According to VP of Marketing and Business Development of 1% for the Planet, Melody Grote, "econscious is a valued 1% member company and partner." Grote continues, "We admire econscious for their high-standards in certified sustainable and organic products, their recent Global Organic Trade Standard (GOTS) certification, and general dedication to giving back to the community."
