A Message about 1% for the Planet from OXO President Larry Witt

Words OXO

Giving back starts at home. Learn how we’re committing to make everyday better for the planet — the home we all share.

To our OXO family,

At OXO, we strive to make the everyday better, every day. For the last 30 years, we’ve applied that ethos to improve life every day around the home with thoughtfully designed products that make everyday tasks like cooking, cleaning and organizing simpler and easier — in a word, better.

In many ways, home has always been the center of OXO’s world. These days, home is more important than ever.

We also think a lot about the home we all share — the planet.

To this end, we’re partnering with 1% For the Planet, a global community of brands giving back to environmental nonprofits that drive positive impact. 

With this partnership, we’re committed to donating 1% of our annual sales to a thoughtfully selected group of nonprofits that champion environmental causes. We’re providing millions of dollars each year in funding and resources to these groups, which focus on one or more of three key areas:

  • Supporting better, more sustainable food systems.
  • Championing environmental issues that promote cleaner air, land and water.
  • Funding environmental education, providing access and opportunity for future generations to become environmental advocates and continue to affect positive change.

At home, there’s always work to be done, and that’s how we’re approaching our own environmental impact. Beyond giving to groups doing good for the planet, we’re investigating all facets of our business through a more environmentally responsible lens and challenging ourselves to take action.

We’re grateful for our past 30 years, and for the role you’ve allowed us to play in your home. We’re looking forward to making the everyday better for decades to come — for the home, and for our planet — the home we all share. We hope that you’ll join us on this important journey.

Thank you,

Larry Witt, President of OXO
