Giving Back to the Community
We contribute a portion of our net profits to a variety of organizations devoted to improving the health and well being of people and the planet that sustains us.
Current recipients include The Weil Foundation, Healthy Child Healthy World, SeaShare, The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program, The Center for Mind-Body Medicine and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
We contribute a substantial sum annually to offset the carbon releases associated with our product shipments to customers.
Working through NativeEnergy, Inc., we've supported a methane-to-energy project at a Pennsylvania farm, and helped turn the town of Greenburg, Kansas into a partially wind-powered community.
Unlike most carbon-offset efforts, our contribution covers the added climate-warming effects of jet emissions at high altitudes … an effect called "radiative forcing". This doubles the size of the contribution required to reflect the total warming effects of our shipments' carbon emissions.
Support for volunteer service days
We encourage and pay our team members to spend up to two days per year performing volunteer work in support of recognized local or national community service groups and their projects.
