MAYO Web Design and Marketing Services furthers its commitment to the environment and community by becoming a business member of 1% for the Planet.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire- MAYO Web Design and Marketing Services continues its commitment to the environment and the community by becoming a business member of 1% for the planet. The company is the first web design and marketing firm on the coast to become a Business Partner and pledge to donate 1% of annual sales directly to organization-approved environmental organizations and projects.
Today, only 3% of philanthropic donations go to the environment. The 1% for the Planet membership model seeks to change that by mobilizing critical philanthropic support to address the most pressing environmental issues of our time. To date, the organization has certified over $250 million in support of approved environmental nonprofits.
“We believe it’s possible to have a positive impact on both profits and the planet,” said Carrie Mayo, Founder and Creative Director of MAYO Web Design and Marketing Services. “Becoming a member of a reputable organization like 1% for the Planet ensures that our donations will be put to the best use for the environment. We also hope to inspire others in our community to consider membership so that we can increase support for 1% nonprofit partners in our community like Blue Ocean Society for Maine Conservation and Seacoast Science Center.
Becoming a business member of 1% for the Planet is another step in MAYO’s ongoing commitment to environmental and community causes. The company currently donates to organizations such as Cape Neddick Center for Wildlife, Pachamama.com, and the Sierra Club; it powers its website hosting services with renewable energy; and is currently in the process of getting his B Corp Certificate.
Committed to using business as a force for good, MAYO, alongside social and environmentally conscious organizations, helps educate and inspire the importance of protecting our planet in all of our communities. The company understands that each company has its own approach to sustainability. MAYO works with companies that are both new to sustainability and those that have been doing it for years, helping them leverage their efforts and talk about sustainability in an authentic way.
“Greenwashing is unfortunately a reality in today’s marketing industry,” Mayo said. “What attracted us to 1% for the Planet was their high level of accountability and the diversity of their partner organizations. Today, companies want to know that their donations are going to projects that make a difference. »
