Unilever’s Cross Off Hunger program is part of their larger commitment to sustainable living. I love when companies not only give back but are committed to making a difference with the products they provide to us every day.
About Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan
Unilever is committing to a ten year journey towards sustainable growth. What makes this Plan different is that it applies right across the value chain. Unilever is taking responsibility not just for their direct operations but for the suppliers, distributors and – crucially – for how our consumers use their brands. The Sustainable Living Plan is making life better and includes:
- Improving Health & Well Being
- Reducing Environmental Impact
- Enhancing Livelihoods

My Response to Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan
I appreciate that Unilever is committed to this sustainable living plan. I love that this plan is comprehensive. It does not just include environmental changes but also includes health & hygiene, improving nutrition, and better livelihoods. These are all important in the life of people all over the world. The fact that Unilever is commited to this Plan makes me want to purchase more Unilever products.
One way we believe that we can help Unilever in their Plan is not just by shopping for their products but also to do our best to live sustainably as well. By reducing our carbon foot print, teaching our children to do the same, and instilling a spirit of volunteerism and charity will go a long way to improve the conditions of life for all.
One more way we believe we can help is to take part in donating to our local food bank. This action helps enhance livelihoods of people right in our own community. We use Unilever products in our home – like Best Foods, Dove, Q-Tips, and Bertolli – so I know that these same products would be useful for others.
I took my daughter shopping with me with the specific task of buying Unilever products for our local food bank. We had a great time deciding what to buy. We found some great Unilever products that also included health and beauty products. I know our local food bank will be glad, as well as the people who will be getting these products.
I believe it is important to teach these things to children while the are young. Making Life Better is not just about making our own lives better but by helping others reach their better life too. I am glad that Unilever is committed to this.
What ways do you live sustainably? What are some more ideas on how we can all live more sustainably in 2013?
