World Centric gives a minimum of 25% of our profits to fund grassroots community organizations working at the intersection of extreme poverty and climate change. People experiencing extreme poverty often live in the places most impacted by climate change and are more vulnerable to natural disasters. Funding work that integrates climate solutions with socioeconomic development is a powerful way to impact both people and the planet.
World Centric produces high quality, plant-based compostable products that look great, perform well and contribute to reducing waste. We set aside at least 25% of the profit from the sale of our products to fund programs around the world helping provide basic needs and economic opportunities for communities facing extreme poverty, while also creating environmental benefit. This means that each time you purchase World Centric products, you are helping create a better world for all of us.
Since 2009, World Centric has been able to donate over $13M to fund hundreds of projects worldwide. Your purchases make this possible.
