But how you do business is as important – or more – than what business you are in. We don’t just make and sell stuff. We make and sell stuff the right way: kindly, responsibly, and thankfully. And that’s all the difference anyone can make.
So, whether you are relaxing after a giant Thanksgiving dinner, standing in a black-Friday line, or catching up on things while travelling back home, take a moment to read a little good news about how this one company is spreading sweetness in more ways than one.
We take care of our planet.
Our nonprofit giving includes longtime support of the Vermont River Conservancy
, a local nonprofit that has been conserving and preserving public access to Vermont’s waterways for nearly 25 years. We also write and speak about how climate change may complicate our ability to make maple syrup
, and how ordinary folks can care for their woods to help them be resilient
as temperatures rise. We avoid solvents and other toxins in our manufacturing processes, we dispose of our waste properly, and we use packaging materials that are almost exclusively recyclable and compostable. (This year, even the big red bows that will accompany all December purchases are made of paper!) We are in the process of converting the ancient factory lighting that we inherited to energy efficient fixtures, and will budget to convert from diesel to electrical air compression over the coming years.
So if you needed some good news, or if you are also kind, responsible and thankful in whatever you do and would appreciate some company, we’re with you! And we’re here to stay.
All the best, and a safe and happy holiday to you and yours,
-Nikki & Kate
