About Planted

Our mission is to connect, empower, and support communities working to improve life for all living beings.

Our Story

We partner with brands, restaurants & communities to help bring more plant-based options to menus everywhere. Since 2016, we have helped convert 5 restaurants to go all vegan and have added 290 vegan items to menus in 5 US cities.

We provide free assistance to small businesses looking to include more plant-based options, host free community cooking classes, facilitate educational workshops, and throw localized social events for people interested in animal, social, and environmental advocacy. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 

We hope to reach as many people as possible to spread awareness of our mission, welcoming and inviting individuals with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We are committed to keeping Planted Society free of discrimination based on racial and ethnic origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status or religious beliefs in all areas of our nonprofit.

To ensure this commitment remains a priority for our organization, the Planted Society Board of Directors pledges to receive ongoing DEI education and training, at minimum biannually.

Planted Society exists to promote equality and justice. We vow to continue learning and unlearning to ensure all individuals, human or nonhuman, are considered and cared for; especially those who are oppressed, marginalized or experience inequity.
