A Cookie With a Cause

Last year, the Green Mountain EnergyTM Sun ClubTM donated a solar project to the Greyston Foundation to help the Greyston Bakery bake brownies with the power of the sun!

Now, the bakery is baking solar-powered Cookie Thins that are equally delicious and sustainable.

As if you needed a reason to eat more cookies, these new sun-shiny treats were featured on the Whole Planet Foundation’s blog, highlighting the bakery’s sustainable business practices and charitable benefits that are helping to change lives:

  • Since launching the cookies, Greyston has added 16 new jobs to its bakery. Through their Open Hiring™ model, the bakery is providing job opportunities to anyone with the willingness to work!
  • The cookies benefit the Greyston Foundation that works to provide low-income housing, childcare, workforce development, and other programs to better serve their community in Yonkers, New York.
  • Through their partnership with the Whole Planet Foundation, 1% of Cookie Thins profits support efforts to alleviate poverty through microcredit loans across 60 countries. Learn more.
