How 4 natural brands are celebrating Pride month

This June, these four natural companies switched out standard packaging for rainbows–and are donating the proceeds to truly worthy organizations.

Pride month is here again, and a plethora of food, clothing and cosmetic brands are taking the opportunity to showcase their support for the LGBTQIA+ community. Consumers, as many in the natural products industry have already noted, are increasingly buying from brands that take a stand on issues that reflect their personal values and beliefs. Check out four Pride-ified natural products and the charities they promote below.


KIND Pride Bars

KIND's Pride Bars mark the first product installment of the company's Snack and Give Back project, a long-term initiative that aims to show kindness toward communities that haven't historically received their fair share of it. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, an organization that works to empower and protect homeless LGBTQIA+ youth.

The kombucha maker has pledged to financially support the training of three TrevorChat crisis counselors–a job that touches the lives of over 1500 young members of the community each year.

Natural skincare brand Youth to the People this month launched a Pride Edition of its popular plant-based cleanser in earth-friendly rainbow-covered packaging. 100% of profits will be donated to GLSEN, which promotes education and safety in schools surrounding LGBTQIA+ issues and students, respectively.

Bobo's founder Beryl Stafford stated that the brand is proud to align itself with The Center on Colfax because of the 1976-founded organization's varied efforts to support the Rocky Mountain region's LGBTQIA+ community. 30% of all sales will be donated to The Center.
