If you're a fan and friend of Nature’s Path, you probably know we've spent the last 30 years loving the planet and the people on it through our tasty, organic food. But we're not the only ones showing love for food, people and the planet, so we thought we’d share seven of our favourite projects doing good for these worthy causes.
1% For the Planet

Why we love ‘em: In ten years this organization has inspired more than 1,200 businesses to give more than $100 million back to “blue” or, this planet we call home. 1% members contribute a percentage of sales to non-profit environmental projects – and they’re making a big difference. (EnviroKidz is a 1% member!)
