At LifeSource our sustainability program is designed to support the well-being of people, our community and our planet.

Working hard to use our planet’s resources more wisely and take better care of people is very important to us.

We hope to be a role model, showing that it is possible to run business that is actively engaged in the community, takes good care of the planet, its employees, and its customers and is also fiscally successful.

To help us achieve these goals we created a Sustainability Coordinator position in 2008 and joined the Sustainable Food Trade Association. By joining this organization we committed to continuous improvement and transparency around practices in key areas.

At this point we also began tracking and reporting annually about our performance in the 11 action categories: organic land use, water use, distribution and sourcing, energy, climate change and emissions, solid waste reduction, packaging and marketing materials, labor, animal care, sustainability education, governance and community engagement.

We all take care of each other.

– Thank You!

Here are a few of the things we are pleased to have accomplished:

People

We believe in taking care of people: we take care of our staff, staff takes care of our customers, customers take care of us, we all take care of each other.

Community

Planet

We have increased our selection and you have increased your purchases of organic foods by $400,000 (or by 4%) this year, thereby reducing the amount of petro-chemicals finding their way into our soil, water and air—and consequently improving the health of the soil, the water and the air upon which all of us who live here on Earth depend.
