This month of November, we are donating 50% of our profits to FoodCycle to help make food poverty, loneliness and food waste a thing of the past in every community in the UK. 💚⁠ ⁠

⁠ At Planty, we take responsibility for balancing profit, people and purpose. We believe that consumers deserve better from businesses and governments – and that we all have a responsibility to make a more positive environmental and societal impact. We're not perfect, but we're always listening, learning and trying to do better.

⁠In spite of all the greenwashing and marketing noise nagging you to purchase stuff that you don’t need, you can still make more conscious choices that are good for you, good for the planet and even good for others too.

This year, we're glad to be able to continue supporting FoodCycle's network of local hubs and volunteers all over the country. The charity nourishes the hungry and lonely with delicious veggie meals and great conversations, using food which would otherwise go to waste.⁠ ⁠ ⁠

👊 __If you're someone who wants to make a positive environmental or social impact, you can make a difference with the food you eat and gifts you give this year. __

Feeling inspired to use your spare time for greater good? Why not consider volunteering? FoodCycle has plenty of ways you can get involved including cooking, hosting or making weekly phone calls. Find out more (including your local hub) on their website:⁠ ⁠⁠
