InBite sustainability incentives currently consist of an internal recycling program where all our trash is divided into plastic, paper, and compostable waste. As buyers of Kimberley Clark’s plastic products, we are currently trying to be part of the RightCycle program, where all nitrile gloves waste goes back to the Kimberley Clark facility and turned into new consumer goods. Other plastic waste is reused with InBite for trash, and thus we have eliminated our need to buy trash bags. Lastly, organic waste is put back into the environment and added to soil to help plants grow.
We currently partner with National Celiac Association and Mend Hunger, where we send food packages to celiac families in need of food or in food desolate areas. It is part of our core principles, not only as a brand, but as human beings, to have social awareness and accountability. As a business, not only do we sell products, but inherently feel like we have a responsibility towards the community. We cannot call ourselves a health conscious food business, unless we help those that don’t have access to the foods they need to survive and thrive.
Corporate social responsibility is not only the right thing to do, but we also believe that it is an essential part of a business model. A brand cannot survive without the community, thus we feel like we must build rapport and establish strong relationships to help us and others thrive.
