Celebrating Earth Day with Sustainability
Posted on April 22, 2016.
Sustainability is a journey towards a better future for the next generation. It’s a journey that GloryBee has been on for 41 years.
We started reporting on our sustainable actions in 2009 to the Sustainable Food Trade Association. In 2013, we began publishing our own public sustainability report for our customers and community members to show our dedication to improving our processes to minimize our footprint.
As a company with a commitment to transparency and sustainability, we would like to give you a peek at our newest sustainability report for Earth Day 2016. Keep an eye out for the entire report... coming soon!
A few highlights from 2015:
- We increased our Fair Trade certified products by 61% and our Organic products by 31%
- We used 8% less water per pound of product produced than the year before. This is the second year in a row of decreasing water used per pound!
- We composted and recycled more; 94% of our waste was diverted from the landfill
- Our employees volunteered over 238 paid hours if their time for our community
