leaders in sustainability at natural products expo west 2018
Last week some of the Kind Marketing team attended the Natural Products Expo West show. It’s hard to go to any trade show and not marvel and even complain about the mountains of waste created from these shows, especially when the show is focused on natural products and sustainability… But we are not going to go down that path so it doesn’t turn into our standing up on a soap box.
What we are going to do is say hats off to Expo West for acknowledging and awarding some of the companies that are making great efforts in how they participate at the show, how they are packaging their products and even how they are giving back to the planet via their operations!
We are super proud to say that one of our clients made this list!
Albert Straus, founder of Straus Family Creamery, was recognized for his leadership in developing a long-term vision for carbon-positive, organic dairy farming, including the first full-scale electric truck powered by cow manure.
Another of our favorites on this list and in the same Outstanding Influencer Award category was Clif Bar & Co. for its wide-ranging climate leadership, and particularly, for endowing the first domestic land-grant university chairs for organic research and providing renewable energy consulting to supply chain partners.
