Carboy Winery Joins 1% for the Planet

By Beth Buehler

Colorado-based Carboy Winery pledged to donate 1% of all sales from its tasting rooms to support Zero Footprint + Restore Colorado campaign that promotes regenerative agriculture. By contributing part of the annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised over $300 million to support approved environmental partners around the globe. The nonprofit launched in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies.
