Is Mighty-O organic and sustainable?
Mighty-O has a philosophy to use sustainable products and create zero waste by attentive and conscientious composting and recycling. Our flour bags are converted into compost trash bags. We use biodegradable greenware made from corn for our iced beverages. We also provide a place to compost and recycle in our retail store. We don’t use harsh chemicals for cleaning, and will continue to support vendors who supply products that are recycled, organic and green. We compost, recycle, and reuse to minimize impact, create a safe work environment for our employees and customers, and to reduce waste and conserve resources.

Mighty-O’s organic palm oil is sourced from Agropalma, a company which started more than 10 years ago, in an agricultural area of the Amazon delta near Belem in Brazil. Since then, Agropalma has reforested 185,000 acres of previously cultivated land, which consequentially led to the rehabilitation of 7 previously endangered animal species. Agropalma has a policy of never replacing forest with plantations. The Agropalma project has also been approved as one of the first EcoSocial projects in Brazil. All of the organic production is certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
