Los Angeles, CA - Kopali Organics, a fair commerce organic specialty food company announced today it will lead a 'Conscious Goods Caravan' to southern California, Arizona and Nevada. The caravan will be visiting Whole Foods Markets, local schools, universities, farmers markets and other community centers in the southern pacific region, to promote fair commerce, organic products and transparent business practices. The first stop on tour will be the International Sales meeting of Business Wire and www.CSRwire.com at the Loew's Santa Monica Beach Hotel, where csrwire.com will announce their sponsorship of next year's tour. This year's tour will last six weeks.

Kopali has invited other mission-aligned ecologically and socially conscious businesses to tour 23 Whole Foods Market stores during its launch of twenty-five new products from Mexico and Costa Rica. The Company's Eco Showroom Veggie Bus runs on recycled vegetable oil. The mobile headquarters features photovoltaic solar electricity, sustainable bamboo and palm wood interiors, an all-organic renewable energy kitchen and dozens of other sustainable, organic and fair commerce solutions.

For six weeks Kopali's Eco Showroom Veggie Bus and its crew of social entrepreneurs and media artists will raise the awareness of fair commerce and organic foods, two of the fastest growing segments in the food and beverage industries. "We look forward to the day when all businesses and products are as focused on improving people's lives and our planet's well-being as they are on the financial bottom line" says Zak Zaidman, Kopali's co-founder.

Other mission aligned conscious businesses who have joined Kopali on the Conscious Goods Caravan include No Enemy, New Chapter, Bean Products, KlipTech PaperStone, GreenHome.com, TS Designs, Eco Teas, and of course Whole Foods Market.

Kopali's founders are also the Co-founders of the Sustainable Solutions Caravan. In the past two consecutive years, the recycled vegetable oil powered caravan traveled from San Francisco through Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica meeting with farmers, government officials, business leaders and press reaching tens of millions with their message promoting sustainable lifestyles.

Kopali was founded in 2004 at Punta Mona, an off-the-grid educational farm and sustainability center in the rainforest of Costa Rica. The Company operates as an umbrella organization for other mission aligned ventures including Kopali Communities, developing ultra ecological farms and communities in Costa Rica. Kopali is part of a small but growing breed of triple-bottom-line businesses that are driven by, focused on and committed to social and ecological missions with financial returns.
