Los Angeles, CA. La Monarca Bakery is proud to announce its recent certification as a 1% for the Planet member. This achievement reaffirms La Monarca Bakery’s commitment to preserving and protecting the Monarch butterfly population, and is a result of La Monarca Bakery’s long-standing partnership with ECOLIFE Conservation, which cultivates impactful solutions to care for the delicate habitat of the Monarch butterflies that La Monarca Bakery honors in its namesake.
As La Monarca Bakery has grown from a single bakery in 2006 to twelve retail locations throughout Los Angeles and national grocery distribution today, its support of this mission has grown as well. In 2023, La Monarca Bakery raised and donated $68,000 towards Monarch Butterfly conservation through multiple fundraising initiatives, including an in-store retail activation during Earth Month in April.
“We founded La Monarca Bakery to share The Sweet Flavor of Mexico with our communities. Caring for the environment is part of our mission, and we are dedicated to helping preserve the Monarch Butterfly through 1% for the Planet. We are proud to join such renowned companies that share our commitment to making a positive impact on our world," said Ricardo Cervantes, CEO & Co-Founder.
“We believe environmental organizations play a unique and critical role in solving the many challenges facing our planet and our core work is to grow the corporate support that enables these Environmental Partners to empower greater change” states Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
ECOLIFE Conservation is at the forefront of impactful work ensuring the survival of the Monarch butterflies. As a business deeply committed to environmental responsibility, La Monarca Bakery looks forward to making a meaningful impact through its ongoing support of ECOLIFE.
