“Corporations have not just an opportunity but a responsibility to do something for the social good,” says Amy Barnouw, co-founder and CEO of Planet Fuel.
The organic juice company focuses on feeding healthy bodies and a healthy planet with its teen- and tween-targeted brand and charitable arm that taps a teen advisory board to guide programs and grants. The Planet Fuel Charitable Fund is backed by private donors and 5 percent of sales.
“You look around and mission-driven businesses are everywhere,” Barnouw said. “And frankly, the millennials and the teens and tweens are really expecting it at this point.”
