Love Child Organics’ TerraCycle program

Our pouches, snack wrappers and bags are now recyclable!

At Love Child Organics our commitment to good goes beyond our food. We’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to make a positive difference to the environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle. TerraCycle, an eco-friendly recycling company, is a global leader in recycling typically non-recyclable waste.

Once you’ve sent your empty packaging to TerraCycle, they are remolded to make newly recycled products like benches, picnic tables and even playgrounds. Pretty cool, right? Additionally, every time you recycle with TerraCycle, you collect points that can redeemed as a charitable donation to your local non-profit organization or school or your choice!

how it works

TerraCycle makes recycling so simple, anyone can do it. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3… 4!

To participate, all you need to do is register with TerraCycle, start collecting your empty Love Child Organics pouches, snack wrappers and bags, then ship them for free with a shipping label from TerraCycle. It’s a great way to help the environment, and teach your littles about the importance of taking care of the earth!

Giving

Love Child Organics’ non-profit partnerships

When Love Child Organics was founded, we knew that we wanted to make the highest quality organic food for children, and at the same time, give back to children in need. We believed it was extremely important to embed this belief into our company’s DNA, and so made it one of our core values.

This means our commitment to good goes beyond our food. At Love Child Organics we run our business with honesty, integrity, and passion to make a difference on a larger scale. We are proud to be a B Corporation, a certification which validates our commitment to thinking beyond profitability, always considering the ways our business can do good in the world.

We believe that businesses have the power to truly effect positive change. For this reason we donate 1 cent of every product sold* to non-profits that support children. This is something we have done since inception and is an ongoing commitment we make to children in need in Canada, and through our partners, also further afield.

With each decision we make, we strive to improve children’s lives on a larger scale. With our Spreading the LOVE campaign, we support children in the areas of Nourishment and Basic Needs, Play, Literacy, and Health, supporting children holistically to reach their full potential. Currently we are honored to partner with the non-profit organizations below. Click on each below to find out more information about how they support children in need.

 

 


Nourishment & Basic Needs

BabyGoRound
BabyGoRound, a registered non-profit society, provides families in need with necessary equipment, clothing and products to ensure the well-being of their infants and young children. By providing these very concrete resources, BabyGoRound helps relieve the financial stress of having a new baby and is a vital partner in a network of support for BC’s most vulnerable families.

Play

Playground Builders

Playground Builders is a registered charity that builds playgrounds for children in war-torn areas. There is often no safe place for children to play in the midst of conflict. Most kids have never experienced the joy of a swing or the thrill of a slide. Playground Builders is dedicated to building hope and peace through the gift of play.

Since its inception in 2007, Playground Builders has built more than 200 playgrounds at schools, orphanages and in common areas. More than 500,000 children have safe havens to play and to experience happy childhoods.

Playground Builders creates play and builds hope, one playground at a time.


Literacy

First Book Canada
First Book Canada™ is a non-profit social enterprise that provides access to new books for children in need. Since 1992, First Book™ has distributed more than 115 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children throughout the United States and Canada. Through partnerships with leading publishing companies, First Book Canada™ secures high-quality titles that help educators create enriched learning experiences for their students, transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education.

Health

Sick Kids

SickKids vs. The Greatest Challenges in Child Health

The SickKids vision is simple: Healthier Children. A Better World. SickKids believes fighting for the health and wellbeing of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society.

Last year, SickKids Foundation invested $137.3 million in critical research, innovative education, and exceptional clinical care. With donor support, SickKids is building a better future by helping all children reach their fullest potential.

Community support for specialized paediatric research, care, and education has enabled SickKids to achieve so much. Cancer used to be a death sentence; today, 80 per cent of Canadian children with cancer are cured. The incidence of sudden infant death syndrome has been reduced by 40 per cent. Children born with a heart defect used to die before their teen years, and now 90 per cent live into adulthood. These and many more achievements in child health were made possible by donors.

Fifty years ago, we could only hope for the treatments and cures we now have. Through the extraordinary belief, tremendous efforts, and generous investments of partners today, our hope for future treatments and cures to address the health challenges our children now face can become a reality.


* $0.01 is donated for each Love Child Organics product purchased from April 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018, with a guaranteed total contribution of $80,000 per year, split between the four non-profit partners above.
