🌱sourcing the food 🌱
our goods come from wholesalers in bulk quantities that mostly (90%) come in paper bags, which can be composted or recycled after use. we pick up our food at a local drop-off center from our wholesaler on a monthly basis, where members of the community all drive to pick up their bulk goods. this reduces carbon emissions because delivery trucks don't have to drive to individual drop off locations. +1 for the planet!
🌏 sourcing the jars and refill bags 🌎
we have arranged zero waste shipping for our le partfait jars, so bulk quantities of jars are sent to us without any plastic packaging. our paper refill bags are essentially coffee bags (without any inner plastic-lining), and we pick these up just up the road in one large paper box.
👩🔬 packing the food 👨🔬
our goods are packaged in a commercial kitchen space, where we are meticulous about sustainability. we have a designated pair of latex gloves and stainless steel scoops for each product to prevent waste, allergies, or other contamination. after jars and refills are packed, we place a paper freshness seal and product label on each good, which are (of course) made of 100% paper, printed with soy and algae-based ink.
