Giving Back and Giving Thanks - 2023
Do well by doing good, the only sustainable business model
As a company, Planet of the Vapes not only wants to have a positive impact on our customers and team but also on our planet and communities as well. We understand that as a profitable business we have the opportunity to do good and we have taken on this responsibility with the belief that bold ideas with small actions and long-term commitment can make a big change.
Taking Action: 500,000+ Meals
Planet of the Vapes is giving back and contributing 500,000+ meals to those in need. We have made this a yearly commitment because in a world where food is abundant no one should be hungry.
A crisis that demands action
There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet. In fact, billions of tons of nutritious food go uneaten every year. And yet as many as 828 million people still go hungry. A crisis driven largely by poverty, inequality, conflict, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re proud to be supporting organizations that offer dignity to those in need and work tirelessly to end hunger.
Think global, act local
We are a global team with customers around the world, but most of our business is in the US and Canada and our contributions reflect a “think global, act local” attitude, supporting the work of three amazing organizations that empower their local communities to solve hunger in a sustainable way.
Thank you for your help!
We are grateful that we are able to do this and we couldn't have done this without you. THANK YOU for your support and for being a part of ‘Giving Back and Giving Thanks’!
