100% Employee-owned Cooperative
To foster an inclusive environment, focused on individual growth and development, that maintains the humanistic and democratic nature of Happy Earth for the financial security of our team and the enrichment of our community.
Democracy in the Workplace
As Minnesota's first (and for now, only) green cleaning cooperative, we are 100% employee-owned. All full-time Happy Earth employees are welcome to assume part-ownership of our co-op and directly influence our workplace.

On January 1st, 2020, founding members Rachel Battles, Tom Crouse, Zach Dennis, LA Luebbers, and Jason Belden purchased Happy Earth Cleaning, LLC from Jesse and Marion Dunbar to form Minnesota's first employee-owned cleaning cooperative.
Our transition from LLC to employee-owned cooperative would not have been possible without the support of these organizations
