5 for the People

Our Role | 5% for the People

At Imlak’esh Organics, we created a 5% for the People program to invest in brighter future. Inspired by amazing socially conscious third parties like B Corporation, Rainforest Alliance, and 1% for the Planet, we decided to donate 5% of our annual profits to an eco-social project that benefits the people and the planet. We believe it is our responsibility — all of our responsibilities: businesses, governments, and individuals alike — to work towards a brighter future.

As a sustainable, intentional company, we strive to build a synergy between local agricultural economies and the global marketplace; providing living wages and socio-economic opportunities for international and US communities alike. Our core values are rooted in the permaculture principles of people care, earth care, and fair share.

Our Mission

To provide the highest quality organic, sustainably harvested foods to nourish the people and provide living wages and socio-economic opportunities for small farmers.

“We must strive to preserve the Earth’s abundance for future generations.”

Our 5% for the People program is a way for us to implement fair share. It is important for us to give back to communities and regenerative projects. When we are blessed with abundance, it enables us to share with others. This practice of sharing and supporting each other invites greater connectedness: community to community; human to human.

Your Role | Vote With Your Dollar

You are an empowered individual, and you play a vital role in building a greater world. There are many actions you can take to make a difference; not only as an educated citizen, but even as a consumer.

Pull Quote | “We have to vote with our votes as well as our food dollars,” says Mr Pollan.
You can effect change and encourage positive industry trends by “voting with your dollar.”  Use your purchasing power to support the companies you want to thrive in the marketplace, companies that align with your values. For example, a purchase of organic goods is considered a vote in favor of organic farming and a vote against industrial, chemical agriculture.

The Future | Shared Responsibility

We invite you to define your values and decide on the future you want to see.

By supporting Imlak’esh Organics, not only are you supporting the organic industry, but you are also supporting family farms and women’s’ collectives, sustainable cultivation practices, ethical trading practices, indigenous communities, regenerative rainforest projects, artisan craft, local livelihoods, and a young eco-conscious business striving to make a difference.
