Environmentally Inspired

Around here, priority number one is providing you with inspiration. And we take that goal all the way to the way we treat our environment. Sustainable agriculture, environmental awareness and all-natural products are key parts of who we are.

• Our concentrate is packaged in compact, lightweight paper Tetra Paks which are recyclable in many states. You can find out if it’s recyclable in your community at www.recyclecartons.com.

• We use an environmentally smart aseptic packaging process that’s completely sterile, so our concentrates are shelf-stable and don’t require refrigeration. This means our packaging uses less energy to manufacture, fill, ship and store than virtually any other comparable package on the market. (Hello, energy efficiency!)

• Our dry mix cartons are made with recycled cardboard and our 3 lb bags are also made with recyclable materials – both formats are recyclable in every state in the United States.

Want to help us out? Please recycle our packages whenever possible. You won’t be able to see us smiling, but we will be. And so will Mother Nature.
