San Diego-based Organics Unlimited is celebrating GROW month in September to promote sustainability, education and health programs.

GROW month will bring awareness to the company’s social responsibility programs in partnership with retailers and media, according to a news release.

“We’re particularly excited this year as our social responsibility programs have expanded health care services for even more people to create additional positive change,” Mayra Velazquez de Leon, president and CEO of GROW and Organics Unlimited, said in the release.

For 12 years, GROW organic banana sales have raised $2 million for those in need. GROW stands for Giving Resources and Opportunities to Workers.

“During GROW month, we want more consumers to connect with the meaning of truly making a significant difference in the lives of the less fortunate. We want them to develop a greater understanding of the significant impact their GROW banana purchases have and recognize that they really can help change lives,” she said in the release.

Throughout September, retailers can support Organics Unlimited’s initiative through banana purchases and sharing it on social media using the #GROWmonth, according to the release.

The company has also made a “GROW month toolkit” for retail and web promotions. For additional information and materials, contact
