We are excited to share a significant milestone in the Original Duckhead journey – we’re certified members of 1% for the Planet. An international organisation whose members contribute at least one percent of their annual revenue to environmental causes to protect the environment.

This decision to join this impactful global movement represents a pivotal step in our ongoing commitment to responsible business practices and environmental stewardship. 

The Essence of Original Duckhead:

At the heart of Original Duckhead lies a deep-rooted commitment to quality craftsmanship, durability, and timeless style. As we continue to evolve, we recognize the importance of integrating sustainability into our ethos. Our umbrellas have long been more than just functional accessories; they are a representation of the values we hold dear.

Aligning with 1% for the Planet:

1% for the Planet is a global network that brings together businesses, individuals, and environmental organisations in a collective effort to address pressing environmental issues. By committing to contribute 1% of our annual revenue to approved environmental nonprofits, we are actively participating in a movement that transcends individual efforts and fosters meaningful change.

Addressing Global Environmental Challenges:

The decision to join 1% for the Planet stems from our acknowledgment of the urgent environmental challenges our planet faces. From climate change to biodiversity loss, these issues demand collective action. By directing a portion of our sales to environmental causes, we aim to support projects that address these challenges head-on.

A Portfolio of Impactful Initiatives:

As a member of 1% for the Planet, we now have the opportunity to support a diverse range of environmental initiatives. These projects span areas such as conservation, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and more. Our commitment is not only financial but also strategic, as we carefully select projects that align with our values and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Transparency and Accountability:

We understand that transparency is crucial in building trust with our community. Our decision to join 1% for the Planet reflects our commitment to openness and accountability. By participating in this program, we ensure that a measurable portion of our revenue goes directly to vetted environmental organisations, fostering transparency in our sustainability efforts.

Inspiring Change in the Industry:

Our hope is that our affiliation with 1% for the Planet serves as an inspiration for others in the industry. By demonstrating that sustainable business practices can be integrated seamlessly into operations, we aim to contribute to a broader shift towards environmentally conscious decision-making.


In joining 1% for the Planet, Original Duckhead Umbrella takes a deliberate step towards a more sustainable future. We are excited about the positive impact this decision can have on the environment and the broader community. As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape, we invite you to join us on this journey towards a greener, more sustainable world.
