What we eat and the way we eat it can have a really positive impact on the world. For example, a few years ago our family cut back on meat to help the environment. Ever since then I’ve tried to be more conscious about our food and the impact it has, not just on our family’s health but on the world at large. I know I’m not the only parent who thinks this way!
There are many companies out there that not only make great products but are very thoughtful about their impact on the world. Whether it’s creating products for a group of people in need, donating proceeds to a cause or engaging in fair trade practices, there are a lot of things food companies can do to “do good” and give back. October is Fair Trade Month, so I thought it would be fun to dig around and find some really great food companies doing really great things. Here are a few of those companies, both big and small, that you can feel really good about supporting! Have your food and do good, too!
