1% for the Planet, a global network of businesses that invest at least 1% of their sales in organizations focused on sustainability, announced that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) restaurants The Deck and Couloir Restaurant and Bar have joined the network.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Jackson Hole Mountain Resort join 1% for the Planet with their signature restaurants Couloir and The Deck,” said 1% CEO, Terry Kellogg. “Membership in 1% for the Planet will move their sustainability agenda forward in a highly visible and tangible way and we sincerely hope that JHMR’s example will inspire many more organizations within the ski industry and beyond to follow suit.”

Couloir and the Deck have reopened for the summer and support from the restaurants will initially be allocated to Vertical Harvest, one of the most innovative architectural-agricultural-sustainable projects in the country that consists of a state of-the-art, three-story, 13,500-square-foot hydroponic farm that will employ workers with developmental disabilities year-round. The project is set for construction in Jackson Hole in 2013.
