NEW YORK, September 6th, 2019 -- The Great American Turkey Co.® (GATC) announces their partnership with 1% for the Planet. The organization is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions. The goal is to encourage companies who profit from resources taken from the earth, to be responsible for protecting those resources.
From company inception, GATC has put in place sustainability practices that share the same mission as 1% for the Planet. GATC believes healthy should be more tasty, accessible, and responsible. GATC turkeys are humanely raised on family-owned American farms. The company uses the whole bird not only to serve their customers but also to preserve the environment — by reducing waste and contributing to improving the entire food system.
Through the 1% for the Planet partnership, GATC is supporting The Wholesome Wave Foundation by committing to support access to fresh local food. Wholesome Wave is the leading national organization working to increase affordable access to fruits and vegetables for people who struggle with hunger.
GATC believes eating right is a human right and doing right by your body means doing right by the planet.
