Celebrating 10 Years of Support for 1% For the Planet

Silver Sage  is celebrating 10 years of membership with 1% For the Planet, and has donated more than $116,000 to area environmental groups since January 2007 through this partnership.

By participating in the 1% For The Planet program, member businesses commit to donate one percent of their sales directly to the sustainability-oriented nonprofit(s) of their choosing, after 1% For The Planet has carefully vetted each nonprofit for track record, credibility and impact.

“More than ever, it’s important that we do what we can to protect the environment,” said Dr. Andrew Pasternak from Silver Sage Center for Family Medicine. “Donating to local environmental charities helps us make sure our patients can experience Mother Nature, which in turn helps their own health. It’s essential that we promote conservation in the Reno/Tahoe area.”

Organizations that have benefited from Silver Sage’s partnership include: Headwaters Science Institute, Truckee River Watershed Council, League to Save Lake Tahoe, Truckee Donner Land Trust, Lahontan Audubon Society, Tahoe Institute for Natural Sciences, Animal Ark, Center for Biologic Diversity, TAMBA, Peregrine Fund, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Great Basin Bird Observatory, Reno Bike Project, Poedunk, and Truckee Trails Foundation.
