Because focusing on food, art and laughter will make everything alright. 

What We Do

Philanthropic Comedy and Music Events

Supporting local artists, providing for local communities, and being so damn fun in the process.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Two not so crazy thoughts – Sustainable and small-scale farmers help the planet, and produce healthier food, so we should see to it they stick around. People in cities should be able to afford farm-fresh food, without adding another errand to the weekend. We’re making it happen! 

Providing Products for a More Sustainable Food System

We’re building a store full of products to reduce waste in the food system, to increase access to healthy food for children, and to give you an opportunity to brag about the impact you’re making.

 The Most Impact You Can Make with Your Dollar

Each dollar you contribute will eliminate medical debt for someone in need, while strengthening small and medium-sized farmers (The farms are small, not the farmers. Well the farmers may be small, but that is not a criteria we look at when deciding if we will work with them), and making farm-fresh food affordable for everyone through Urbij’s initiatives. On top of all that, you will be supporting young artists whom are making the world a little bit more beautiful!
 
Check out our Laugh for Good comedy show. By teaming up with RIP Medical Debt, and Capital Laughs we have created a show that is dedicated to eliminating medical debt in Washington, DC. Contribute, and help us reach our goal of eliminating $1,000,000 in medical debt by the end of 2018!

Our Upcoming Store will be Filled with Tools to Clean Up This Little Planet of Ours

The Urbij e-commerce store is dedicated to reducing plastic in the food system and educating people on their environmental footprint through videos that will make you giggle your way into sustainability.

We believe that if you are aware of your environmental impact, and are presented with the tools to lessen that impact, without it being any inconvenience to you or the people around you, you should probably just go ahead and change what you’re doing.

Every purchase will reduce waste and contribute to one of our partner nonprofits.

So just to recap; purchasing from the Urbij e-commerce store will a) reduce plastic waste that is killing the fishies, b) contribute to the success of nonprofits tackling complex social issues, c) support artists contributing to the Urbij content, and d) give you the opportunity to brag about how you’re saving the world.

Join our newsletter to see the content we’re putting out, to receive exclusive offers, and to join our team as we work to improve our planet.

Check our store out at the end of October!

Our CSA System

Urbij developed a system based on bridging urban and rural communities with the belief that supporting one another can solve most major issues.

The Urbij process is simple: You become a “shareholder” at a local farm by purchasing a 24-week membership that gives the farm financial runway to produce your food. Your farmers will deliver a box of rotating crops from their farm to your apartment or place of work on a weekly basis. Each drop off site must have a minimum of fifteen shareholders in order to make it financially feasible for the farmers and to maximize our impact on local agriculture. We remove logistical complexity and substitute community support.

We work to address a plethora of issues:
Social Issues We Address:

• Our farmers receive 5x for their work than the national average
• Our food is fresher and more nutritious than supermarket produce
• Meeting your farmer bridges relationships between urban and rural communities
• Control your food quality with your dollar

How We Help the Planet:

• Carbon emissions plummet with sustainable farming practices
• Humane treatment of livestock diminishes groundwater runoff of animal waste
• We cut down on average “food miles” by sourcing everything from your backyard
• Better land management reduces soil depletion
