Green Smoothies for a Good Cause

Green Smoothies

Organic green smoothie company Green Mustache was founded by a mother who struggled to incorporate more vegetables into her three-year-old’s diet, a challenge faced by many parents. When a routine check-up revealed that her child was lacking vital nutrients, Green Mustache’s founder and CEO VanTrang Manges started hiding dark green veggies in smoothies where the taste could be easily camouflaged. From that point on, Manges built up a business creating smoothies for children—and adults too!

Green Mustache has six product offerings that all include two cups of kale and spinach and one serving of fruit. Every flavor— Tropical Twist, O’ Soy Good, Carrot Orange, Mixed Berry, Orange Mango, and Strawberry Banana—is certified organic, veganfriendly, and gluten-free. The bottles are BPA-free and a portion of sales goes to charity.

Green Mustache has teamed up with the nonprofit Vitamin Angels by donating 1% of their proceeds to the charity. Vitamin Angels provides vitamin A and multivitamins for at-risk children across the world. Vitamin A deficiencies are all too real and threaten the lives of one-third of children under five years old. Most recipients live in areas of minimal food security and minimal governmental intervention. Vitamin Angels works with leading economists and over 400 non-governmental organizations to provide the most efficient distribution of vitamins to difficult areas throughout the world. By supporting your own family’s health with the purchase of these green smoothies, you are also helping support the life and nutrition of another child. What a great program!
