Avocado is transforming core values into climate action


Avocado Green Brands is continually raising the bar for environmental and social responsibility. Since becoming a 1% for the Planet member in 2017, they have donated to over 40 environmental partners through their yearly giving.

Through their 1% for the Planet commitment Avocado Green Brands has funded Kula Women’s Center in Rwanda, feeding over 74,000 people in New York City and removing over 15,000 pounds of plastic from oceans in 30 countries.

This year, Avocado Green Brands has honed in on four different impact areas – water advocacy,  equality, climate action and environmental conservation. Their goal has been to make as big of an impact as possible on a local and global level with their environmental partners:

Through their global SeaTrees program, Sustainable Surf helps restore kelp forests in California and beyond. When Avocado Green Brands found out that planting blue-carbon coastal ecosystems was one of the most effective ways to sequester carbon, they immediately partnered with Sustainable Surf as an environmental partner. Through their 1% for the Planet partnership, Avocado Green Brands is currently helping restore 20,000 SeaTrees in California and Hawaii.
