Thankful for our partnerships...
When starting a business, it’s vital to determine which organizations to partner with. These affiliations shape the future of your organization and emphasize your priorities. Mindful Proteins has chosen to join the following organizations:
1% for the Planet –1% for the Planet was founded on the model of our business membership program: responsible businesses giving back to environmental partners to create a healthier planet. Businesses donate 1% of their gross sales directly to environmental partners. Mindful Proteins has been a member of 1% for the Planet since 2019 and has donated thousands of dollars during that time.
The Good Food Guild – Guild Members are united in their commitment to meet or exceed the Good Food Foundation Standards for tasty, authentic, and responsible food. Hailing from nearly all 50 states and D.C., the Good Food Guild is an economic force shaping the American food culture for the better. Mindful Proteins joined the Guild in 2020.
2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals – The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries—developed and developing—in a global partnership. The goals recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go together with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth, all while tackling climate change and working to preserve oceans and forests. Specifically, Mindful Proteins aligns with goals 2 (zero hunger), 3 (good health and well-being), 5 (gender equality), 8 (decent work and economic growth), 12 (responsible consumption and production), and 13 (climate action).
Benefit Corporation for Good – Becoming a benefit corporation (or benefit company) is a legal designation in your state and requires you to make business decisions considering the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit. It’s about planting a stake in the ground that puts social and environmental impact on the same level with profit. Mindful Proteins has been a certified Benefit Corporation for Good company since 2019.
Mindful Proteins is proud to partner with these groups and we look forward to growing our partnerships with other similarly aligned organizations.
