Laird Superfood's Sustainability Initiative
Posted on June 2, 2021
We are so excited to share our latest sustainability initiativesA Carbon-Neutral Last Mile
Laird Superfood is addressing greenhouse gas emissions head-on. As the brand continues to grow, we’ve recognized the increase in greenhouse gas emissions from orders shipped to customers. We are excited more people are enjoying our nourishing and delicious superfood blends but it’s in our power and it is our duty to stay true to our brand pillar of “health,” striving for human health and a healthy planet too. Although we’ve implemented new programs to help customers bundle their orders to ship less often, we knew we wanted to do more.
Laird Superfood recently entered an official partnership with the incredible organizations, First Environment and Eden Projects, to reduce the brand’s environmental impact. These two industry-leading companies are taking the steps to ensure that Laird Superfood’s “last-mile” is carbon neutral. First Environment will be providing Laird Superfood comprehensive impact reports, and Eden Reforestation Projects will serve as the tree planting partner for Laird Superfood’s last-mile greenhouse gas impact. The Eden Reforestation Projects has planted over 580,000,000 trees across eight countries to offset carbon emissions. Further, Eden Projects employs local people, in an effort to uplift communities.
Through First Environment’s Regulatory Compliance and Auditing Sector, the Laird Superfood brand is improving environmental efforts. First Environment has helped hospitals, universities, municipal facilities, and more, understand and curb their environmental impact. Partnering with these incredible organizations is the first of many steps on the brand’s journey to being accountable for environmental impact and setting sustainability goals.
