Be Green Packaging LCC, in response to the disaster in Haiti, partnered with Direct Relief International vowing to match any donations made by its affiliates in the Santa Barbara community. All donations went toward medical aid and assistance for Haitian communities. Be Green also donated tree free, compostable plates to Direct Relief International headquarters to support Direct Relief’s employees in their commitment to helping Haiti.
Be Green’s efforts in providing assistance to Haiti is part of their larger commitment to their community and the planet. As a socially and environmentally responsible company, Be Green strives to support the people and organizations they do business with. As part of this commitment, Be Green Packaging is actively involved with Whole Planet Foundation (WPF). Whole Planet Foundation’s mission is to “empower the poor through microcredit in communities that supply [Whole Foods Market] stores with products, with a focus on the developing world.” In 2009, Be Green Packaging also became a founding member of WPF’s Change for Change fund, which strives to engage Whole Foods Market family members in empowering the poor through microcredit.
Be Green Packaging continually strives to follow a triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit. Their involvement with Direct Relief and Whole Planet Foundation are steps towards achieving this goal.
