Other than producing the best snack-mixes to ever exist, Sahale Snacks works hard to support two valuable causes that benefit communities near and far.

The second is a partnership with The Bonneville Environmental Foundation.

The RECs pay for the delivery of clean energy to the power grid, which reduces carbon emissions from fossil–fuel based electricity.
