Dr. Bronner's Magic All-One Chocolate Bars
Everyone knows Dr. Bronner’s and it continues to amaze. This is why we love this company. Not only does Dr. Bronner’s build sustainable supply networks for its product lines but it is starting to create products based on the market need. In other words, the team at Dr. Bronner’s has been sourcing Regenerative Organic Certified Serendi palm from Ghana as palm oil is a key ingredient in many of its soaps. And since those farmers also grow cocoa, it made sense to provide them with a better market opportunity—instead of low prices earned by selling into the commodity market—by creating a line of chocolate bars. Dr. Bronner’s does chocolate and they are yummy.
Our Gorongosa Girls Run the World Medium Roast Coffee
Our Gorongosa was established with a multipronged rehabilitation approach: coffee-growing as a tool to restore a depleted rainforest in Mozambique’s Mount Gorongosa region and to provide new economic opportunities for the rural community. With that in mind, there are three products with 100% of proceeds meant for different projects: rainforest restoration, wildlife conservation and girls’ education. Through the $17 bag of Girls Run the World Coffee, the goal is to build 100 schools and enhance education for 20,000 girls.

Consider Pastures Pasture-Raised Eggs
Consider Pastures is a new egg line of Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs. Consider Pastures wants the marketplace to consider the role egg farms with small flocks and multilivestock farms can play in regenerative agriculture. To do this, the brand is engaging in three partnerships: American Farmland Trust through a 5-year, $250,000 commitment; Understanding Ag to improve techniques and soil testing methods to measure impact; and The Savory Institute’s Land to Market program to pioneer an egg-laying standard. The eggs are also Certified Humane, pasture raised and B Corp certified in addition to all the regenerative benefits.
Take Two Foods Barleymilk
Take Two Food's Barleymilk takes an innovative route to plant-based milk by using an upcycled ingredient. Utilizing spent grain from beer production, the company creates a second life for barley to make its Rejuvenated Barley ingredient for its milk. Because billions of pounds of spent grain are discarded annually, Take Two is on track to turn 500,000 pounds of upcycled grain into food. The company is in the process of becoming a B Corporation and Non-GMO Project Certified as well as undergoing a third party-led life-cycle assessment of its products and their impacts.
