People Before Profit
Our goal is to produce the highest quality products with the lowest environmental impact while giving back to Humanity and the Planet. We believe a few can make a difference to many.
Conscious and ethical consumerism along with intelligent and prudent husbandry is at the forefront of our resolve to ensure an integral balance with the coconut ecosystem.
People Before Profit
At Earthcoco the concept of Fair Trade is exactly that – those who work hard to harvest the coconuts receive a fair living wage, and can prosper alongside the parent companies and corporations that profit from their efforts.
Tools for Schools
With successful programs in educational outreach and vocational training, our company is making positive inroads toward improving the social and economic well being of our farmers and their families. We take pride in donating school supplies to our farmer’s communities.
Earth Coco is a coconut products company based in Santa Monica, California and proudly born in the Philippines.
On the little island of Samar, we work, live, and experience the wonders and hardships of the tropical Philippine paradise alongside the farmers and their families. “People Before Profit” has been the foundational motto of Earth Coco since day one, striving to produce the best quality coconut products while maintaining an honest, philanthropic role in society. In addition to carefully balancing ecology and consumption to create a new business architecture that gives voice to the coconut farmers and their crops.
The Earth Coco Foundation was established to focus our efforts even further in helping our island community as well as our neighbors on Main Street in Santa Monica. Striving to go above and beyond the concept of “Fair Trade,” at Earth Coco we prefer to use the term “True Trade.” From far away organic farms and wild- harvest forests to your shopping cart, products that bear our logo come from farmers and workers who are more than justly compensated.
Working with the Community
As a concerned citizen of the island of Samar in the Philippines, Earth Coco plays an important role in its island community. With successful programs in educational outreach, vocational training, and assistance in the obtainment of recognized certification in organic farming techniques, we are making positive inroads toward improving the social and economic well being of its partners and their extended families.
Through our official non-profit, the Earth Coco Foundation, every year we dedicate our resources and funding towards different projects throughout the Philippines. Rebuilding schools and homes and making charitable donations after natural disasters has been our major focus the past three years. In addition to rebuilding affected buildings by the super typhoons, our current project includes building a new community center. Our long-term goal is to help farmers in the developing country of the Philippines build sustainable, eco-friendly, and profitable businesses that positively influence entire regions and demographics. By purchasing Earth Coco products, you can see active change and improvements to living standards in real time.
In the tropical islands of the Philippines, where Indo-China meets the South Pacific, Coconut trees grow in abundance, in harmony with the landscape and the people. This is where our Coconut Water, Cream and Meat come from.
Many of our suppliers are small plot farmers who harvest coconuts from family and communal land.
The children where we source our coconut products are part of what makes the communities we work in such happy and inspiring places. With so little material things they create a lot of happiness in their lives – it is a lesson we all could learn from. Find out about our Tools for Schools program.
