For the month of April, we’re going to donate $1 for every box of BumbleBars sold from our online store to The Nature Conservancy.
While caring for the earth is an every day, every week, every month responsibility, April reminds us that we need to appreciate this beautiful planet. The Nature Conservancy’s slogan “Protecting Nature. Preserving Life.” is just a glimpse into the beneficial work they’re doing for the world. As the leading conservation organization since their founding in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has:
- protected more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide — and operates more than 100 marine conservation projects globally.
- worked in all 50 states and more than 35 countries — protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs, from Australia to Alaska to Zambia.
- continually addressed threats to conservation involving climate change, fresh water, oceans, and conservation lands.

Growing in popularity in the past several years, the People, Profit, Planet concept of sustainable business has always been our foundation. All three concepts are intertwined – if one suffers, they all suffer.
BumbleBar supports People through an honest commitment to social and economic justice. Working hard to create a great environment for employees and develop meaningful relationships with suppliers and customers, BumbleBars success rests in its people. Most food companies farm out their production and become food marketers. BumbleBar believes in providing living wage jobs in our community of Spokane, WA. In addition, buying directly from farmer owned co-ops benefits communities from Ethiopia, Indonesia, Canada, and Honduras.
If we aren’t profitable, we can’t do our best work for the other two legs, people and the planet. Profit means that to maintain sustainability, BumbleBar needs to be profitable.
Planet means that businesses must consider the earth when creating business models. BumbleBar goes beyond what most people might expect from an organic food company by: constantly monitoring the waste stream, reducing scrap products so they don’t end up in the landfill, using eco-friendly paper products and biodegradable cleaning products, recycling shipping boxes to ship out BumbleBars to customers who order directly on the website, using Eco-Flow cornstarch packing peanuts, relying mostly on electronic documents and printing invoices on recycled paper.
