As our Flux Manifesto declares: “we are an ecosystem of impact”. It’s the driving force behind our decisions and actions. Our ecosystem of impact is far reaching, and includes not only improving the lives of the people that make Flux what it is, but also our shared responsibility to conserve and where necessary restore our natural world.
It is for this reason that Flux has partnered with 1% for the Planet, a global movement that ensures its members give directly to highly vetted environmental nonprofit organisations. By being a member, it means that Flux donates 1% of our sales to a chosen 1% for the Planet nonprofit organisation at the end of every financial year. Consider it a self-imposed tax, for the betterment of our planet.
