Good luck bidders

1% For The Planet has created an online auction in an effort to have some fun, introduce member companies and the public to each other, fund growth and to help you get some holiday shopping out of the way while giving back to the planet.
One Percent for the Planet is a product of shared, deep appreciation and concern for the great outdoors. 1%FTP was founded by Yvon Chouinard of Patagaonia and Craig Matthews of Blue Ribbon Flies. Launched in 2002, 1%FTP is a non-profit organization that represents a large and ever growing community of businesses worldwide, who donate 1% of their annual sales to various non-profits worldwide, benefiting the natural environment. To date, their network consists of 767 member companies and over 1,500 environmental organizations.
Way Upstream encourages you to visit their auction page. You’ll find all the items, including some true rarities, a click away on the left hand side of their auction page in a categorized list. The auction is live through December 5th. Good luck bidders!

Thank you El Pescador for your post about our online auction!! I wanted to throw an idea out there too for your readers . . . . Craig's day trip is located under the Adventure Travel category of our auction, but I encourage anglers to check out the neighboring item there, the 5 night stay in a green home in Bozeman, MT offered by Mountain Home- Montana Vacation Rentals. Not only has this 1% member company been named "one of the world's best villa rental agencies in 2006 and 2007" by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, but you could potentially combine Craigs day trip with this 5 night stay in Bozeman, making a whole week of this exciting getaway. This green home is described as being wthin walking distance of downtown Bozeman, but does include the use of an electric car. Craig's shop is a 90 minute drive away- in Montana terms, nearby! : ) Good luck bidding everyone and thanks again for your support! Kate - kate@onepercentfortheplanet.org
