categories and creating new categories entirely. They are improving the way we
live our lives by improving what we eat, drink, wear and do.”

In 2016, we installed solar panels. Thanks to California’s sunny days, we are at about an 80% kilowatt/hour offset for the year. That comes to about 99% of our utility bill.

We believe that we owe it to you and our planet to tread as lightly as possible—and be a positive contributor at every opportunity we can. The fact that we can offset nearly all of our electrical consumption through renewable energy aligns with our commitment to sustainable and environmentally conscious business practices. And it sure makes our accountant happy each month!

A Growing Culture


Navitas Organics is proud to partner with A Growing Culture, an international organization dedicated to supporting farmer research and advocating on behalf of small farmers—of whom there are more than two billion worldwide—in order to align our food system with environmental and social justice.

Farmers have provided us with sustenance and nutrition for thousands of years. This is our chance to give back. Giving back means more than acknowledging a past-due recognition; it means igniting a paradigm shift in the way we view farmers and agriculture.

When it comes to saving our environment, promoting gender equality and supporting rural economies, agriculture’s impact is unparalleled. The goal of agriculture is not just production, but the preservation of culture and the unbridled human potential to shape the world in which we live, and to do so in a way that nurtures and supports not only our communities, but also the environment upon which we depend.
