20th Anniversary

Community Outreach

We recently took a private tour of the Hilton Bialek Habitat – MEarth facility in Carmel Valley. MEarth is a non-profit organization dedicated to education and inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders. It is an extraordinary place for children. We were so impressed with the people, mission and guiding principles of the organization that we decided to donate a portion of the sales of our 20th Anniversary Blend to support their good work. Find out more about the organization by visiting MEarthCarmel.org – Dean & Janet McAthie.
