Here at Eat for You we take our commitment to preserving the future of Mother Earth very seriously. We don't do anything here at Eat for You without considering its effects upon our environment. We do this because our health is directly linked to the health of our planet.
When we say our food is organic, it means we are making deposits into the bank of regenerative farming, rather than withdrawals. It means we believe that food grown in nutrient rich soil, free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals, is best for everyone. It’s what you deserve to eat and we’ve taken the view that it’s our mission to provide it to you.
When we say we use compostable packaging, it means we’ve searched the globe for a certified home compostable cellulose based wrap for our food that will break down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass in your home compost, in less than 26 weeks. Even our stickers are compostable. We don’t want any trace of our packaging to end up in the ocean, so we’ve partnered with the teams at PA Packaging solutions and NoIssue to achieve this.
When we say we use recycled and recyclable products for our postage and marketing collateral, it means EVERY order you place will be packed in a FSC cardboard box (by us!) and brought to your door by Australia Post, who carbon offset all deliveries. Inside that box will be our woolpack insulation, to keep your food temperature stable as it travels the country. This is part compostable, and part recyclable. If that wasn’t enough, any flyer or recipe book you receive from us is printed on post consumer recycled paper. Practically, we don’t print more than we need.
When we say we are carbon negative - it means we are committed to giving back more carbon than we use each year. Even our manufacturing partner, Kitz Living Foods, is powered by 100% wind. As owner operators, we each calculate our carbon footprint (personal and business), then we double it and plant twice as many trees as needed to cover that. We are taking responsibility for our actions. How could we not, when changing the course of our future generation’s health is the reason we exist?
When we say we work from home, well, it means we work from home! We don’t power a big office space and spend our days nattering about the weekend at the printer. We use technology to streamline our work processes. As mothers, we apply the same principles of conservation and responsibility with our families, as we do with our business. We teach our kids to value - and be grateful for - the resources available to them. Because they are never infinite.
