Eco-Planet Cookies Available in Canada

Eco-Planet’s mission is to make great-tasting organic cookies that not only delight kids’ fussy palates, but also inspire them to become environmental stewards of the highest degree. Because they believe that global action starts at home, their cookies are baked in their own organic certified bakery, where, with the support of Renewable Choice Energy, they support wind energy by off-setting all fossil fuel usage with non-polluting wind power. Eco-Planet also donates a portion of their proceeds to non-profit organizations committed to protecting our fragile ecosystem, including 1% For The Planet.

Planet Foods Creates Employee Recycling Program

Planet Foods believes strongly in recycling & reducing waste. When their employees voiced their concern about the City of Calgary not offering a city wide plastics recycling program to the public, Planet Foods offered a soloution. Planet Foods now offers its Calgary employees the opportunity to recycle their plastics. Each Calgary employee is encouraged to bring in their plastics to work. A bin is provided to hold the plastics for the monthly pick-up arranged with Plastic Possibilities.
