Happy Earth Day
It seems like every day is now some kind of holiday (national pizza day anyone?!), but this upcoming Sunday is a special one for us at Hoot HQ.
To celebrate Earth Day 2018, Hoot is extremely excited and proud to announce we have officially joined 1% for the Planet, a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We are joining a network of businesses that each donate 1% of annual sales to environmental nonprofits creating positive change. Yes, 1% of sales, not profits. Which means every set of sheets you purchase allows us to send money and resources towards approved nonprofits making a difference.
We believe that minimizing your individual impact on the world is accomplished through a series of small choices made each day. But we also believe in using our company to support those that are dedicating their lives to large scale change. By joining 1% for the Planet, we are making a commitment to the world we love and ensuring that our influence goes beyond the bedroom.
Look out for upcoming announcements on the nonprofits we will be supporting this year, and feel free to email us if you have a cause you’re passionate about.

Earth Day Network
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. It’s now a global event, with more than 1 billion people in 192 countries taking part in political action and civic participation. Visit www.earthday.org to learn more.
