WIB is looking forward to our next meeting with an awesome panel of women! We will be hearing from the following three professionals about sustainability in business. Join us on November 4th; it’s sure to be a treat!
1. Mountain Rose Herbs – Alyssa Lawless, Chief Sustainability Officer
Mountain Rose Herbs offers high quality organic bulk herbs, gourmet spices, loose leaf teas, essential oils, herbal extracts, and natural body care ingredients. Their extensive selection includes certified organic, fair trade, ethically wild harvested, & Kosher certified botanical products.
2. Glory Bee Foods – Shandy Buckley, Sustainability Supervisor
GloryBee started in the family garage of Dick and Pat Turanski in 1975 with a dream of providing natural, healthy ingredients for the people of their town. Dick describes those early days as “a simple family honey stand, farming honey in the backyard and processing it in the back of the garage–the deep freeze even doubled as the sales counter”. Over thirty years later, they are providing the highest quality organic and natural ingredients with the same spirit as those first years of business.
3. Good Company (Sustainability Consulting) – Kelly Hoell, Associate
Good Company is a sustainability consulting firm that helps clients measure, manage and market their sustainability performance. Their clients share their mission of making sustainability work and value both critical and creative thinking for their operations, their projects and their new ventures. Since 2001, Good Company has helped over seventy organizations in the public and private sectors improve their triple bottom line. Typically their customers are focused on long-term management of large resources and those that serve that mission. They are proud of the work their clients do and are proud of the work they do for them. They are humble enough to know that their work is never done and seek constantly to improve our methods to serve our mission
