1% for the Planet
Since 2012, 49southphoto has donated 1% of its sales to local conservation and environmental local projects.
1% for the Planet is an alliance of companies that understand that it is necessary to protect the natural habitat because their gains or losses are directly related to its health and, at the same time, are aware of the social and environmental impact of their industries.
If you are the owner of a company (or have an appointment with your boss), please consider the possibility of becoming a member of this group with progressive social and environmental awareness.
Currently, more than half of the 300 million tons of plastic produced annually goes to disposable goods. The third part of this is packaging material, discarded after a single use. The serious environmental consequences of this are well known. That’s why we have decided to join the global movement of stop using of single-use plastics.
Our field guides are not longer packaged in plastic sleeves.
With this small action, we hope to contribute and add to the awareness of this big global concern.
Forest Stewardship Council
Since July 2011 our publications are printed on paper obtained from wood coming from certified forests by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC label ensures that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources.
Fundación Ushuaia Ambiental
We are a group of people who care about the place we live and decided to come together to improve local environmental conditions to make Ushuaia a healthier and cleaner place to live. Our intention is to join current initiatives in the community, and to also undertake new environmental challenges that we see. We hope to have a positive impact and look forward to building an alliance to create real and lasting change.
