BōKU is so excited to announce that we are the winners of the 2016 Environmental Excellence Award! The Environmental Excellence Award recognizes businesses that go beyond day-to-day practices to protect the environment. Each year the City of Ventura Environmental Sustainability Division and the Ventura Chamber of Commerce choose a business that is incorporating environmental concerns into their business and philosophy, and this year they chose us!
Our mission at BōKU is to positively impact the highest number of people possible with the healing power of whole food, organic nutrition. As a family owned, globally celebrated health and well-being company that focuses on vibrant, sustainable wellness of our body, our community, and our planet, we could not be more excited to be recognized for the Environmental Excellence Award. Since the inception of BōKU, we have continually strived to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. From using recycled printer paper and office supplies to sourcing our raw ingredients only from sustainable farms, to using a 100% solar powered facility for our BōKU Bars, we have always been conscious of our impact on this Earth and do all we can to operate as cleanly and sustainably as possible.

Looking forward into the future, we will continue to research, explore and discover new and innovative ways to sustainably produce the most pristine, organic nutrition blends found on this earth. In 2017 we are looking forward to launching our reusable and recyclable packaging, which we estimate will cut down waste from packaging by at least half. We also look forward to fostering existing relationships within our community and across the globe, as well as making new connections with like-minded people to help better the planet as a whole.
All Smiles from the BōKU Team!
