Earth has always been good to us. It’s time to finally start returning the favor. At mueslihaus, we’re committed to sustainability. Here’s how we’re doing our part to become a sustainable company.
We get 95% of the ingredients for our muesli from certified organic suppliers. The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While the regulations vary from country to country, in the United States, organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, and bioengineered genes (GMOs).
Fortunately, organic farming is not only better for your body but also better for the environment. In terms of sustainability, organic farming practices tend to reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without synthetic pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals.
Paper is the way to go for sustainable packaging. Unlike plastic, it comes from a renewable resource (TREES), and it decomposes much faster (plastic NEVER breaks down), and it’s generally easier to recycle and reuse.
In addition, the paper industry is a more sustainable industry, with a growing emphasis on responsible logging, waste reduction, and tree replanting. The plastic industry, on the other hand, still uses primarily crude oil and natural gas. This is not only bad for the environment, but it also accelerates the depletion of non-renewable resources.
We’re currently packaging with reusable plastic, but only because we’re waiting for our paper tubes to arrive!
Eating a plant-based diet is not just good for your health, but it’s also good for Earth’s health! This is because animal-sourced foods use much more water and carbon to produce than plant-based foods (yes, this includes eggs).
Think about it. It takes a lot of grain or gas to feed a cow, and it takes a lot of water to produce enough food for them. Almost two-thirds of all soybeans, corn, barley, and about a third of all grains are used as feed for animals. Likewise, producing just a pound of beef requires 1,800 gallons of water.
By choosing to eat a plant-based breakfast like Muesli, you can drastically cut your carbon footprint, save precious water supplies, and help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock. In terms of sustainability, plant-based in the way to go.
Because it’s so versatile, there are really endless possibilities. The only thing we don’t really suggest is eating it directly out of the bag.
Healthy, delicious, and nutritious, it’s simply a better way to breakfast. Plus, it’s not only good for you, but it’s also good for the planet.
