Succow Foundation, as a non-profit nature conservation foundation, advocates for the protection and preservation of all landscapes – from moors to deserts.
It focuses on protecting and developing wetlands, especially bogs and swamps. The Succow Foundation specifically works towards rewetting and preserving moor areas in the Baltic States because wet bogs can sequester significant amounts of CO2, contributing greatly to climate protection.
SeaTrees is a program by the non-profit organization Sustainable Surf and is dedicated to restoring coastal ecosystems, also known as Blue Carbon projects, to mitigate climate change.
This includes activities like the restoration of coral reefs and seagrass meadows or the planting of mangrove trees.
SUPPORTED PROJECTS IN 2021
Through surfing and our proximity to Portugal, we have a deep connection to the sea. The protection and preservation of the oceans have a very personal and, therefore, special relevance for us. The international non-profit organizationseashepherd has been doing vital work to protect our oceans' biodiversity and marine ecosystems for over 40 years.

From the guiding principle "Water for All - All for Water", a large international network has emerged - a network of people and organizations committed to providing access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation.
The non-profit organizationPrimaklima plants trees worldwide, protects our forests, and actively supports climate protection.
