By selecting organically grown ingredients we are supporting organic farmers who tend the tilth of the soil and the health of our planet. Organic farming practices eliminate soil and water contamination and helps preserve local wildlife and conserve biodiversity. It also helps the fight against global warming because most organically produced food is distributed locally. As a result, less energy is used for transportation which automatically reduces carbon dioxide emissions. Organic food production reduces erosion and preserves topsoil, as well. For more about this check out “The Environmental Benefits of Organic Food Production.”
Additionally, a plant-based diet has a direct impact on the health of our planet. By choosing to eat more plant-based foods you can drastically cut your carbon footprint, save precious water supplies and help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock. Plant and animal biodiversity is also preserved and honored with a choice to eat a plant-based diet. Check out “5 Ways Eating More Plant-Based Foods Benefits the Environment“.
We re-use many of our containers to minimize the impact on landfill and preserve precious resources. We are avid recyclers. And we return our organic waste to the Earth through composting and working with bicycle-powered Santa Cruz Community Compost.
