always opt for sustainability!
environment, community and values
everyone wants to be sustainable, yet there is no common consensus on what sustainability actually means, creating a loophole for companies by greenwashing their persistent exploitations.
our understanding of sustainability extends to three dimensions:
1. environmental impact,
2. social commitment and
3. a culture built on values
here is a breakdown of each one to emphasize their impact on our sustainability promise.
95% less water consumption than conventional supermarket vegetables
our experimental data indicate that hydroponically grown broccoli microgreens would require 158–236 times less water than their mature vegetable counterparts to grow on california's central valley fields. they do so in 93–95% less time without the need for fertilizer, pesticides, or energy-demanding transport, which prevail in conventional farm to table processes.
22% less food waste than with conventional supermarket vegetables
22% of total food loss in average US households is attributed to fresh fruits and vegetables being wasted. ingarden’s hydroponic system reduces food waste and increases sustainable consumption by preserving the quality and freshness of the microgreens and thus eliminating distribution and ineffective storage practices that contribute to the faster degradation of food.
every purchase makes a difference
ingarden has joined forces with sharethemeal, part of the united nations world food program, to fight against hunger and towards accessible nutrition. for every ingarden sold, ingarden shares a nutritious meal with a child in need. ingarden purchases simultaneously benefit your nutritional intake and make a difference for others on a regional, national, and global level.
1 ingarden = 1 meal for a child in need
join us in the fight to end global hunger and shape the future of food as we work towards a more nutritionally-accessible and sustainable world. access our sharethemeal #ingardenxsharethemeal fundraising challenge here.
