Since it’s inception, American Beauties Native Plants has been giving back in a big way. It’s at the very core of our mission. For 10 years American Beauties Native Plants partnered with the National Wildlife Federation and donated $267,000 to help support their environmental education programs

This year we are spreading our wings to help other worthy causes such as the exciting new documentary Hometown Habitat, from award winning filmmaker Catherine Zimmerman. "American Beauties Native Plants kicked off Hometown Habitat fundraising by sponsoring the first minute of production! And they continue to support!”- Catherine Zimmerman

"Donating funds to make this documentary film possible was the right thing to do. It's important work, and what better way to convey the message about native plants, pollinators and larval foods than by seeing the relationship first hand. Surely, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a movie is worth a million." - co-owner of American Beauties, Steve Castorani

We are also committed to the Pollinator Partnership and their Wings Over Ohio program. The campaign will research, maintain and augment the Ohio segment of the North American Monarch Migration. “We are so proud to join forces with the Pollinator Partnership. Their projects and research are invaluable!” – Peggy Anne Montgomery, Brand Manager American Beauties
