1% For The Planet Member Bandit Wines Donates $110,000 To Environmental Nonprofits
Annual donation from exploration-ready wine brand will support nonprofits in need
HELENA, Calif., October 8, 2021 – Bandit Wines, the wine brand designed with exploration in mind, today announced its $110,000 donation to environmental nonprofits within the 1% for the Planet network. The donation follows Bandit Wines’ 2019 commitment to donating one percent of annual sales to the 1% for the Planet organization’s network of nonprofit partners – each banded together to preserve the beautiful American landscapes that keep Bandit fans exploring.
“Since we first introduced Bandit wines in lightweight, eco-minded Tetra Pak cartons in 2003, we’ve made protecting the environment our mission,” said Charles Bieler, co-founder of Bandit Wines. “Partnering with 1% for the Planet in 2019 helped us continue that cause, and we’re proud to help fund the environmental nonprofits that need our help.”
One percent of proceeds from Bandit Wines will continue to benefit organizations such as National Park Foundation and Protect Our Winters – both organizations close to the hearts of founders Charles Bieler and Joel Gott. Bieler and Gott aim to make the brand’s 2022 contribution even more impactful, with the help of Bandit’s fans.
Bandit fans wishing to support and further 1% for the Planet’s mission can purchase Bandit’s seven varietals. The wines – spanning Pinot Grigio to Cabernet Sauvignon – are packaged in convenient, easy-to-tote, easy-to-seal Tetra Pak® cartons depicting a unique American outdoor landscape.
