OUR MINIMAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Minimal Environmental Impact

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ENTIRE LIFECYCLE OF OUR PRODUCTS

As a growing company, it has always been important for us to better understand our global environmental footprint in order to reduce and offset our impact where it matters the most. So we worked with an external expert agency to do a full product life cycle assessment and determine where to act. Think our packaging and distribution are responsible for the bulk of the impact? Explore the surprising findings and discover the actions we take!

PLANTING THE SEED FOR CHANGE WITH ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

We understand agriculture’s environmental stakes. That’s another reason why we chose to be 100% organic since day one. Organic farmers don’t use synthetic chemicals to manage weeds, pests and disease in their fields. They combine and rotate their crops to encourage nutrient cycling and create a biodiverse soil that sequesters more carbon than conventional soi, in turn helping fight global warming. How about that!

OFFERING PLANT-BASED GOODNESS

We know for a fact that plant-based foods are more sustainable and have a lesser impact on the environment than other types of food. Did you know that a plant-based diet requires 5 times less the amount of land* than the typical omnivore diet? And don’t get us started on the water consumption! Not only are our plant-based snacks sustainable, they are also simply delicious: have you ever tried chia pudding?! Discover our delicious plant-based recipes!

WE PROMOTE GOOD FOOD EDUCATION

Understanding how our food choices can help build a more sustainable world is crucial to turn intention into action. That’s why we regularly create shareable goodness charts (Fight Food Waste, Plant-Based Proteins…), that help snacktivists make their own educated choices. But we also walk the talk by empowering our employees so that they can themselves sow the seeds of change through cooking classes, anti-food waste workshops, composting initiatives and more. Check out all our charts on the blog!

WE LIVE THE PRANA MANTRA

In sanskrit, PRANA means “vital energy”. So we make it our business to not only promote healthy choices among people who will enjoy our snacks but to also empower people and companies producing each ingredient we use. We strongly value our producers and work closely with them from an environmental but also a social standpoint. That’s why we try to use as much fair trade ingredients as possible, ensuring that our business activities contribute to building communities, protecting farmers’ rights and educating children.
