Three Principles Guide What Garden of Life Makes & How They Make It:
The Science of Whole Food
Your body was created to eat, process and derive its nutrition from food - real, healthy food. So, when Garden of Life creates their products, they start by looking at food. What is the “good stuff” in the highest quality food that you're are missing in your diet? Which of those foods have the greatest potential to impact - and empower - extraordinary health?
Clean is Healthy
Garden of Life starts with what goes in their products - true, whole food ingredients. But they don’t stop there. They also pay very close attention to what they keep out of them. And once again, Garden of Life looks at food - real nutrition food. When is the last time you picked up an apple, turned to read the ingredients and saw a list of chemicals? If it’s not in your food, then they don’t want it in their supplements. They use third-party (never self-affirmed) certifications prove they are clean!
Traceability is key to what makes Garden of Life’s products so special. Traceability starts with knowing where each and every ingredient in their products comes from and getting to know each and every source: where it’s grown; the farming practices; how they pay and treat the farm workers - everything.
It’s so important to start with Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified fruits and vegetables that are grown without these chemicals. Garden of Life wants to get the good stuff from foods that are grown without any of the bad stuff. They do it because it’s the only way they know to deliver on their promise - to empower extraordinary health.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. LEED stands for green building leadership, and is transforming the way you think about how buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe.
LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy. LEED certification means healthier, more productive places, reduced stress on the environment by encouraging energy and resource-efficient buildings and savings from increased building value, higher lease rates and decreased utility costs. In fact, 88 of the Fortune 100 companies are already using LEED. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.
Leaders across the globe have made LEED the most widely used green building rating system in the world with 1.7 million square feet of construction space certifying every day. LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings. With LEED, better buildings are their legacy. The LEED plaque on a building is a mark of quality and achievement in green building. It’s the triple bottom line in action, benefiting people, planet and profit.
Green-e Energy is the nation’s leading voluntary certification program for renewable energy. For over a decade, Green-e Energy has been certifying renewable energy that meets environmental and consumer protection standards that it developed in conjunction with leading environmental, energy and policy organizations.
Green-e Energy also requires that sellers of certified renewable energy disclose clear and useful information to potential customers, allowing consumers to make informed choices. When you see the Green-e logo and buy renewable energy that is Green-e Energy Certified, you know the following:
- You are supporting new renewable resources: The windmill, solar panel or other generator that produced your renewable energy was built since 1997.
- There has been no double selling. You are the only one who can claim the benefits of the renewable energy you bought; these benefits include the fact that renewable energy produces little or no greenhouse gas emissions.
- Your purchase goes beyond business as usual. You are buying renewable energy beyond what is required by law or claimed against a mandate, and are helping expand the production of renewable energy in the U.S. and Canada.
Green-e Energy stands for verified, certified renewable energy and greenhouse gas emission reductions.
One-quarter to one-third of all domestic waste is packaging and much of it is difficult to recycle. At Garden of Life, they are intentional about using 100% recyclable packaging - as well as printing with vegetable ink - as much as possible. It’s a standard they are committed to for their products, consumers and for Earth. So, look for recyclable packaging symbols on Garden of Life products.
Called the Mobius Loop, this symbol indicates that an object is capable of being recycled-not that the object has been recycled or will be accepted in all recycling collection systems. Sometimes this symbol is used with a percentage figure in the middle to explain that the packaging contains a certain percentage of recycled material.
Recycling symbols can be further divided into two separate categories:
- Recyclable symbols marking products made from specific materials that are suitable for recycling, depending on whether there is a collection mechanism in place within the local community for those particular materials.
- Recycled symbols designating products containing recycled materials.
The use of the terms “recycled” and “recyclable”, among others, and the display of the symbols is governed by the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims. These guidelines govern all environmental claims attached to and/or associated with products, including those described in labeling, advertising and all forms of marketing. The international standard for defining environmental claims on products or packaging can be found in ISO 14021: Environmental Labels and Declarations-Self-Declared Environmental Claims.

SOS Children’s Villages International is an international, non-governmental, social development organization with a presence in 133 countries and territories that has been active since 1949. These homes will provide a safe haven where orphans can grow up in a healthy family environment. On a local level, Garden of Life employees come together to develop a variety of health-related projects and volunteer their time to promote these local initiatives.
Garden of Life donates a percentage of sales of its Oceans 3 Healthy Hormones dietary supplement to Women Heart, the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, to improve the health and quality of life of women living with or at risk of heart disease. It is the only organization with a national network of patient support groups across the country and a dynamic online support community that provides peer-to-peer support for women and heart disease.

About Garden of Life
Garden of Life is fanatical about food. They’re different that way. Whether they’re making a vitamin, or a probiotic, or a protein powder, they always start with real foods and these (foods) provide Garden of Life formulas the power to be their best. They’re different that way too. The synthetically created, chemical “breakthroughs” from huge commercial laboratories around the world are not for them. Let the other guys sell those “supplements.” No thanks.
As fanatical as Garden of Life is over what goes into their products, they are even more obsessed about the things they keep out of them. Garden of Life hates those synthetic chemicals that most companies use to make their products. This stuff makes machines work faster, and helps factories churn out super-sized containers at higher “efficiency.” Well, while the other guys spend their time preoccupied with their efficiency, Garden of Life is uncompromising about your health. Slow it down, make it by hand, grow it in rich organic non-GMO soil with enough sun, air, water and time for it to be its best. Harvest it when ready. Treat it with care. Turn it into a power-packed nutritious food supplement. That’s what Garden of Life is about.
