At Bare Blends, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and protecting our climate. It’s never been more important to reduce atmospheric carbon and monitor our impact on the planet.
We only have one planet. We need to nurture it for future generations. Organic farming does not only produce more delicious and nutritious ingredients, it also nourishes the earth for future farming. We choose to support the environment by ensuring our superfoods have been grown in organic farms or wild crafted.
Since our inception in 2012, we’ve always been mindful of our environmental impact. To be plastic free and create sustainable packaging has always been our ethos. We can proudly say that no Bare Blends product has ever been packaged in plastic, and we are achieving our goal of moving all products to 100% home-compostable packaging.
In today’s climate we believe the only way forward collectively is for all businesses to be 100% accountable and transparent. It’s never been more important to reduce atmospheric carbon and monitor our impact on the planet. Instead of aiming for carbon neutrality, we are setting the target of being carbon positive by 2025.
Trees are the most scalable and efficient way to remove carbon. They naturally capture and store carbon in their roots, branches, and leaves. Forest projects have the potential to capture billions of tonnes of CO2. Forests are important for regulating heat and clean water on the planet. They are teeming with biodiversity and are incredible carbon sinks.At this point, forest destruction accounts for 12-15% of annual global emissions. We need to act now to protect forests and reduce emissions. We’ve partnered with Pachama, an organisation leading the way in forest restoration and carbon reduction, to help us achieve these goals.
Unlike other offsets, Pachama checks projects to ensure they are protecting real carbon in old-growth trees or growing new ones. After planting, seedlings might die, but a carbon verification process ensures you are supporting projects where trees are not just planted, but grow and thrive, sequestering carbon along the way.Carbon credits purchased fund projects that directly protect and restore forests in cooperation with local communities. It includes hiring security staff to protect boundaries, planting seedlings, and creating new facilities to support forest projects. As we reduce greenhouse gases, we also protect critical forest ecosystems and wildlife habitat.Pachama harnesses satellite imaging with artificial intelligence to measure carbon captured in forests and bring new transparency and assurance to each project.
Reforestation projects focus on planting new trees to grow and restore forests. These efforts capture and store CO2 as the trees grow.
Forest conservation projects center around preserving old growth forests that are at risk of deforestation. Protecting these existing forests prevents CO2 emissions that would be released if they were destroyed.
Improved management efforts enable working forests to transition to sustainable forests with older trees. A primary goal of these projects is to maintain a high growth rate so trees store more CO2.
Home-compostable packaging is the most sustainable solution heading into the future. We have now moved all of our protein powders to 100% biodegradable and home-compostable refill bags.These bags are certified as both home and commercially compostable, and will degrade in both composting environments. Our packaging holds certifications which meet Australian standards (AS5810).As such, this bag and label will naturally degrade with heat and moisture. Please transfer your product to a jar or container soon after receiving, and follow these steps to turn this packaging back into the earth.
1. Once finished, tear the pouch and label into pieces2. Scatter into your home compost, worm farm or green bin3. Be proud you've contributed zero waste!
