Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsFrontier Co-op has a long tradition of giving back. From our earliest years, we trained farmers around the world to grow organically to protect themselves and the environment from toxic chemicals. As we grew, we created charitable funds for each of our three brands (see below) to implement our social giving.
More than half of our giving goes directly to improving life in the communities that grow our products through our Well Earth sourcing program. These sourcing partners are often poor, isolated communities where we can help with basics like clean water, roads, schools and medical care.
We meet personally with growers whenever possible and create partnerships built upon mutual respect for quality botanicals and sound social and environmental practices. Our Well Earth sustainable sourcing program is built on the expertise we've gained from over three decades of experience buying botanicals from all over the world. The direct relationships of Well Earth allow us to develop effective and meaningful social giving projects for our grower communities.
We're committed to the health and welfare of the environment and all the people involved with producing and consuming our botanical products.
