World Wetlands Day is celebrated on February 2 every year. Its a celebration of the vital role wetlands provide for people and our planet. Unlike any other ecosystem, wetlands can improve natural water quality, protect against floods, control shoreline erosion, and of course, provide opportunities for recreation.
Vital to their brand identity, Mary’s Gone Crackers (the leading gluten free, non-GMO, organic and plant-based cracker brand) has supported California wetlands for over 17 years as a part of their long-term corporate sustainability efforts.
All of the brand's rice, a key ingredient in the Original, Super Seed and REAL Thin crackers, is sourced exclusively from the California Rice Commission, which has effectively transformed hundreds of thousands of acres of rice fields into seasonal wetland habitats for waterbirds to inhabit. Furthermore, these rice fields support millions of birds that migrate up and down the Pacific Flyway, a migratory corridor extending from the Arctic down to Patagonia. When managed properly, these fields can provide key habitat for a wide variety of species all year long.
Thank you Mary's Gone Crackers for your great support of the California Wetlands! :)
