At Calypso, we strive to be the change we want to see in the world. We know it begins by creating a responsible and inclusive workforce.
Serving Our Community
10% of our net profits are earmarked for women, children, education, and self-sufficiency initiatives; job training; and community revitalization.
We maintain a “community-first” mentality; looking local first for employees, vendors, goods and services before sourcing elsewhere.
Highway My Way
We partner with the Adopt-A-Highway Program to provide beautification and upkeep for 2 miles of local roadway.
We utilize sustainable packaging materials and practice responsible agriculture and recycling processes to minimize our impact on local waste streams.
Our packaging is child-resistant and compliant with all Pennsylvania Department of Health packaging and labeling regulations.

Join Our Recycling Program
Did You Know? The Calypso metal flower cans and glass concentrate jars are 100% recyclable – let’s work together to keep them out of the landfill! Bring your cans and jars back to RISE Erie and help us support sustainable practices and charitable giving in the greater Erie community.
Here’s how it works – it’s simple:
Rinse→Remove→Drop off at Rise Erie
Clean out your jar or can (including the pull tab and child resistant plastic lid) with a quick rinse. Then, remove any labels from each part. Next, drop off all the parts at our recycling depot, located at RISE Erie.
These parts travel back to our facility where they are sorted, inspected, and sterilized. The glass and metal are recycled locally.
We avoid the landfill, and money earned from recycling is put back into the community by charitable giving through Calypso Cares.
Supporting Our Employees
Employees are our #1 resource and as such, are supported, empowered and cultivated as the leaders and innovators that they are. By supporting our employees, we put the human back into human resources ♥.
We have developed and implemented a diversity strategy that supports a welcoming and inclusive workplace as well as community initiatives that appeal to all walks of life.
Employees are each incentivized and encouraged to complete a full day of volunteerism in the community.
