Carbon Offset Holiday for Sustainability

We celebrate a carbon offset holiday every year and recognize the damage being caused to our environment by human activities and try to raise awareness about mitigating our carbon footprint. For this purpose, we conduct a thorough audit of the company’s carbon emissions and offset them by investing in renewable energy projects.

We also encourage our employees to participate in environmental activities like tree-planting drives and beach clean-ups. Our carbon offset holiday is a reminder that sustainability is an integral part of our company’s culture and we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

Celebrating Differently-Abled Employees

This holiday is a special one for us in our company and allows us to celebrate the contribution that our differently-abled employees make to enable our success. One of the key activities we do on this day is to create awareness of disabilities in the workplace and communities and also acknowledge our employees on social media.

World Coconut Day Recipe Sharing

We’re a sourcing and distribution company for raw and natural ingredients, so we’re obviously nuts for one of our biggest ingredients—coconuts. That’s why we celebrate World Coconut Day on September 2nd.

We’re a remote business with employees around the world, so this is how we’re going “Coco-loco” (that’s the theme) this year!

  •  Each employee has to create a recipe using coconut as an ingredient, but the dish has to be crazy or unexpected.
  •  Each recipe goes into a “virtual bag”, and each person picks a recipe and has to cook it with their family and tell us how it tasted.

2024 will be Cocococktails!

World Environment Day Eco-Activities

We celebrate World Environment Day every year on June 5th. This day is dedicated to raising awareness and taking action toward protecting our planet and its natural resources. Our team comes together to organize various eco-friendly activities, such as planting trees, cleaning up local parks and beaches, and promoting sustainable practices.

We also encourage our readers to participate in these activities and share their own ideas for reducing their carbon footprint. By celebrating World Environment Day, we hope to inspire others to join us in preserving our beautiful planet for future generations.
