Manufacturing As A Force For Good
Working with Mid Hudson Works
Here at Urban Leaf we believe in using business as a force for good. In every element of our business, we look for ways to tread lightly on the planet, improve the health and wellness of our customers and those around us, and drive positive social change where we can.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with a non-profit organization called Mid Hudson Works for the assembly and manufacture of the World’s Smallest Garden.
What we love about this organization (and we hope you will too) is:
- They provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities. They currently employ 17 people, many of whom would struggle to find work elsewhere
- They’re located in New York State, only ~1.5hrs from our office and fulfillment center, so we can minimize our transport related carbon emissions. Although global GHG emissions from transport are only a fraction of those caused by food production, they’re still important to us.
- If you’d like to learn more about who we are and what we do please join the mailing list below.
