Forever grateful for all that Planet Earth has to offer, we understand the importance of helping to create a healthier planet. 

Through 1% for the Planet we try to offset our carbon footprint. Buddha Brands Co. takes coconuts from trees; we help plant new ones. We transport our products by boat overseas; we help restore the oceans. We quench the thirst for life; we help create clean drinking water. 

We care for the environment, and have made it our responsibility to give back. We hope you’re inspired to do the same. #Giveback

Trees for the Future

Trees are so much more than where we source our coconuts from. They are a home to animals, they create oxygen for us to breathe and they are essential to our global ecosystem. For every tree we take from, we want to plant another. 

(Information provided by Trees for the Future)

Trees for the Future is an organization dedicated to reforestation in rural communities in the developing world. They plant trees to help restore the environment, grow food and build a sustainable future, all while changing lives.

Over the years TREES has assisted thousands of communities in planting millions of trees in 19 countries including Ghana, which have restored life to land that was previously degraded or abandoned. For more information visit treesforthefuture.org
