The mercury threat in tuna and salmon, GMOs, herbicides, and mystery fast-food meats have helped many American consumers become more aware of the dangers our environment is currently facing at the hands of big corporations.
But, many big businesses are greening up to help our planet. Here are some companies that are doing their part, and it’s always good to support them:
Patagonia clothing company has produced a revolutionary recycled fabric and donates 1% of their sales to help grassroots companies worldwide.
Stonyfield Farms is known for their organic food. Now a large company, they still hold on to small company values while maintaining quality organic products and by using recycled cups and packaging.
Seventh Generation has come out with a new line of chlorine-dioxin free disposable diapers. The company proudly defends their consideration of their impact on the well being of the next seven generations.
Toyota is a leader in emission controls and eco-friendly manufacturing facilities to protect the environment.
Working Assets is a phone company with rates lower than most major phone companies, and 1% of your mobile charges goes to charities and to the environment.
Green Mountain coffee roasters supports small growers and farms. Sold under Green Mountain, Wild Oats, and Newman’s Own Organics, they support organic growers.
Home Depot has pledged to buy Forestry Stewardship Council certified lumber and won’t purchase any wood products from the ten regions designated as vulnerable to over-exploitation by the World Wildlife Fund.
Newman’s Own Organics donates all profits to charity and is coming out with a line of organic pet foods.
Coast Books, the Canadian Publisher of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books, published her later books on 100% recycled paper, saving an estimated 30,000 trees.
Pretty cool, huh.
Let’s encourage more companies to protect the environment while selling their wares. Support them, if you can, by buying their products.
