What is your company doing to Celebrate the Earth this month?
Alexia Celebrates Arbor day each year during Earth Month, and since 2009 volunteers from our team have partnered with the City of Kennewick, WA to plant trees in local parks. We also have a corporate challenge to improve sustainability where project teams from across our organization submit for consideration projects that improve our sustainability as an organization. The most impactful projects will be recognized in our corporate 2017 Sustainability Awards, held in late April.
Why do you feel it’s important to be an Earth Friendly company?
Our stewardship of the earth’s resources begins at the farm and continues through every step we take. We work day-to-day and field-to-field with all farmers who grow our vegetables and ingredients, to ensure responsible farming practices. Our extra effort is the natural result of our love of food, our belief that food preparation should preserve and protect our natural resources, and our desire to help make the world a better place for future generations.
