“Peace love and Ice Cream”
Something that can taste amazing and be good for our planet? Sounds too good to be true, right? When Ben and Jerry’s started in1978, they had this vision. Founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield believed in creating a sustainable supply chain, and positive outcomes for “everyone connected to our business”.
This really does mean everyone.
From sourcing Fairtrade ingredients,to partnering with some incredible organisation fighting climate change, supporting the community is a passion that continues to this day. The Ben and Jerry foundation works in many different parts of the community.
Some of their fantastic work includes:
- Partnership with 350 Australia; an organisation dedicated to campaigning against environmentally destructive work that threatens our planet
- Running grant programs to help organisations that have ideas for change in the USA
- Proudly, publicly and actively supporting Marriage equality in Australia.
Having all their ingredients sourced Fairtrade.
- Being an active member of The Peace Alliance
And that’s not all.
Not only does their ice cream do good for our world and taste great, it’s also a certified B-Corp, an organisation that recognises companies that do outstanding work for the community, and of which Savingreen is a proud member.
Savingreen and Ben and Jerry’s share this passion for the planet, and we hope you can share with us in recognising their amazing contribution to building peace in all parts of our small world.
