3rdWhale LogoGreen mobile app developer 3rdWhale [1] will be the first mobile app developer to join 1% For the Planet [2], a growing global movement of 1,202 companies that donate 1% of their sales to a network of 1,781 environmental organizations worldwide.” And they want your help deciding where their money will go!

On June 24, the company launched a new version of their iPhone app — 3rdWhale Mobile [3] — that gives great tips on sustainable living and makes it very easy to find local green businesses around you.

That’s not all — 3rdWhale is going above and beyond by contributing more than the required minimum of 1% of download revenues: for every app sold, 25 cents will be divided among 5 environmental NGOs. That’s out of the $1.40 revenue the company makes after Apple takes its App Store cut.

3rdWhale has chosen the first two organizations they’ll donate to — Earthshare [4] and Natural Capital Solutions [5] — but want your help deciding the final three! Through tomorrow, Thursday July 2nd, they’ve opened the channels for you to submit nominations for more organizations. The top 10 will go up for votes from you, and after finishing on Friday July 10th, the winners will be announced shortly thereafter.

You can submit your nomination on Facebook [6] or via Twitter [7].

For more information about 3rdWhale or this initiative, you can contact 3rdWhale CEO Boyd Cohen [8] or call (778) 384-0733.
