Walmart® Supercenters throughout southern California, including those in LA and Orange County, will now carry Save the Earth™ Fresh Mint Gum and Feed the Hungry™ Peppermint Mints, both products of Project 7®, an Orange County based company that makes everyday products for good. Simply put, you buy, they give.
Consumers are not asked to buy more, just change the way they buy, and by doing so, can participate in positive and meaningful change simply by purchasing everyday products. For every tray of Feed the Hungry Peppermint Mints purchased, seven meals are delivered in U.S. communities to a person or family in need. And for each tube of Save the Earth Fresh Mint Gum sold, one fruit tree will be planted back into the earth.
Project 7 recently launched its two newest products in nearly 1,500 Walmart Supercenters across the U.S., in addition to the more than 3,000 retail stores nationwide and Project 7’s online store already carrying the products.
“By buying everyday products like Project 7 gum and mints, people know the exact and instant impact they are making,” said Tyler Merrick, founder and CEO of Project 7. “Through our new national distribution channels alone, we anticipate providing more than one million meals and one million fruit trees just from the sales of Project 7 gum and mints.”
The Feed the Hungry Peppermint Mints (MSRP $1.28 per 50-ct. tube) and Save the Earth Fresh Mint Gum (MSRP $2.88 per 55-ct. tube) are an addition to the Heal the Sick Cinnamon mints and gums. As suggested, each flavor is tied to a specific cause that when purchased gives back to the area of interest.
Other Project 7 products include organic fair trade coffee and bio-bottled water, both offered in all seven areas of need – Feed the Hungry, Heal the Sick, Hope for Peace, House the Homeless, Quench the Thirsty, Teach them Well and Save the Earth.
In conjunction with this national launch, Project 7 is encouraging people to ‘Join the MoveMINT’ and spread the word about making positive change through purchasing these products, volunteering within their communities and helping educate their friends and family on ways to better the lives of others through giving back.
