Who is the Earth Group?
Founded in 2005, the Earth Group is comprised of Earth Water, Earth Coffee, and Earth Tea. It is Earth Water’s mandate to give 100% of our net profits to the United Nations World Food Programme to provide life essentials to some of the world’s poorest people. Children die of hunger every day. Earth Group commits 100% of its net profits to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to fight hunger worldwide through its school meals programmes. In order to get our money to where it is most needed, as effectively and efficiently as possible, Earth Group has partnered with WFP, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. WFP brings food to an average of 90 million people in more than 70 countries each year. WFP has the global reach, tools and expert staff to ensure the funds received from Earth Group directly benefit those who need it most. It costs WFP just 25 cents to give a child a meal at school – helping them grow and learn and develop their full potential. The Earth Group is currently active in North America & Western Europe (Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Holland, Portugal, Switzerland).
The United Nations World Food Programme?
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Each year, on average, WFP feeds more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries. WFP possesses the infrastructure, personnel and expertise to ensure the Earth Groups donations directly benefit those who need it most – primarily school children.
Where is Earth Water sourced?
Worldwide, Earth Water works with seven bottling facilities. Thanks to our ability to draw product from facilities near our markets, we’re able to decrease our carbon footprint, by not having to ship water in large distance, and we are also able to diminish costs associated with shipping water, which in turn allows us to donate more funds to WFP. Earth Water bottles with ultra premium spring sources.
Where is Earth Coffee sourced?
Earth Coffee is all certified organic and sourced from fairly traded farms. The coffee is roasted in Vancouver, British Columbia, and comes from several areas of the world, including Indonesia, Ethiopia, and Guatemala.
Where is Earth Tea sourced?
Earth Tea is a certified organic, herbal tea, grown in Alberta, Canada. We’re partnered with Chickadee Farms in Central Alberta. For decades, Chickadee has been a family owned farm growing wild crafted, herbal teas. The farm is entirely isolated from any industry, and not accessible by vehicle. All herbs are hand picked and dried on site.
