Our Commitment to Nature

Nature’s Way Canada is deeply committed to a healthy planet. We recognize the importance of managing our environmental impact which is why ensuring a sustainable environment is a core value of ours. We strive to help people live their best lives using the gifts of nature.

1% For the Planet

In 2002, Nature’s Way Canada was the first Natural Health Products manufacturer to join 1% for the Planet,
an international alliance of businesses committed to a healthier world. 1% of all Omega-3 annual sales are donated to environmental causes worldwide. This long-term partnership forms the foundation of our environmental commitment. By targeting environmental organizations that we believe in, Nature’s Way directs crucial funding to enable our partners to do their work. Over the years, Nature’s Way Canada has contributed more than $1.2 million CAD and counting! Our passionate team headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia and with employees across Canada, we are deeply proud of this ongoing commitment and the work that we have supported.

In 2019, 1% for the Planet launched their campaign to spread awareness about their 1% for the Planet movement. Now is the time to be part of something bigger. We're proud to be part of the 1% for the Planet network fighting for a better future. Join the movement by showing your world and sharing the people and places you want to protect by using the hashtag #BeOnePercentBetter

David Sukuzi Foundation
For over 12 years, Nature’s Way Canada has been a close partner with the David Suzuki Foundation. Throughout each campaign, Nature’s Way has collaborated closely with the foundation to design programs that engage Canadians and reflect on the core values of the organization. Our work with the David Suzuki Foundation represents the leading national environmental partnership that we use to connect with Canadian consumers and retailers on environmental issues. Our support has resulted in donations over $500,000 CAD and counting. Here are a few of our proud contributions:


● A presenting national sponsorship of The Blue Dot Tour, the DSF program which lobbies the government to add environmental causes to Canada’s Bill of Rights.
● A national sponsorship of The Butterflyway Project, a grassroots program designed to support the creation of habitats for pollinators in key urban and rural parts of the country.
● A sponsorship of the Monarchs in Mexico program specifically designed to protect the Monarch butterfly.
● The 30x30 Challenge which encouraged Canadians to spend 30 minutes per day in the outdoors for a month.
● Annual Earth Day Celebrations each year.
