Project 7

Top executive: Tyler Merrick, founder and CEO

Project 7 is founded on the principle of doing good deeds around the globe. It makes and sells everyday products such as bottled water, gum, mints and coffee and then invests in one of seven areas of need: Feed the Hungry, Heal the Sick, Hope for Peace, House the Homeless, Quench the Thirsty, Teach Them Well and Save the Earth. For instance, with proceeds from Save the Earth products, Project 7 plants fruit trees. The company has integrated eco-consciousness into its packaging and production efforts, such as sourcing its products domestically and using bio-gradable bottles and organic cotton for its clothing.

“By choosing our Save the Earth and other Project 7 products, people can make a positive and meaningful change in the world,” says Tyler Merrick, founder and CEO of Project 7. “Over the next year, we anticipate planting more than 2 million fruit trees from the sale of our gum and mints alone – 2 million tress that will fight erosion, provide oxygen, add moisture to the air and, most importantly, provide food for families.”
