The Ray was named an Environmental Partner with 1% for the Planet, an international organization that encourages sustainable, environmentally protective action through memberships and everyday choices. Environmental Partners work to advocate, conserve, steward, educate, and activate to create a healthy, vibrant future for our planet and include national and international nonprofits as well as Georgia-based and community-driven organizations. The announcement was made last April in celebration of Earth Day. 

Member organizations are 1% for the Planet-approved businesses with similar sustainable goals and contribute at least one percent of their annual revenue to causes that protect the environment. Participation in the Environmental Partner network positions The Ray to receive direct financial support from 1% for the Planet Members. “I am so excited that our team has been asked to join a global community of like-minded associates,” said Harriet Langford, founder of The Ray. “This partnership is a fantastic vehicle for The Ray to advance our goal of sustainable transportation.” See here for a complete list of Members.
