Here at Kim and Scott’s, we always try our best to add a natural twist to our business. From the ingredients in our pretzel creations, to our newest environmental commitment, to the world community — the Twisted Green Mission!
We started to realize that not only could we put a natural spin on our menu selection, but we could also help make our environment a better place today and for future generations. As a company, we have pledged to communicate openly about our environmental and social practices, and demand the same commitment from our suppliers and subcontractors.
To go along with this pledge, we are proud to partner with Trees for The Future, an organization that has been helping communities around the world plant trees since 1989. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, andprograms tailored specifically to each country, Trees for the Future has empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to lands all over the world, specifically Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Their philosophy remains that planting trees not only protects the environment, but also helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for future generations.
We received such positive feedback from the launch of our “Green Twist Program” on April 1, 2008, that it really encouraged us to continue our eco-friendly efforts. We are currently running a limited-time program that commenced September 1, 2010. We are dedicated to planting one new tree for each new Facebook fan or Twitter follower of Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels, the best soft pretzel available in your grocer’s freezer case.
We are very excited to explore this new environmental endeavor, and we hope you can join us along the way! We can’t wait to get your feedback. Please ask your friends to follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook so we can plant a forest of trees over the next few months.
