Being USDA Certified Organic means we are:
- Free from toxic, persistent pesticides and fertilizers
- Part of an eco-system that supports healthy soil, water quality and biodiversity
- Supporting better conditions for farmers and farm workers
In 2017, we purchased nearly 1.2 million pounds of organic materials to make our kombucha.
Health-Ade is not just bottled in glass, it’s fermented in glass, which means you never have to worry about plastic and metal leaching. Using all glass is hard work, but we know it’s the right thing to do for the health of our bodies and our planet.
When you make as much kombucha as we do, you end up with a lot of steeped tea bags, juice pulp, and SCOBY!
We compost all of this organic matter, which reduces landfill waste and emissions, and nourishes healthier soil.
OUR LA OFFICE
We’re always looking for ways to reduce our footprint and engage our employees and fans, at our office and beyond. This year, we:
- Put bulk snacks for our break room, to reduce plastic packaging
- Swapped out water bottle delivery for a built-in water filtration system
- Started recycling coffee pods and bottle caps through Terracycle
- Reduced paper usage by more than 50%
- Hosted our first “Stuff Swap” where employees brought in unwanted items to trade
Health-Ade is built on our commitment to real food. Part of that is making real kombucha, and part of it is doing our part to increase access to real food for the people who need it most.
We are proud partners of the Garden School Foundation, an organization that gives underserved youth the opportunity to learn about gardening, nutrition, and cooking in a lush, outdoor garden classroom. For kids with little access to fresh food and greenspace, GSF is a much needed resource, and we are thrilled to help sustain their amazing educators and programming.GARDEN SCHOOL FDN
We’re going Zero Waste! Why? Because we know that waste is a big contributor to environmental deterioration and climate change, and we want to be part of the solution.
Our goal is to be Zero Waste (90% diversion rate) by 2020, via improved recycling systems, composting, and upcycling. We welcome your ideas and support!
