Annie’s has a long history of giving back to local communities, whether through grants, donations or volunteer hours. In Good Company is a week-long community service trip, developed by Clif Bar & Company, which focuses on making a positive change for people and places in need. Just this past October, we sent our marketing coordinator Staci to Louisiana along with employees of other like-minded companies like Clif Bar, Eileen Fisher, Quality Bicycle Products, Seventh Generation, and Timberland. They placed over 4,000 Gulf Saver Bags: the biggest planting to date, that will translate into restoring 20 acres of coastline. Click here to read Staci’s account of the trip.
In fall of 2012 in partnership with In Good Company, Annie’s will send three employees to the South Bronx to build urban gardens in the local community, and one employee to the gulf coast to restore 5 acres of wetlands with the leadership of Restore the Earth Foundation and Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries.
