For McC’s, it’s not about saving the world, one locally-sourced boysenberry at a time.
It’s about churning out the most glorious ice creams imaginable, in the most conscious way possible, while paying forward our unique legacy.
So that we leave this world just a little “sweeter” than we found it.
End of the day, there are people and organizations out there doing great things and a planet that needs our help.
1% For The Planet
With deep roots along California’s Central Coast, all of us at McConnell’s take pride in and support our unique, natural environment (like our ice cream, we prefer the environment be pristine and all-natural).
1% For The Planet was founded in 2001 by Craig Mathews, the owner of Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone, Montana, and Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia (McConnell’s “neighbor”, just down the coast in Ventura, Ca.) to encourage businesses to donate 1% of their sales to environmental organizations.
