Earth Day 2023

Employee volunteers celebrate Earth Day annually by cleaning up litter through the Kane County, IL Adopt-a-Highway program. This program is a great way to give back to our community and help keep our roadways clean.

Earth Day 2021 – We planted an oak tree on the Elgin, IL HQ campus in honor of Jasper Sanfilippo, Sr. Jasper took over the family business in 1963 and successfully led the company until his retirement in 2006. Planting this tree shows an ongoing commitment to helping clean the air and fight climate change. Over the past decade, we have planted over 400 trees at all of our manufacturing facilities to support environmental sustainability efforts.
