Why we support 1% for the Planet and how you could too

Why we support 1% for the Planet and how you could too

Did you that know at Buddha Brands, we use simple ingredients and innovative branding? And that we make our products using sustainable business practices?

Our priorities go beyond making healthier snacks and beverages. Our commitment extends to the environment.

We are proud of “The Coconut Initiative”, a global community that connects people through the love of coconuts and conservation efforts.

Inspired by our favourite fruit, the mini but mighty coconut, we’re working to make the world a healthier and more sustainable place, one purchase at a time.

As members of 1% for the Planet, Buddha Brands donates 1% of sales to environmental and sustainable charities that are working to restore, protect, and advocate for our home, Planet Earth.

What is 1% for the Planet?

To sum up their hard work in just a few words, 1% for the Planet is a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals. This network works together to help the planet stay healthy. With the collective power (including Buddha Brands, of course!), all involved work to help drive change in six core focus areas: Climate, Food, Land, Pollution, Water and Wildlife.

Why is this so important?

At Buddha Brands, we believe sustainability is key. This is why we are always looking for innovative ways to reduce waste and use up every part of our ethically sourced coconuts.

We believe that with the overwhelming threats our planet is facing, we must ensure we are doing our part to create a positive change.

Can you believe only 3% of philanthropy in North America goes to environmental causes?

This give us more of an incentive to band together as a global community to support long term environmental solutions.
