Arturo Helps Us Egg-scape from the Old Food Chain

Arturo Helps Us Egg-scape from the Old Food Chain
Arturo: Food is political. Food is cultural. Food has consequences. With every food, regardless of our intention, we are taking a stand. Three times a day, we make a choice – to live or not live our values, nourish or not nourish our bodies, kill or not kill, and to protect or not protect our planet. I am proud to say that when you buy our products, you are choosing to not kill and to do your part for the planet. Our products use less land, water, and emit fewer greenhouse gases than the alternatives.

New Farmers, New Food!

New Farmers, New Food!

JONAS: You're welcome, Spiffy! Thanks to the activists of Fridays for Future, Rebellion Extinction and other grassroots movements, the climate crisis has earned a lot of public attention. More and more people around the world, and especially in the United States, are realizing that irreversible damage from climate change will be inevitable if we continue on our current path.

The agriculture industry is one of the biggest contributors to the climate crisis, accounting for almost a quarter of global emissions. More than 50% of all food emissions stem from animal agriculture and about 21% of all food emissions come from the cultivation of crops for human consumption – the direct result of agricultural production. These emissions include the release of nitrous oxide from the application of fertilizers and manure; methane emissions from rice production; and carbon dioxide from agricultural machinery.

BEN: Nice meeting you too, Spiffy! Traditionally, chocolate is loaded with guilt. Chocolate’s supply chain keeps thousands of cacao farmers, and even children, in poverty as a direct result of how the industry operates today. And lots of ingredients in our favorite treat are unhealthy and unnatural.
